Jeffrey Martin

Folk, Americana
Location: Portland

After Jeffrey Martin released 2014’s Dogs In The Daylight, the Portland Mercury posited that he “might be the best songwriter in Portland.” No Depression called the record “as close to a masterpiece as a folk album from an emerging singer-songwriter can get.” One Go Around is the long-awaited follow-up to that record. These are stories of an America left behind, of working-class people struggling to keep their heads above rising waters, of people trying to find love in a time of heartlessness. The stories hit hard, because we know we may not be far from them ourselves in this time of uncertainty. For fans of Josh Ritter, Joe Pug and Gregory Alan Isakov, One Go Around is out now on vinyl, CD and digital formats via Fluff & Gravy Records.
