Inspired by blues, gospel and country, Harley delivers catchy slide driven blues wrapped in his warm soulful vocals reminiscent of Little Feat.

Joining him on stage are drummer Harry Harding (Yola Carter/William the Conquerer); award-winning Australian bassist Rex Horan (Eric Clapton, Van Morrison & Laura Marling) and Hammond maestro Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford/Matt Schofield). 

Martin is a dynamic live performer with frequent appearances in the UK, Europe and the USA.

He has eight albums to his credit, including his latest with the full band, Roll With the Punches, which has received universal acclaim. One reviewer hailing it as “one of the best albums I’ve heard all year’

In 2018, Total Guitar Magazine ranked him #16 in the World’s greatest acoustic guitarist poll and he was nominated as Instrumentalist of the Year at the Americana music awards 2019. Music Radar ranked him as one of the best ten blues guitarists in the world.
