JPR Live Session: Martin Sexton (2015)
Singer-songwriter Martin Sexton creates music that instantly draws you in. His songs cover the American musical landscape of soul, gospel, R&B, country and blues. Sexton slides easily from the mellow tenor that Rolling Stone calls “soul marinated” to a surprisingly beautiful falsetto and back down again to a raspy blues shout, creating an experience that is dynamic and emotional. His energetic and heartfelt live performances have earned him legions of devoted fans and critical acclaim.
Sexton's latest album, Mixtape of the Open Road, was released earlier this year. As he told Billboard magazine, "The concept of this record is that it's the mixtape, just like when your friends knew you were taking that California trip and wanted to inspire you along the way."
