PICK OF THE WEEK: Martin Sexton – Thursday, April 26th – The Boulder Theater, Boulder, CO

Why You Should Go: Hailing from Syracuse New York, Martin Sexton got his start busking in the T stations of Boston. His soulful songs are playful and moving and his energy and stage presence are unequaled. While Sexton often performs solo or with only a drummer accompanying him, this time out, word is, he is travelling with a full backing band. It is a chance for fans to see Sexton in a way they may never have before and it is a great opportunity to be introduced to a true musical innovator.

Sexton’s new CD Seeds was recorded in a cabin in Maine during the fall of 2006 and as is often the case Sexton played all instruments and sang all of the vocal parts. That gospel choir you hear is in fact Sexton himself pushing the limits of this falsetto.

Sexton’s unique vocal ability are complimented by his unique guitar talents. He utilizes effects and looping pedals to create a sound that layered and complicated while staying true to his acoustic roots. He is a master performer and rarely dissapoints.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
