About Martin Sexton
Best known for his untamed and unpredictable voice, Sexton seamlessly mixes folk, rhythm and blues, jazz, and rock in his tracks, intertwined with bluesy guitar and soulful grooves. Sexton has influenced a generation of contemporary artists—from John Mayer to Dave Matthews—and continues to keep his music fresh and relatable. Having established his name, Sexton has shared the spotlight with artists who inspired him: Art Garfunkel, Jackson Browne, John Hiatt and others. The Appel Room’s intimate stage provides the perfect setting for this singer-songwriter whose honest lyrics and vocal prowess will have audiences hooked. But don’t take our word for it; Mayer described him as "the best live performer I've ever seen." And Matthews called him "one of my favorite singers and songwriters."
