Upstate New Yorker and musician’s musician Martin Sexton will perform in Grass Valley on Oct. 11 during a performance presented by The Center for the Arts.
Since launching his own record label, KTR, fiercely independent Martin Sexton has infiltrated many musical worlds including pop collaborations with John Mayer, Jam scene concerts and classic rock collaborations with Peter Frampton. Sexton has performed around the globe and at festivals such as the Newport Folk Fest, Bonnaroo and New Orleans Jazz Fest.
Sexton left home with 75 bucks and a Stratocaster to chase his musical dreams singing in the streets of Harvard Square in Cambridge, Mass. Gradually he worked his way to the premier venues of North America, inspiring fans and musicians along the way. Today, he headlines The Filmore and Carnegie Hall.
Sexton’s releases include: In The Journey (1992), Black Sheep (1996), The American (1998), Wonder Bar (2000), Live Wide Open (2002), Camp Holiday (2005), Seeds (2007), Sugarcoating (2010), Fall Like Rain (2012) and Mixtape (2015)
Sexton’s songs can be heard in feature films and television: Showtime’s Masters of Sex and Brotherhood, NBC’s Scrubs and Parenthood, and the IFC film, Lucky Them.
Stage, film and television aside, when Sexton isn’t touring he often mixes entertainment with his sense of social responsibility. He has performed benefits for Paul Newman’s “Hole in the Wall Gang” camp, the Children’s Tumor Foundation, Japan earthquake and tsunami relief (The John Lennon Tribute), Hurricane Irene relief, and Life Is Good Playmaker Charity.
