A Duet Past Due: Martin & Marotta

Pre-Order: February 6, 2018
Release: March 1, 2018

Soul Redemption is the debut release from guitarist/vocalist Flav Martin and drummer Jerry Marotta. This duet past due harmoniously blends modern folk rock with Italian pop music. Performed in a cafe in Italy or on the polo fields of Indio, these songs would feel comfortably at home in either environment.

Credited as one of the most innovative acoustic guitar players on the scene today, Flav Martin blends beautiful melodies with intricate technique, voicing, and a percussive style that leaves people saying “How does he do that?”.  Throughout his career Flav has performed with David Crosby, Al Stewart, Suzanne Vega, Tommy Emmanuel and more. Flav’s many writing credits include Saturday Night Live, PBS, Canon Films. All but two of the songs on this album were written by Flav.

World renowned drummer, touring and session musician/producer Jerry Marotta has left his mark on countless recordings by Paul McCartney, Hall & Oats, The Indigo Girls, Marc Cohn, Sarah MacLachlan, and John Mayer to name but a few. He first entered the music scene as the drummer for Orleans with the hit single “Still the One” followed by a decade of performing and recording with Peter Gabriel. His rhythmic drumming and world music inspired percussion complement the acoustic flavor of Flav’s guitar.

Backing up the duo are their long time friends Tony Levin (bass), Peter Primamore (piano), Thor Jensen (guitar), Mark Shulman (guitar), and Gary Schreiner (harmonica/accordion).

Featuring Jerry Marotta, the drummer from Gabriel’s classic line-up (1977-1986), plus Trey Gunn from King Crimson, on a 10-string touch guitar. The recent addition of Happy Rhodes, with her 4-octave vocal range, fulfills the band’s promise of re-envisioning the music of Peter Gabriel. Rounding out the band from Shriekback and Sky Cries Mary is Michael Cozzi on guitar and co-founder of Gig Performer and computer scientist David Jameson on keyboards and Eigenharp.

The band’s latest album CONTACT is their first full length live album to feature Happy on vocals. In addition to 10 songs from the classic Peter Gabriel era, CONTACT also includes a stirring cover of Kate Bush’s “Mother Stands For Comfort” showcasing Happy’s vocal talents.
