Martin Sexton sounds inspired and refreshed on Fall Like Rain. His sophisticated pop songs reflect cautious optimism about the world at large (“One Voice Together,” the title track) and contentment with his life (“Happy Anniversary”). “Burlington” leads listeners on a vividly detailed journey of New England while charting a relationship's history. His voice, remarkably versatile in range and timbre, is as strong as ever. He smoothly slips from a warm soulful croon to a spine-tingling falsetto with ease, as his nimble melodies grab instantly. His superb voice tends to overshadow his instrumental skill, but his guitar work is excellent throughout as well. The jazzy cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” fits the overall theme of unity and understanding; in many ways the track is a companion to the gospel-tinged social commentary of “One Voice Together.” The only complaint with Fall Like Rain is that it’s just a five-track EP. But the songs are good enough to tide fans over until Sexton’s next full-length.
Just saw him live in Asheville last night
This music is amazing. And seeing him live was a shocking, mind blowing experience. His recorded music is great but you can't fathom how talented he is until you see him in person. The voice is out of this world amazing. Falsetto to bass, scat, gregorian chant, Indian mystic chant, it's all mixed in. I heard a little Aaron Neville and Van Morrison in the voice. It's truly amazing. And his instrumental ability is that of a maestro. The lyrics and music speak to vulnerability and our times, and also hope. This guy is a super genius. Go see him. Listen to this music. It will tell you stories and lift you up. Best solo act I've seen in 40 years.
A soulful musician
Had the privilege to hear Martin perform at the Clearwater Festival at Croton Point Park yesterday. As I sat on the grassy knoll unable to actually see him his voice resonated so magnificently I was moved to tears as his rich and soulful voice went to my core.
Truly an "old soul" that touches your emotional center. He is true musician gifted and blessed by the LORD above.
Martin is truly the man. Each new album shows his musical and personal growth. Thank you so much for the music you make
