Martin is an outstanding singer and songwriter, whose career in music now stretches back over thirty years of critical acclaim and relentless touring.

Martin Stephenson began his career as a busker aged 15.

He developed his song-writing technique by firstly learning a few licks from a Spanish guitar book and repeated the process with Jazz, Blues, Country, Skiffle, Reggae etc. Martin formed his band The Daintees, who were signed by Kitchenware Records at around the same time as Prefab Sprout and Hurrah!

The band recorded the classic albums 'Boat To Bolivia'  (1986) Gladsome, Humour & Blue (1988) and 'Salutation Road'(1990) and Martin have always been known for their incredible range of styles, each album covering a multitude of genres, tempos and moods. 

Stephenson's live performances are an exuberant tour-de-force, combining heart-in-your-mouth intimacy with playful humour and warm self-deprecation. He is a unique, engaging, spontaneous, and talented performer.
