“Martin Sexton’s voice comes in a hundred impossible shades. His songs are sweet and spirited and soulful. His repertoire is like a cross-country tour of the American musical vernacular.” —Boston Globe
Singer-songwriter Martin Sexton’s music blends many genres of American music, including soul, gospel, country, rock, blues, and R&B. He is known for his wide vocal range and ability to improvise. Sexton generously collaborates with other artists, such as John Mayer and Peter Frampton, to support social causes such as the Children’s Tumor Foundation and Hurricane Irene benefit efforts in Vermont. His songs can be heard in many feature films and television including NBC’s Scrubs, Parenthood and Showtime’s hit series Brotherhood.
“(Sexton’s) unpretentious heartiness helps him focus on every soul singer’s goal: to amplify the sound of the ordinary heart.” – Jon Pareles, The New York Times
