Martin Harley – traditional blues rhythms, short-cut guitar riffs & rock ‘n’ roll choruses…

The musician is the founder of The Martin Harley Band, a British blues trio, and he also performs solo as Martin Harley. He has been steadily developing a solo career in the U.S. with his first album “Mojo Fix” released in 2012.

Martin’s band are renowned for using obscure instrumentation in their live concerts, including a Weissenborn guitar, balalaika, cocktail drum-kit, cajon and double bass.

In 2005, Harley took part in what has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the ‘Highest Gig in the World‘ — playing his blues 21,000 feet up Kala Patthar in the Himalayas.

Title-song, “Roll With The Punches” twinkles like a buffalo moon, with spiritual vocals, traditional blues rhythms, short-cut guitar riffs and a rock ‘n’ roll chorus. This is a simple and sincere gift to roots lovers. Splendid.
