Martin Sexton is a kind of Walt Whitman of American music. He is a self-taught singer-songwriter out of Syracuse, NY who made his chops playing for change on the streets of Boston. Now heâ€™s on the biggest tour of his career, filling halls from the Roseland Ballroom in New York to The Fillmore in San Francisco.
Sexton's got a big voice, a big heart and a big sense of humor. He wants it all, and sings it all -- pouring it into a big parade of blues and folk, country and rock.
Â His fans come in happy and leave blissed out. The word they use again and again to describe him is "soul." Sexton obviously has got plenty of it.
