Nat Martin Band

“…undeniably funky, with harmony vocals and a tight rhythm section much like Steely Dan…Nat Martin’s guitar shines through with some very tasty chops…A winner for sure.

**** Guitar Techniques, August 2011

The Nat Martin Band was first formed back in 2006 and started life as a blues covers band. Initially the band was just a trio with Nat Martin on guitar and vocals along with Marco Meniconi on bass and Owen Martin on drums, but they soon expanded this line up to include Jez Davies on keys. It was at this point that Nat began writing original material for the band, aiming to incorporate the elements of several musical styles that were close to his heart, specifically Blues, Jazz and Funk. Collectively the musicians in the band offer a number of different musical influences including Blues, Jazz, Fusion, Funk, Soul and Classical.

Over the years the band has been gigging extensively, including events for Boogaloo promotions and for London promoter Pete Feenstra. Collectively, the band’s CV contains a number of credits including having worked with Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Thomas Dolby, Bo Diddley, Suzi Quatro, Winston Blissett and many other artists.

The Nat Martin Band has now released its debut album entitled Don’t Lose Your Cool, blending blues with the jazz and funk genres. We feel privileged to have become a part of the MGP Records family.
