Through his road worn song writing style he explores hopes and fears for fast changing times. Slide guitar, as always is at the root of Martins sound, mirroring his whisky soaked northern breeze vocals. With fantastic reviews still coming in for the new album ‘Roll With The Punches’ things are looking good for the wandering bluesman. 

If success can be measured by a growing global demand to attend Martin's dynamic live performances, then perhaps his touring schedule is proof of that. He recently played to a full house at the Union Chapel in Islington and has appeared at Edmonton, Vancouver, Canmore and Calgary folk festivals in Canada; UK Festivals Glastonbury, Bestival, Beautiful days; numerous European and US tours and events including the AMAs, The Bluebird in Nashville and Tønder in Denmark. Total Guitar Magazine ranked him #16 in the World's greatest acoustic guitarist poll and he was nominated as Instrumentalist of the Year at the Americana music awards 2019.

    Folk-Blues

    In 2019 British guitarist and songwriter Martin Harley is making a change. Having created a deep impression on the acoustic blues roots and Americana scene with his last two Nashville recorded albums, his highly anticipated new record finds a new and exciting sound. An Intimate and gritty analogue album, recorded in a remote chapel deep in the wilds of Pembrokeshire. Taking country blues riffs to the electric bottleneck slide guitar, served with sweet vocal harmonies and the driving rhythms of co-producer and drummer Harry Harding (Yola Carter/William the Conqueror).

    Through his road worn song writing style this record explores hopes and fears for fast changing times, offering gospel like comfort and consolation. The song ‘Roll with the Punches’ implores the listener not to get dragged down when challenges seem unsurmountable. ‘Coming Home’ asks questions beyond the end of life and explores freedom from worldly desires.
