Hi, I’m Adrian Martin. I play acoustic and electric guitar and I sing.
My passion as a performer is equal to my identity as a teacher. I bring music to people’s lives.
I perform great tunes as a solo artist and appear with a variety of bands. I’ve entertained audiences all over the map from the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island to Alaska to Prague to Texas as well as my home base in Portland Or. I’ve been featured as the opening act for song writing legend Warren Zevon and blues guitar hero Lonnie Mack. I’ve worked with Emmy award winner Faith Rivera and Tony award winner Mark Hollmann. I appear with Portland's finest jazz and blues players. As a songwriter, I’ve been featured in showcases throughout the Pacific Northwest such as "Bite of Seattle" and syndicated radio shows like "River City Folk". I have also worked as producer for these shows: “Neil Young, Take a Look at My Life”, “Beatles On My Mind” and “Artichoke Jazz Nite 2013 and 2014”, “I Put a Spell on You – a tribute to Nina Simone” (with LaRhonda Steele). All shows sold out! I am a versatile performer. "Street Roots" newspaper calls me, "Musicalicious".
