Singer-songwriter Martin Sexton says we’re living in the new sixties.  He’s with us.

Guests

Martin Sexton, a musician, he’s on tour, and his new EP is Fall Like Rain.

From Tom’s Reading List

American SongwriterMartin Sexton is the guy John Mayer calls “one of the most treasured singer-songwriters I’ve ever heard in my life.” Mayer must have first become acquainted with the Syracuse, New York-born artist when he was busking in Harvard Square while Mayer was a student at Boston’s Berklee School of Music. The two Boston transplants have a fair share in common, namely how to write an unabashed pop hook and sing it with an expressive soul-inflected croon.”
