Cleveland, OH native Marty Christian fell in love with the Blues through the local sounds of the great Robert Jr. Lockwood. A guitarist since the age of 12, Marty began a journey in 1992 that led him to form bands in places as diverse as Eastern France and Austin, TX. That Journey would inevitably lead him to the Creole Blues lands of Lafayette, Louisiana when in 2003, Marty began to perform with old school Zydeco master Thomas “Big Hat” Fields.
In 2005, Marty started to present his barebones style of performing soulful acoustic Blues across the South. His first collection of original material, Bluesicana was released in 2006. In 2008, Marty began to work as the guitarist for piano blues legend Henry Gray and the Cats. In 2009, Marty released his second CD, Underground Blues, an acoustic collection of Delta inspired solo originals with two choice duo cuts thrown in for extraspice featuring the blistering harmonica of fellow Henry Gray “Cat” band member, Andy Cornett. Marty continues to perform both solo and as a duo with Cornett around the South and beyond, bringing contented audiences an original sound of acoustic Blues with traditional roots.
