Singer / Songwriter - PauJoMar (aka: Paul Martin)
Paul Martin is an acoustic solo musician and singer/songwriter based out of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. Playing guitar, ukulele, and harmonica, he sings songs from the 30’s through the 2000’s. Paul provides a fun and engaging program with a variety of oldies, folk, folk-rock, soft-rock, and contemporary popular songs that most people know… and often enjoy singing along to. His performances include some original songs that are passionate and heartfelt. You can relax and listen to oldies, tap your feet to popular cover tunes, dance to a little rock & roll, or sing-along to those memorable songs you know and love. You can always expect an engaging and fun time!
I travel through the western states performing at restaurants, pubs, cafes, coffee houses, and private events. I'm currently on summer tour, traveling from Washington to Wyoming, Utah, and to New Mexico this fall. Catch me this winter in the southwest.
I started playing acoustic guitar and singing folk songs as a youngster growing up in Connecticut. After my college years, my career path varied from Sales Engineer with Honeywell to finance, to computerized office equipment, and fire safety / training. I was a runner, cyclist, hiker, and martial arts student in Judo, Tai Chi, karate and 25 years in Aikido. I retired from software support and corporate training with Intuit (Quickbooks, Quicken, and TurboTax). Retiring as a energetic boomer, and expanding my love for music and performing, I have committed myself to this wonderful musical journey.
I moved to Tucson in the late 90’s and took classes with the Nashville Songwriters Association. That’s where I began performing in public at local coffee houses.
In the early 2000's I traveled throughout the country performing at restaurants, coffee houses and special events. In Tucson I formed a number of vocal groups including Burning Mesquite in 2014, Intangible Trio in 2015, the duo of Martin & Bree in 2016, and in 2017 the vocal duo of Paul & Elizabeth.
Today as a solo acoustic musician, I follow my passion for writing songs, traveling, and evolving my repertoire as I perform at venues in Arizona and throughout the western states.
