Martin Harley is a supremely talented acoustic roots and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation, and we welcome him to Band on the Wall to celebrate new studio album ‘Static In The Wires’. Recorded in Nashville, it follows the critically acclaimed ‘Live At Southern Ground’. It is Martin’s seventh album to date and the second to feature Daniel Kimbro as well as 14-time Grammy-winner Jerry Douglas (Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Dolly Parton), Derek Mixon (Chris Stapleton, Sam Lewis) and Micah Hulsher (Alabama Shakes).
Harley and Kimbro met through a mutual friend Sam Lewis at Hippie Jack’s music festival in Crawford Tennessee. After a brief backstage rehearsal, the two took to the stage for an hour of largely improvised music. A few weeks later they were cutting a record at Zac Brown’s iconic Southern Ground studios. Their live shows seek to bring aspects of blues, Americana and folk to the table. Martin plays a 100 year Weissenborn (Hawaiian acoustic lap guitar), Daniel plucks beats, scratches and bows his double bass to create and an unexpected array of textures and sounds.
