Singer / Songwriter & Wandering Troubadour - Paul Martin
Paul performs folk, folk-rock, soft-rock, oldies, and contemporary covers, singing songs from the 1930s through today. He provides a fun and engaging show playing guitar, ukulele, and harmonica. Now as a semi-retired boomer and full-time traveler, he is able to focus more on his passion for music, songwriting, and performing.
As a singer-songwriter, his original heartfelt songs highlight his passion for social justice, equality, and peace. Many include stories from his travels as a full-time RVer, experiences in personal growth, his humanist worldview, the joys and heartaches of love, and the realizations of growing older.
He performs as he travels throughout the western states at restaurants, cafes, house concerts, and private events.
Paul started playing acoustic guitar and singing folk songs as a youngster growing up in Connecticut. Moving to Tucson in the late 90’s, he took classes with the Nashville Songwriters Association, then performing them at local open mics. As part of the boomer generation, he has always enjoyed folk, folk-rock and popular covers from the 60’s and 70’s.
Paul continued to perform while traveling and living in an Airstream for 7 years. He enjoyed singing around campfires, at RV events, and in coffee houses prior to settling back in Tucson in 2014.
There, he formed a number of vocal groups including Burning Mesquite in 2014 with Lisa Darlene Spires, Intangible Trio in 2015 playing ukuleles with Autumn Bree and Stacy Egan, the duo Martin & Bree in 2016 with Autumn Bree, and in 2017 the vocal duo of Paul & Elizabeth with Elizabeth Kronlage.
Today as a wandering troubadour, he performs as he travels throughout the western states, again as a full-time RVer. His songwriting and song repertoire continues to evolve as he performs at venues along the way.
