Carrie Martin

Born in Hull, Carrie developed something a local reputation while still in her teens, as an acoustic guitarist and singer/songwriter.

She fronted bands in the 90s before casting her music aside in order to raise her children, her guitar went untouched for some two decades until a chance meeting with guitar virtuoso Gordon Giltrap changed her life.

Close mentoring from Gordon saw her take a huge leap forward, attracting endorsements from Vintage Guitars, G7th Capos and Martin Strings.

Her  last album Seductive Sky feature guests Gordon Giltrap, keyboard maestro Oliver Wakeman and legendary guitarist Elliott Randall, along with Daniel Karl Cassidy, younger brother of the late Eva Cassidy. 

Her brand new album Entity released  Sept 2020 again feature both Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman again but has the addition of ex Bad Company guitarist Dave Colwell on two tracks . 

Both albums  are a magnificent snapshot of an artist at the peak of her creativity and gaining her fine reviews & the  chance to perform under the Vintage Guitar banner at NAMM 2020 in LA. 

QUOTES.... 

Carrie is a ‘triple threat’, possessed of the ability to craft a fine song, nimble finger-picking skill, and a beguiling voice. Her tone rests somewhere between a young Kate Bush and All About Eve’s Julianne Regan: delicate but infused with an inner strength. A perfect combination to showcase her memorable tunes and evocative lyrics. ‘Talk In Colour’ is an infectious pop song that if there is any justice, will be gracing the BBC Radio 2 playlist before long.”

Trevor Raggatt RnR Magazine

“Having heard this album I think if it weren’t for covid times this would have been a natural for radio 6 and Radio 2”
