CROSS-POLLINATION LXIV - TUES AUG 23RD - 7:30-10 PM
TODD MARTIN
DEREK JAMES


It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Really...some one said that once. Similarly, a performer like Todd Martin is worth at least that and more but we've only so much space here on the "internet".

In order to describe Martin’s onstage character we’d have to combine the vocal ability of Adam Duritz (Counting Crows) and Steven Page (Bare Naked Ladies), the technical live looping/sampling effects of Kellar Williams and Howie Day, and the charisma of Matt Nathanson and Stephen Kellogg. If all that fits into one performer, it is Todd Martin.

With a broad range of influences such as Death Cab For Cutie, Damien Rice, Neil Young, and Ryan Adams, his songwriting style brings contemporary folk writing to pop music. This one man entertainment package stands high above many in a crowded world of male singer/songwriters.

...but wait...theres more...

... the band of musicians he plays with, "the Ends", bring even more life, character and charisma to the stage. They help turn Martin's solo singer/songwriter act into a rock show worth seeing. (please see ToddMartinMusic.com for more info on the band).


"[Todd Martin] puts on an amazing one man acoustic show. On the stage he is comfortable and adorable. - Dianna Augustine, Amps Eleven Magazine

Derek lives in Brooklyn and plays guitar. He is charming.
