OK, now this is a surprise if ever there was one. ANOTHER NIGHT IN CHICAGO recalls the Cliff Richard of the late 1980´s and has a slightly rocky, country feel to it. Martin´s voice is smooth, sultry and sublime and fits in seamlessly with the kicking backing instrumental display from seasoned, skilled performers. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, Martin skilfully takes that first track in a whole new direction and adds a hot chorus which shows off the beautiful intensity of his talent. Chicago thanks the maestro for his ode and reciprocates his affection; hoping against hope that the love interest will reflect on the situation at hand and just maybe - stay another night. ROADS TO CASABLANCA - coming so soon after ´Another Night In Chicago´ will lead you into thinking that you had wondered into a video store with incredibly good taste. But no, you´re actually in the presence of a musical genius. Martin´s voice slows down for this slightly rocking ballad with a twist. The vocals, once again, could charm the birds out of the trees and will undoubtedly hold the attention of the young at heart. It has been quite some time since I have heard anything as evocative or enchanting as this record. MIDNIGHT BLUE adds a Latin flavour to proceedings and one instantly begins to imagine lovers dancing in the moonlight as the reflection of the stars´ beauty in unison hits the waves. While he´s not quite there yet, Andy Martin´s vocals echo Sting´s prowess with a love song. ROCKIN´ ON THE AIRWAVES recalls the movies of 1960´s America and dare we say it, one senses that Elvis, wherever he ended up, may be looking upon this tune smiling his approval. ALL FIRED UP echoes the genius of Robert Palmer. Andy Martin makes it impossible to refuse to dance. As comfortable with Country as good old Rock N Roll, Andy Martin is a treasure and my recommendation is to get yourself a copy of this album and take yourself on the trip of a lifetime.

STARS will always be my favourite song, there´s something so poignant about it and this indefineable bitter sweet feeling is in all of Andy´s work. ANOTHER NIGHT IN CHICAGO is a great production and worthy of prominence. I love BLUE GUITAR - when you´ve actually seen the instrument it makes sense. WATERFRONT STREET is marvellous. GIVING IT ALL TO YOU and TAKE LOVE, GIVE LOVE have that Andy Martin quality, so professional and trustworthy. ROADS TO CASABLANCA is a great piece that makes you smile but the best track of all in my book is MIDNIGHT BLUE - it is fantastic and says it all. - Independent Review by Peter Sarstedt


Andy Martin presents an "instant hits" gem of a CD that showcases his command over meaningful lyrics, finely crafted arrangements and precise production skills. Sex appeal to the ears from a versatile master songwriter! (www.CDbaby.com) - CD BABY

Andy Martin, an Anglo/Australian singer-songwriter, released his independent solo CD "Intervals" in mid-February 2005 via Cdbaby. He has scored seven No.1´s in various indie charts and his CD was voted No.1 by global listeners of UK internet radio station www.aiiradio.net (London.) After reading about Barcelona based company PolyphonicHMI (www.polyphonichmi.com) and their revolutionary hit song prediction software, Andy contacted the directors of PolyphonicHMI. Two of his songs were analysed for the US market and were given "potential hit single" status. PolyphonicHMI have a 100% hit song accuracy rate and their software is now in use by all the major record labels. Andy Martin decided to offer to sell the copyright to one of his tracks, a rock anthem ballad called "Can´t Love No More" and is the first songwriter in the world to offer an unpublished "hit" for sale on the web for 1 Million US dollars - visit: www.auctionsongs.com (Canada) - www.mi2n.com/press.php3?press_nb=88294

Bio

Anglo/Australian Andy Martin resides in Germany but his music lives an international life of its own. His success has come with ROCKIN´ ON THE AIRWAVES through the London internet station www.AiiRadio.net where the track was twice listener voted number one in late 2004. A sound-clip is permanently on AiiR´s website & the song is in the station´s Hall Of Fame. This track is from his Number 1 CD album & a second track, WATERFRONT STREET also hit number one for him at AiiRadio. On February 10th 2005, the day before the CD´s official launch, a 3rd single from the CD (STAY - a duet featuring Hollie Bourne) also went to number one, virtually guaranteeing that this album has made some form of musical history in the "independently released" retail sector.

A hot CD review by Peter Sarstedt (writer of WHERE DO YOU GO TO MY LOVELY) was followed by radio playlisting on many FM stations in the Netherlands & ROCKIN´ ON THE AIRWAVES being featured on Olon Mega Top 50, a radio promotional compilation. The rock classic power ballad CAN´T LOVE NO MORE is off the INTERVALS CD & is available through the Cdbaby & Tower Records catalogues. Registered with Soundscan, INTERVALS is Andy´s latest CD & complete with UPC barcode, is a ready & definite winner to hit the shop shelves.

Andy was represented at MIDEM 2005 by Australian Music Marketing Abroad & was featured in the center of the A&R magazine plus 2 tracks on the MIDEM compilation disc: Print run 8,000 units available to Midem attendees & industry-only mailouts. Promotional activities for the CD are currently underway in Germany & the Netherlands. CD release date: February 11th 2005.

2 further tracks (MIDNIGHT BLUE and STAY) from the CD were also featured at POPKOMM BERLIN 2005 in the A&R magazine & sampler.
