Chris Martin is an up and coming country artist from the Emerald Coast of Florida, born and raised in Pensacola.
His roots in traditional country music, from George Strait to Keith Whitley, have helped shape his contemporary country music sound. Chris’ easy going manner is completely evident in his smooth vocal style, delivering a uniquely recognizable “blue-eyed soul” meets “Nashville drawl” in his renditions of current country hits as well as original material.
Backed by the “hottest little band in P’Cola”, the Chris Martin Band has made an indelible mark on the local music scene, having achieved some impressive milestones for a band just barely a year old. Not content to follow the typical “bar band” business model, the Chris Martin Band continues to hone their craft at fairs, festivals and concerts in NW Florida and beyond. With a Nashville produced, all original EP released in April, and having shared the stage with American Idol finalist Bo Bice, Charlie Daniels and opening for Rock and Roll legends Lynard Skynard, the future continues to look very bright for this new country artist and his band.
Take a little ride What kinda gone Anywhere with you Drive Sure be cool if you did That ain't my truck Don't happen twice I hold on Hey girl Kiss tomorrow goodbye Mostly Tennessee Cruise Hard to love That's my kinda night The only way I know Rear view Get me some of that Runaway Chillin it Sticks and stones Fool hearted memory Better class of loser The closer you get When she says baby Summer of 69 Outta my head Make me crazy 5150 Drunk on you The one that got away You look good in my shirt If tomorrow never comes Drink a beer It goes like this Everywhere This woman and this man Sawmill road Redneck crazy Boys round here Boys of summer Every rose has it's thorn Southern flame She's country
