Martin Harley is a supremely talented acoustic roots and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation.
Live at Southern Ground

His eagerly anticipated new album, was recorded in
Nashville in collaboration with Daniel Kimbro (Jerry Douglas, Larkin Poe) on
upright bass.
As Martin explains
“I wanted to make something representative of where
I’m at musically at the moment with an album that reflects on the last year solo and duo touring. Daniel and I met in Knoxville thro
ugh a mutual friend... he handed me his card which read... 'alright guitar pl
ayer... good upright bass player’ ... an understatement on both parts!”
A mixture of retrospective solo and duo arrangement
s recorded during an afternoon at the esteemed Southern Ground
studio in Nashville, Live at Southern Groundfeatures Martin on Weissenborn... a traditional Hawaiian acoustic guitar played across the lap, resonators and archtops, and of course Daniel Kimbro on upright bass.
“It's a simple, honest and direct album with no overdubs in a warm sounding room with some great micro
phones and two new friends playing a few songs over a cold beer or two”
says Martin.
“There’s a great feeling when you click with someone. It frees you up to experiment with the arrangement and the dynamic of a song.”
Live at Southern Ground follows on from Martin’s five previously acclaimed
albums, most recently Mojo Fixin 2012.
Along with many years of international touring and
countless festivals Martin has built a strong inter
national fan-base across the globe.
Renowned for his prowess as a slide guitarist, Martin is almost unique in the UK in his playing lap slide. During year-round worldwide
touring he’s absorbed a plethora of diverse influences, honing his craft into the classic songwriting style he possesses today.
In the US, Martin has headlined Music City Roots in Nashville and toured coast to coast with ZZ Ward, Delta Rae and opened for Iron and Wine, Bruce Hornsby, Five for Fighting, World Party, Beth Hart, Joe Bonamassa amongst many others.
Martin will be touring solo across the UK during November and December and plans for a duo tour with Daniel are already in the pipeline for March 2016.
