I love to listen, play, create and dance to music. – Music makes me feel happy, sad, passionate, angry and strong. It will take me back through my past to people I have loved or places I have been. It will connect me to people from all around the world. To friends as well as the icons of music.
Why is it so powerful, and where does this all come from?
So I was thinking....about the very first music we all hear. As we lie in our Mother’s womb, we hear her heartbeat and we are gently rocked to her music - the rhythm of her life………………………Yes we hear music before we are even born.
Martin Valins was hooked by the sound of the Beatles as a teenager living in London UK. As a singer/songwriter Martin creates a musical landscape capturing that sixties sound but updated to a more eclectic and baroque mix of folk and alternative rock.
He toured extensively in London during the 1970's and after an absence he returned to the music scene in 2015. Now living in rural Pennsylvania USA Martin has recorded five albums. Each has been widely acclaimed. His latest album Rosecroft Avenue was released in January 2018. You can hear all of his songs on this web site at www.martinvalinsmusic.com and at Spotify.
