A musician from Maui, Hawaii. Drew Martin shares songs & stories from the West Maui Mountains and the valleys that have inspired his music. His sound is a blend of Hawaiian slack key guitar and folk-blues.
While his musical influences are vast, the story of how it all began is simple: Martin starting playing guitar at age 11 when he first developed the urge to learn an instrument. Initially inspired by BB King, he decided he wanted to play at 3 O’Clock Blues. So he bought, “this funky Epiphone acoustic guitar for $80 and hasn’t stopped playing,” for the past 17 years.
