Upcoming JPR Live Session: Martin Sexton | November 7 @ Noon
Martin Sexton's dynamic, soulful voice ranges from tenor to a gorgeous falsetto. His always positive message resonates with audiences, especially during challenging times. An Open Air favorite, this is his third JPR Live Session.
Join us for a JPR Live Session with singer-songwriter Martin Sexton on November 7 at Noon.
Originally from Syracuse, Martin Sexton got his musical start busking in Boston in the late 1980s. He credits his time playing on the streets with developing his chops as a performer. In 1994, he won the National Academy of Songwriters Artist of the Year Award. His first release was a self-recorded cassette from 1990 that sold 15,000 copies before being reissued.
His most recent release was a pandemic recording—an EP of hopeful songs called 2020 Vision which he recorded at his cabin in upstate New York.
Martin Sexton is touring on the West Coast – Performing November 5 at the Historic Ashland Armory, November 6 in Arcata at the Arcata Theatre Lounge and November 9 at the Cascade Theatre in Redding. Tickets for the Redding show are available at cascadetheatre.org.
