DAVID MARTIN Something In Your Eyes Astonish (2007)

David Martin

A very talented young man here as David Martin not only wrote all the music but produces his debut album as well. A good set of backing musicians as well including drummer Manu Katché (Peter Gabriel). Oh and his blond flowing locks will doubtless be a marketer's dream!

But is the music any good? Glad to report it is, being very mellow in style although 'Stand' (reminded me of Blessed Union of Souls - whatever happened to them!) and 'Sing your Song' up the tempo being tow fine pop rock tunes.

Elsewhere Martin puts in a haunting vocal on 'It Must Be' and the title track almost verges into West Coast AOR. Lush production throughout and Martin has a very soft, melodic voice.

A very assured debut release and with airplay friendly tunes David Martin is a name to watch over the coming months.
