About Me

Playing traditional Spanish guitar at a private functionMartyn holding an acoustic guitarMartyn playing electric guitar at an evening event


I started playing guitar from the age of fifteen in my home town of Horsham, West Sussex.

Today I’m based in Glasgow and sing and play electric and acoustic guitars to deliver an extensive repertoire of music that includes rock and pop songs from the 1950s to the present as well as traditional and classical pieces.

Depending on the client’s requirements, I can perform as a solo musician or play and sing over high-quality, professionally-recorded drum and bass backing tracks to provide a ‘full band’ sound.

As a music tutor I provide guitar lessons to students at all ability levels.
