Martin Sexton at Buffalo Iron Works
Join us for a very special evening with Martin Sexton live at Buffalo Iron Works – Sunday October 17, 2021!
This is a general admission fully seated show.
Singer-songwriter Martin Sexton is like an ultra-active antenna, adventuring through the static to grab a clear signal. When he dials in on one station, he then quickly shifts to the next one. This ever changing attention span drives his family crazy, but its ingrained in Martin, dating back to his childhood when he would tear through television primetime programming.
This ability to hone in on little defining moments suits Martin as a songwriter as evident by his latest EP, 2020 Vision. This is Martins first release in 6 years, and it is a poetically emotive and an elegantly evocative pandemic scrapbook. In one song, Im building a treehouse with my son. In another song, Im crossing America and seeing the beauty in people rising through adversity and loving each other, Martin details.
Martins ever-shifting focus also manifests itself in his freewheeling musicality. He nurtured a critically-acclaimed trademark aesthetic through embracing soul, folk, blues, rock, pop, and sweet balladry. His last album, 2015s Mixtape of the Open Road, garnered raves from the Wall Street Journal, Billboard, Folk Alley/NPR Music, and Relix Magazine.
One constant in Martins life and his music is celebrating America. His 1996 Black Sheep album featured a rendition of America The Beautiful, and his major-label debut was simply called The American. Also, Martin getting his start in music through leaving his upstate New York hometown with seventy-five bucks and a Stratocaster to chase his aspirations brims with anthemic American Dream overtones. 2020 Vision continues this American story.
