After the breakup of the popular and long lasting Canadian band Tea Party I am sure fans wondered if we would ever hear music from lead singer/guitarist/song writer Jeff Martin again. Well, have no fear, the man has released solo music.
Upon first glance at Mr. Martin you might simply write him off as another Jim Morrison wannabe (he looks strikingly like Morrison), but that would be a mistake. Frustrated by what he felt was the ‘commercialization’ of Tea Party music, Martin has released music which goes back to his roots. The music on his first solo release, Exile and the Kingdom, is full of pure rock sounds, spirituality, and Martin’s unique sounding smoky voice. Martin’s talent lies in his ability to set up a mood and tell a story through his music.
There is still plenty of mysticism, history and philosophy in the lyrics of the songs as Jeff Martin likes to show that he is a well read human being. Whatever your opinion is of that there is no denying that the man definitely knows how to construct a song. The potential intricacies of music are not beyond Jeff Martin.
