Jeff Martin

Listen to his song 'Tired'

Jeff MartinThe track featured here was featured on the 7? single that Jeff Martin released in early July 2001. You may have heard the songs from the 7" as it has been getting airplay on Phantom FM, Anna Livia as well as XFM. At the time of writing Jeff is gearing up for the release of his debut album 'Still'. The release will be marked by a launch night at The Shelter (Vicar St) on Friday 31st August at 8pm. This is Jeff's debut headline performance and will feature support from Dot Creek, Richard Egan & DJ Stephen Shannon. All those who pay at the door will receive a free copy of the album on CD.

Drawing from the sounds of the underground, his music has more in common with Dublin's underground scene than the city's long established singer/songwriter community. Jeff Martin has maintained a modest profile to date, by playing some low-key acoustic gigs (including the webcast in March February 2001). His songs are honest, emotive and downbeat. They comprise evocative lyrics and a unique guitar style that veers from delicately sparse to intricate.
