Martin helped make a very differcult day far more pleasant last week. With his carefully chosen songs he sang his way to making my dads wake, a beautiful celebration of his life. I didnt expect my mum to get up dancing- but she did! we all danced to his favourite songs and towards the end his set we were jumping up and down & with smiles remembering him to the songs he loved. So thank you Martin you were very much appreciated and gave us some priceless moments at a very differcult time.
Martin Jackson is a solo acoustic singer and guitarist based in Nottingham. Although a proficient songwriter, Martin takes delight in entertaining people with cover songs as part of making an event even more special through the performance of live music. Stemming from his diverse music taste, Martin prides himself on being highly adaptable. His soaring vocal and creative guitar arrangements cover a wide range of styles – he regularly performs sets of well known rock, pop, indie, blues, jazz, soul and folk songs, all depending on the type of event. Capable of laidback crooning, cheeky jazz flourishes, upbeat party vibes or full throttle rock n roll – Martin delivers the goods, and all performed with sincerity and passion. Martin is at all times a professional, and this comes from years of tireless experience gigging in both entertainment contexts and in performing original music. He has played in countless pubs, bars, restaurants and at weddings and corporate events, meaning Martin is always at ease with a crowd. This means if needed he can either become a vibrant personality on stage or alternatively tone things down as to become part of the background. During 2016, he undertook a 60-date tour of the UK’s Parkdean Resorts as part of the lauded caberet duo Twist and Shout, embracing the demand for utmost professionalism and high quality musical entertainment. Previous endeavours have taken him onto the Pepsi Max stage at the prestigious Download Festival, as well as YNot Festival and MacmillanFest. Notable artists he has performed alongside include Reef, Chuck Mosley, TesseracT, Jim Bob, Breed 77, Spear of Destiny and OPM. He has also made appearances in Classic Rock, Rocksound, Kerrang and Metalhammer magazines with regards to his role as lead singer for Nottingham rock band Emperor Chung. As well as his musical performance skill, Martin is also an adept sound technician.
