, Canadian singer-songwriter, late last year unveiled the album Down, Record.
This release sounds as if Bruce Springsteen
with his raspy vocals decided to put out a solo acoustic album, modelling the guitar and harmonica stylings of Neil Young
. It is gratifying to see modern artists continuing to produce exceptional folk albums. In Martyre’s words about his release, “I’ve always paid attention to the lyrics in the songs I listen to. It’s always been an important part to me. I tried to keep the music simple, and give the lyrics, and the listener room to breathe.” Down, Record
is available to purchase on his Bandcamp page
and stream below. More information about Mark Martyre can be found on his website
