Martyn Scott is a singer songwriter whose retro indie, influenced by 60s pop, jazz guitar greats and romantic classical composers, is a technicolour mix of meticulously crafted melodies, intricate guitar work and lush, thoughtful instrumentation.
Martyn was born in Rotherham, South Yorkshire and started playing Rock n Roll in working men’s clubs aged 17 and progressed to touring up and down the country with bands, one of which got the opportunity to support The Bootleg Beatles at the Echo Arena in Liverpool in front of an audience of 9,000. Originally and primarily a guitarist, Martyn is also a skilled multi-instrumentalist who writes, sings and performs everything on his recordings.
His song writing, influenced by The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Oasis, The Smiths, The Stone Roses and 90’s Brit Pop, always places “the song” at the heart of it all. Martyn puts the song first, saying that “if it doesn’t stand up on its own, sung with just an acoustic guitar, then it’s not worth trying to prop it up through production. It will always fall short.”
Lockdown provided Martyn with time to write, record and self-release “Maybe Just Maybe”, his debut album as a truly independent solo artist. Its crunchy and driven pop rock and honest lyrics won the support of critics.
