A native of Syracuse, N.Y., and the tenth of 12 children, Martin Sexton grew up in the ’80s.


“The real thing, people.” -Billboard


In 2018 American singer-songwriter Martin Sexton extends touring in support of his ninth studio release Mixtape of the Open Road.   The Wall Street Journal and CMT  premiered tracks from the album that since garnered much critical acclaim. “Outstanding taste in songwriting as well as a soul-marinated voice.” -Rollingstone

Syracuse native Sexton got his start singing in the streets and subways of Boston in the early 90’s. Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, he has influenced a generation of contemporary artists. His songs have appeared in television series such as Scrubs, Parenthood, Masters of Sex and in numerous films, though it’s his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for more.
