iTunes Review

Since Martin Sexton's prior studio outing Wonder Bar came out seven years before Seeds, some consider this a comeback. Fair enough, but also consider that upon meeting the right person, seven years can just fly by. In the bubbling and rootsy opener "Happy," Sexton sings of loving every minute that he spends with his soul-mate: The fellas are gonna have to understand/ And tip their hats to the man who scored. "Thought I Knew Ya" continues on the same sunny path with help from a musty old Wurlitzer pounding out soulful chords as Sexton croons about the fleeting flings endured before meeting his true love. The gospel-steeped piano ballad "Wild Angels" downshifts as Sexton recalls both Otis Redding and Van Morrison, emoting amorously about holding onto his woman during tumultuous times. The festival friendly cover of Billy Preston's "Will It Go Round In Circles" sounds like a Hootie & The Blowfish b-side, but "I'm Here" rebounds with some Beatlesque pomp and lyrics that further proclaim his undying devotion for that special someone. Sexton serenades his woman throughout, so maybe Seeds is more of a gift from the heart than a comeback album.

Customer Reviews

everything i've waited & prayed for.

i won't pretend i'm not an enormous marty fan. his music is pretty much the soundtrack to my own personal heaven and i've seen him in concert more than a couple of times. yet, i was still anxious for this release. it'd been so long since he's released an album of all-new, non-holiday music. who knew what direction it'd take? as it turns out, this is more than i could have even hoped for. it's beautiful, moving and dynamic. undoubtedly some of the best lyrics he's written, with amazing melodies and accompaniment. it's just perfect. 'wild angels' nearly brought me to tears and i can't tell you why. marty's talent is a gift to the world and he's so gracious to share it. great release. can't wait to see the show later this month.

martin is amazing! but shame on itunes...

the album is fantasitc, as ecpected. martin's first studio (non-christmas) album in a few years has been anticipated by all of his fans, and "Seeds" doesnt dissapoint one bit! but itunes screwed up in the titling of the disc. the live track at the end of the album isnt "glory bound" its "diggin me". its a great version of the song, but isnt what people think they bought unfortunately. download the album anyway though, its freakin awesome! AND... go see martin in concert! you havent lived as a marty fan until you have!

As good as it gets...Martin Sexton.

Sexton shines and surprises. I have yet to find an artist whose work has reached as deep into my appreciation of music as Martin Sexton's. Track after track I am always amazed at the hidden nuance in this guys repertoire. Jazz, Blues, Folk, Country, Rock, the guy does it all - often in any given track. Without fail, I can play his music to a green-ear and people will claim "there is no way that is the same guy singing all those songs." His diversity gives one the impression that he is possessed by every Music-Great from the last five decades. His voice is beyond inspiring. I’d give it up to intimidating. Why this guy isn't played on every respectable radio station both sides of the Mississippi is more than a mystery, it borders on travesty. I would indulge in sharing my favorite tracks, but there are too many to mention. If you are looking for originality in music and an artist whom never lets you down, you have come to the right place. Start with “Black Sheep” and you will be in a perpetual buying spree for everything this true artist has ever touched. "Seeds" is no exception. Do yourself a favor and meet Martin Sexton by listening to his work. I have known no better driving partner. He makes even the longest rides too short. Thank you, Martin.

Martin Sexton was one of the most talked-about arrivals on the "new folk" acoustic music scene. The guitarist, singer, and songwriter has an amazing vocal range and makes effective use of it on his recordings and in his live shows. Unlike so many other contemporary singer/songwriters, his vocal style can be described as truly soulful, combining the best qualities of singers like Van Morrison, Al Green, Aaron Neville, and Otis Redding. Sexton, a self-taught guitarist and singer, was raised in a family...
