Martin Sexton tour to include Bonnaroo and JazzFest

Martin Sexton’s spring and summer tour dates have just been announced and include several highlights: appearances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Bonnaroo, plus a run of dates supporting Dave Matthews Band.

Starting close to home with a New Haven date on April 15, he will headline such key markets as DC 930 Club, New York Nokia Theatre, Chicago Park West, Los Angeles House of Blues, San Francisco The Fillmore, Vancouver Commodore, Boston House of Blues and more.

The New York Times noted that Sexton “jumps beyond standard fare on the strength of his voice, a blue-eyed soul man’s supple instrument . . . his unpretentious heartiness helps him focus on every soul singer’s goal: to amplify the sound of an ordinary heart.” And Rolling Stone adds, “His outstanding taste in songwriting as well as a soul marinated voice that can easily be compared to the likes of a young Steve Winwood or Van Morrison.”

Sexton exclaims, "It's an exciting year: I've got a brand-new record and a new band. I feel strongly about the songs I'm singing and we look forward to hopping on the bus and spreading it around the world."
