Shaun Martin has a natural gift that has been evident since he began playing drums in church at the age of 4. His mother had the vision to arrange piano instruction from Carolyn Campbell and guide him on his path. Now, years later, Shaun has seven Grammys from his work with Kirk Franklin and the gospel powerhouse God’s Property and jazz fusion phenomenon Snarky Puppy. This said you will not find this information in discussion with this gently powerful man because he wears none of this on his sleeve.
Shaun Martin has been playing, creating, and collaborating for most of his life, yet his contributions go much further than just playing. When you move through the projects that Shaun has been a part of you can feel his style and influence; you can sense his presence throughout the compositions. Shaun’s willingness and ability to be a subtle part of each band have allowed him be part of the very foundation.
Shaun's live performances take on a life of their own. They can start with a rollicking New Orleans second line move to a breezy trip through jazz sublime onto a trans-global explosion followed by a funk/go-go party. Music lovers, stay on your toes and get ready.
