Jeff Martin, Leadbelly, Newtown – 5th July 2018
Jeff Martin‘s reputation as a world renowned live performer is well known and he has been labeled everything from “child prodigy”, “virtuoso guitarist”, and a “singer with perfect pitch”. Jeff formed The Tea Party with his lifelong friends, Stuart Chatwood and Jeff Burrows in 1990 after many years of playing in bands together throughout their childhood. With a career spanning over 20 years , 8 major-label releases and 4 million record sales later The Tea Party have successfully gained the attention of fans on a worldwide level, as well as touring a countless number of times throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia. Much of the band’s success can be attributed to their phenomenal stage presence and impeccable artistry and musicianship with a wide variety of instruments and sound textures; the trio’s sound draws heavily on the rock and blues of the 1970s, as well as displaying some psychedelic influences with elements of Middle Eastern, Celtic and Mediterranean music.
“I’m particularly thrilled to change up my solo show and give my audience something different. I’ll be incorporating new songs and playing a couple of Moroccan inspired songs from the EP available only at the shows”… Jeff Martin..
