Singer-Songwriter, Martin Sexton, is playing The Calvin in Northampton, MA on Saturday, November 21st. Sexton's latest release is Mixtape of the Open Road. He is a walking blender of American music including soul, gospel, country, rock, blues, and rhythm and blues. His elastic vocal range, improvisational ability, scat singing, guitar solos, and finger-style guitar picking come along with a very comfy, varied, feel.
Sexton began his career busking in Harvard Square. After releasing two recordings on Atlantic Records he eventually launched his very own label.
He joined us at The Linda to talk about his musical inspirations and to play a few tunes.
