"Kevin Martin playing the Sunset Strip"

"Saturday, May 28 San Diego based solo artist Kevin Martin will truck his talents up the coast to The Sunset Strip, for an intimate performance at On The Rox. Already a staple of his hometown music scene, Martin has been honored six times at the San Diego Music Awards for his work co-writing and performing with close friends Get Back Loretta. Now attempting to break out on his own as a solo act, Martin is poised to stun the world with his hooky, yet original sense of “throwback piano pop.” Before heading out to the show tomorrow, get to know this artist on the brink… READ MORE - http://theroxyonsunset.com/?p=5525"

"Kevin Martin "Throwback Pop" (Inspired Flight)"

"I will honestly say that his album, in my opinion, has the most hip, creative, catchy, and maturely-crafted pop melodies I have ever heard on a pop album"

"Kevin Martin "Throwback Pop""

"Kevin Martin, keyboardist & songwriter San Diego's Get Back Loretta, has stepped aside from his bandmates for a minute to release a solo album. Throwback Pop delivers on it's name giving the listener some formulaic but fun ear candy that will get their toes tapping. Kevin stays close to his keyboard which anchor many of the songs with it's beats. Listeners might enjoy the pure pop goodness of "Tv News" or the rockin guitars of Fall Again but don't mistake Throwback Pop for a feel good album. As the tracks progress, the tempo slows, the strings become more prominent and the true beauty of the record starts to shine through culminating with the haunting melody and heartbreaking intensity of "Lie To Me." Front to back Throwback Pop seems to take you on a failed relationship from it's poppy beginnings to its tragic aftermath and slightly more optimistic denouement. "Looking For Love." Enjoy each track individually or listen to the tracks in order for the full emotional effect."

"Kevin Martin at Sunset Sessions"

a "favorite moment" comment from sunset sessions survey thought you'd dig! Almost ready for bed."It's 1 am and Kevin Martin is playing up in the Presidental suite with a packed room with no microphone. Apparently he brought his piano from home and lugged it all the way up the hill./ I have no idea how he did that, but the boy won me over and everyone else in that room too. We're now friends on Facebook. lol. I'm like a super fan now." - Sunset Sessions 2012

Bio

Meet Kevin Martin - a solo pop-rock songwriter. Kevin’s style of music is what he calls “Throwback Pop” - which takes his modern flair for performance and combines it with his love of vintage piano-pop. Kevin's infectious sound is enjoyed by children and adults alike. To create his self-titled album, Kevin Martin paired up with music producer Lauren Scheff. Lauren’s pop production and arrangement skills alongside Kevin’s upbeat melodies have created an album with a sound that is catchy enough for the masses, while still maintaining that indie sense of creativity and originality. While Kevin is technically making his debut as a solo performer, he is a seasoned musician and was an integral member of San Diego's most beloved pop band Get Back Loretta, who took home six San Diego Music Awards.
