DAVID MARTINEZ – DECEMBER TEXAS MUSIC WATER MUSICIAN OF THE MONTH There’s a sound swelling in Corpus Christi that is shaking the walls of venues from Austin all the way up the West Coast. This sound belongs to our December Texas Music Water Musician of the Month, David Martinez. Martinez is winning accolades in L.A., showcasing at SXSW, and creating albums with a renowned musician and producer that are creating buzz in the U.K. Martinez felt the influence of music at a very young age. His father, a music major and veritable one-man-band, introduced him to all facets of instruments, from drums to keyboard and even vocals. “Growing up, music was pretty much thrown at me. It was always something that I had a passion and obsession with,” says Martinez. With heavy influence from Ace FrehleySlash and Stevie Ray Vaughan, he chose to focus his talents on guitar. He began writing songs at the age of 15, building on the fundamentals of music theory that he learned early on. After honing his skills in jam sessions during high school and playing shows throughout college, he was urged by friends to take it to the next level. In 2006, Martinez compiled a demo, raised some money, and was ready to hit the road. Together with musicians Jimmy Wilden and Hope Cassidy, he toured through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and on into California. “It was kind of like jumping into the fire. We did things the hard way, but it was such a great tour. I got to play places that I never imagined I would be able to.” However, the greatest experience of the tour didn’t happen on a stage, but in a deli. That’s where Martinez met famed producer Leroy Miller. A year later, Martinez flew back to L.A. and began recording his first album at Leroy Miller’s Hollywood Studio. “It was a challenge. He’s not a ‘yes man’ by any means. He pushed me to the limit and made me do things that I never thought I’d be able to do.”  Since then, Martinez has toured across the country playing shows from New York to Seattle and at legendary places such as the Viper Room in West Hollywood. He is a regular showcase at SXSW and was praised during the Land Shark Battle of the Bands. Currently, Martinez is working with Leroy on a new album, One More Time, which is set to be released on December 11th. “As much as I love my first album, I didn’t want to make the same thing. The new album has a lot of different vibes in it.” Incorporating influences from modern rock to reggae to punk rock anthems, One More Time has something to appeal to all your music preferences. Its hit single, I Wanna Know, is receiving rave reviews and recently won ‘Top Indie Song’ of the summer in LA. When asked about Texas Music Water, Martinez says, “Texas is like its own country. We have our own music and now we have our own water. As soon as I heard about it I wanted to be involved. Especially since it helps out musicians.” We couldn’t be happier to have David Martinez involved and that’s why he is our Texas Music Water Musician of the Month.   ‘One More Time’ will be available on iTunes, Amazon & CDBaby on December 11th ” - Leigh of Texas Music Water

Artist Connection Podcast

This is Corpus Christi, Texas' David Martinez. A Math and Technology teacher by trade, a musician by desire. At age 15 he started belting out Hendrix and Zeppelin on his first guitar, soon after he got some friends together and started writing music. Sounds like music from a template, but his work sure isn't. Along with drummer & percussionist Johnny Ramos and new bassist Johnny Mitchell, this trio to be known as the David Martinez Band has something many bands wish they had: a genre-crossover sound you'll never get tired of. Some southern rock, some classic rock, some soul and country, lots of storytelling from a very talented singer with excellent songwriting talents to boot. Lyrics placed precisely into instruments that don't overwhelm, taking advantage of Martinez' many influences. Aided in production along the way by L.A.'s awesome Leroy, the band's debut studio album is due for release on January 20th. The music this trio creates is just a treat to listen to, doesn't matter if it's at your local club or on your iPod, driving the Gulf Coast or sitting around a knotted bar table at Lefty's, with friends or by yourself. Their music will keep you in good company. Without a doubt, a band to keep an ear out for. Highly recommended.” - Chris
