Grade 7 distinction level guitarist and pro coached vocalist for a professional and entertaining performance

There are many guitarists who sing a bit, and many singers who play guitar a bit. I offer a high standard at both. I have been playing guitar for 25 years, and have achieved a distinction at Grade 7 Rock and Pop guitar. I've been singing for years too, and have been developing my technique with vocal coach Julie Miles (some might have seen her as a judge on the BBC's All Together Now show). I can deliver pretty much any material, but I particularly enjoy bittersweet love songs by classic artists such as The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John and Chris Isaak. I offer a professional service with the highest level of equipment - both acoustic and electric guitars, loopers, and a pro PA system. I am always discreet, polite, on time, and will fit in perfectly to whatever sort of event you are planning. Please have a look at my videos, and if there is something you'd like me to perform, just ask and I'll make a video just for you. All the best, Martin

From customers:

Chris M, 3 years ago

Martin played for over an hour at our wedding and the marquee was mesmerised. He played a load of old acoustic classics mixed with some superb looped improvisation. If we ever get married again we'll have him back!

Quite good
