Hailing from Belfast, Ireland… Dom Martin is, in my opinion THE hottest blues artist I’ve heard in MANY years, and if he can get a few breaks, he’s going to the the next big thing in blues. And I haven’t said this about any artist I’ve had on this show, of the 920 something guests I’ve had.
His songwriting is original, and he knows how to make you feel something whether he’s playing electric, acoustic, or slide guitar. Since 2019, Dom’s released a live album and 3 Studio LPs, including his latest album which just came out, called Buried in the Hail. I’ve listened to Dom’s catalog MANY times in the 2 months or so I’ve been familiar with him. He’s got me through MANY workouts, car rides, and walks.
