Chris Martin Music


I'm an amateur singer-songwriter and enjoy writing and playing my own songs most. I play acoustic guitar and the harmonica. My style of music is Contemporary Folk and Singer-Songwriter. The decade of music that most influenced my music taste is the 70's. Most influenced by artists such Neil Young, CSN, and Bread. I like to write songs from the heart. I want to express how I feel about past experiences, about current events, and just about anything else that really moves me in some meaningful way. I hope that you "feel" what my songs are about too when you listen to them. Music will always be a hobby for me. Luckily, I don't have higher aspirations. I'll leave that to the REALLY talented folks! ;-) Note: There is so much great music by so many folks on Drooble I have yet to find a good way of listening to everyone's music with the little time I have to do it in. I REALLY do appreciate it when anyone listens to my music as I am sure your life is busy too. Thanks again!







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music moves me and brings me to another place. Be it a happy song or sad song, I love music that moves me deeply.

What is your music dream?

I would love to have a song covered by a well known artist. That would be a dream come true. Not sure I write songs well enough for that though.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

John Lennon answered this best.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Everything I Own - Bread

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Neil Young, CSN, CSNY, Pink Floyd, Damien Rice, Elton John.

What inspires you to make music?

I love writing songs about things that move me or have moved me deeply at some time in my life - past and recent events. It is a way to express myself and my feelings. I mostly play and write only original music.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

I hope the listener feels what I am singing about. I want to move people with my music and lyrics. I have always been drawn to these kinds of songs.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Only done it once. Scared, but once I started, it was a wonderful experience. I should do this more often.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Play and write from your heart. Maybe the rest of your dreams, be it large or small, may happen. I think musicians do not earn enough money from streaming services. Why do they get to use our art to make so much money. This seems wrong to me. it’s OUR art.

What do you think of Drooble?

wonderful place. i love it already. The community is very supportive and I feel motivated to write and share more music once again. thanks everyone!!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The recording process. Far too difficult to get right. I do my best but never feel that it is recorded well enough. I do my best.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Somewhat. Occasional concerts.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Wish I knew. I’m not sure my music is good enough to worry much about it though. I appreciate every listen and comment I receive very much. I don’t know what the secret sauce is.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Me (LOL), Sean Atkins, Mark Stanley, Sonnet Cottage
