Martin Harley has been making music and touring the world for almost thirty years. His sound has never been more down to earth, exploring roots, blues and slide guitar in a style The Guardian referred to as ‘spellbinding’.

Martin Harley has released nine albums to date, four recorded on home soil and four across the Atlantic, in Texas and Nashville. His solo shows are known for mixing excellent musicianship and songwriting with a down-to-earth sense of humour - and tales of three decades of travel around the world.

His recent nominations in various realms include: AMA instrumentalist of the year, Best Acoustic Guitarist, Best Acoustic Blues artist. Notable appearances include Glastonbury Acoustic and Avalon stages, Beautiful Days, the Royal Albert Hall, Union Chapel, the Bluebird Café in Nashville and The Troubadour in Los Angeles.
