Martin Sexton: Sugarcoating

MARTIN SEXTON TO RELEASE SUGARCOATING APRIL 6

Martin Sexton
Sugarcoating, Martin Sexton's new album due out April 6 finds the one-of-a-kind artist doing what he does best: locating larger truths within specific details of the life he's living. "I write from personal experience — my own hang-ups and quirks, good times and bad times. That keeps it real."

The Syracuse-born artist tracked Sugarcoating live off the floor in seven days with a remarkably cohesive studio band composed of what Sexton describes as "amazing players, the best you could find."

"Each song is so stylistically different from the next," adds Sexton. "I've always preferred records that range, sort of like the White Album, from 'Black Bird' to 'Helter Skelter.' At one time, industry types tried to convince me to stick with one genre, but it was like wearing a suit that didn't fit."

He goes on to say, "I recorded this album with no rehearsals, no pre-production, using all vintage gear from what went into the mics to what came out on the analog tape... I like making records like the old jazz guys did — they just showed up and worked it out."
