Born and raised in the English countryside, Martin Kerr has built his career one passer-by at a time, singing his way from street-corners to concert halls and arenas. Often compared to the best of the 1970s troubadours - Cat Stevens, James Taylor, John Denver - Martin's soulful voice and lyrics connect with listeners of all ages and backgrounds. While travelling in China as an 18-year-old, Martin briefly met a Canadian girl, who then wooed him from afar with poems and mixtapes, and sent him a plane ticket to Edmonton. They're now married with 3 children. The unique story of their long-distance courtship often forms an integral and charming part of his live show. Now based in Alberta, Martin plays for thousands of people every year, including folk clubs, festivals and concert venues, such as the Winspear Centre. Martin's talent has already earned him opening spots with Andy Grammer, Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Sean McCann (Great Big Sea) and Sarah McLachlan. Expect to see him on more big stages soon.
