Guitarist and singer/songwriter Martin Sexton has a vocal style that AllMusic.com describes as “truly soulful – [a combination of] the best qualities of singers like Van Morrison, Al Green, Aaron Neville and Otis Redding.” Sexton’s songs can be heard in feature films and television, including Showtime’s “Brotherhood” and NBC’s “Parenthood.” He has collaborated with John Mayer and Peter Frampton and others in between. His latest CD, “Mixtape of the Open Road,” is a musical cross-country trip that takes listeners back to times etched in one’s soul.
