A singular, gutsy approach to songwriting.
"Somewhere between Lou Reed and John Prine."
EVEN AUTUMN, the first in a series of Stephen Martin Anthologies to be released this year by IMG Records, is now available world-wide at all digital music stores, including: emusic.com and IRIS Music Group.
Even Autumn is a compilation of "strange and beautiful" gems culled from Orpheus 4 (available at Amazon.com), Recipe (Martin, MacKay & Schell, available at this site), Oroboros (Stephen Martin, available at this site), and Boston Sound Revisited Vol. 2 (various artists, available at IRIS Music Group).
Song list: Even Autumn, Monkey Demon, Lucianne, It Gets Worse Every Time, Elephant, Breakdown Lane, Whiskey Waltz, Buried Alive with Snakes, Big Green Pearl, The Past Is Gone.
Oroboros is a collection of songs that throb and twitch with a mystic energy as Martin interweaves slices of real-life with hallucinatory folklore.
Martin effortlessly swings from the edgy ("Buried Alive With Snakes") to the mournful ("Leviathan's Dream") to the outraged ("Poverty Mountain") to the simply sweet ("Prove My Love"). Martin's slice-and-dice guitar tone and weathered vocals combine to produce a unique artistic character, one that makes sounds you won't soon forget.
