Saw an amazing program on John martyn the other night and wanted to share this mans pure soul and genius. A folk singer at heart, he pushed the boundaries with his vocal delivery, slurring his words so they become a constant stream, sometimes one never ending note. He was one of the earliest pioneers of echo dub effects on acoustic guitar, always pushing the boundaries and never standing still. A true artist, crazy and defiant.
Buy his albums ‘Solid Air’ and ‘One World’ as starters and you’ll Never Look Back.
Check out ‘May You Never’, probably his most famous work
