Martin Rivas is coming to town-He’s bringing Brendan and Jenna and they are all so excited to perform in Middleburgh on September 17 at 7:30 pm, so mark your calendars!
Martin Rivas is bringing joy back to music. Blending disparate elements such as ’60s soul, improvised sonic experimentation, and garage rock with a distinctly modern folk edge to create a sound that is both instantly inviting and exceptionally deep, his songs practically smile at you from the speakers.
Martin has released a total of six solo albums, and has shared the stage with a wildly varied palette of artists the likes of Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Aimee Mann, Dar Williams, Rosanne Cash, Nicole Atkins, Gov’t Mule, Loudon Wainwright III, Rachel Platten, A Great Big World, Garland Jeffreys, Marshall Crenshaw and many many more on stages in the United States, the UK, Ireland, and continental Europe.
Martin’s latest album, Reliquary, features “Your Heart Will Be Broken Again,” the 2013 Independent Music Award Vox Populi winner for Best Adult-Contemporary Song.
Fatherhood has introduced Martin to his greatest passion of all, and while he is savoring every possible second with his brand-new pal, his seventh album is percolating and near completion. Keep your ears peeled.
Jenna is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but calls NYC her home.
She has toured all over the world and has performed with a variety of well known talented artists such as Oscar Winner Glen Hansard, Amanda Palmer, Lucius, Angela McClusky (Telepop), Nouvelle Vague and many others.
