Martin Kerr has been building his career from the streets, one passer-by at a time, and now has following of thousands.
In the past year he sold out two nights at the 1700-seat Winspear Centre, opened for Sarah McLachlan at a 20,000-seat stadium, and saw his new album reach #2 on the iTunes album chart in Canada.
Often compared to James Taylor, John Denver and Jason Mraz, Martin’s anthemic modern-folk connects with listeners of all ages. With a growing list of major festival appearances, his brilliant storytelling and soaring voice are captivating audiences across North America and beyond.
While travelling in China as an 18-year-old, Martin briefly met a Canadian girl, who then wooed him from afar with poems and mixtapes, and sent him a plane ticket to Edmonton. They're now married with 3 children. The unique story of their long-distance courtship often forms a charming and hilarious part of his live show.
"Martin Kerr..what a voice! Pristine, measured and beautiful." - Sarah McLachlan
"You had me in tears" - Bruce Cockburn
