“The real thing, people.” -Billboard
In 2017 American singer-songwriter Martin Sexton extends touring in support of his ninth studio release Mixtape of the Open Road. The Wall Street Journal and CMT premiered tracks from the album that since garnered much critical acclaim. “Outstanding taste in songwriting as well as a soul-marinated voice.” -Rollingstone
Syracuse native Sexton got his start singing in the streets and subways of Boston in the early 90’s. Still fiercely independent and headlining venues from The Fillmore to Carnegie Hall, he has influenced a generation of contemporary artists. His songs have appeared in television series such as Scrubs, Parenthood, Masters of Sex and in numerous films, though it’s his incendiary live show, honest lyrics, and vocal prowess that keep fans coming back for more.
Described as, “one of the most ground-breaking musical experiences one might just have in a lifetime” by Jonathan Frahm at Yahoo Voices, The Accidentals are just getting started.
From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over a seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.
After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats such as; Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, SHEL, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Solee, Seth Glier, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, and more.
They scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux (Glassnote Records), and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble while touring the US extensively.
