Frank Gayer Martin picked up the guitar and lifted his voice at the age of thirteen. Now 35 years later, he knows it’s not how well one plays and sings, “but how much soul you bring to the party.”

Born in Houston, transplanted as kid to Colorado, Martin was hooked by the wounded charisma of Gram Parson which lead to the taproots of Americana - Bob Wills, Bill Monroe, Clifton Chenier, Buck Owens and all things Hee Haw.

His new CD, Postmark, is a letter with first-hand stories about his grandfather, hurricanes, the dark side of fundamentalism, death and love. Martin lives in Glenwood Springs and plays guitar, mandolin, lap slide and lap steel with local bands and visiting troubadours.

“Frank Martin is a rarity. Dexterous as a player, writer and singer, he is thoughtful and skilled in his approach and passionate in his delivery. He is a unique, first-class musical personality.”
–Tom Kimmel

“All the good pickers are NOT on the Front Range! This guy Frank Martin''s got a great character voice and an on-target sense of arranging, plus he shows up playing terrific slide and guitar.”
–Chuck Pyle

"Frank Martin, a really fine songwriter, is also a sly and subtle slide guitar player with a real understanding of American roots music — he makes me smile."
–Kenny Edwards
