“Scott Martin plays guitar like Richard Thompson, sings like James Taylor, and writes songs like Jackson Browne.” — Jaimee Harris

Scott Martin of Austin, Texas is a native of the great Northwest. He’s been a finalist at the Telluride Troubadour Contest, a winner at Songwriter Serenade, a finalist at the Wildflower Performing Songwriter contest, and a Regional Finalist twice at the Kerrville New Folk contest.

Scott’s record “Missing — Songs for the Lost, Loved & Unforgotten” was released in 2018. It features Scott’s superlative fingerstyle playing on James Goodall guitars and 2+ octaves of rich, soulful vocals. The project was produced, mixed and mastered by Mark Hallman at Congress House Studio in Austin. The album features a song cycle about historical missing persons such as Amelia Earhart, DB Cooper, Everett Ruess, Virginia Dare, Percy Fawcett, as well as 16th century “science martyr” Giordano Bruno. Also in the song lineup are several more personal songs about letting go, what might have been, and finding redemption after loss. Listen to samples of the complete album here:
