BIOGRAPHY
Anglo/Australian Andy Martin resides in Germany but his music lives an international life of its own. His success has come with ROCKIN´ ON THE AIRWAVES through the London internet station www.AiiRadio.net where the track was twice listener voted number one in late 2004. A sound-clip is permanently on AiiR´s website & the song is in the station´s Hall Of Fame. This track is from his Number 1 CD album & a second track, WATERFRONT STREET also hit number number one for him at AiiRadio. On February 10th 2005, the day before the CD´s official launch, a 3rd single from the CD (STAY - a duet featuring Hollie Bourne) also went to number one, virtually guaranteeing that this album has made some form of musical history in the "independently released" retail sector

A hot CD review by Peter Sarstedt* (writer of WHERE DO YOU GO TO MY LOVELY) was followed by radio playlisting on many FM stations in the Netherlands & ROCKIN´ ON THE AIRWAVES being featured on Olon Mega Top 50, a radio promotional compilation. The rock classic power ballad CAN´T LOVE NO MORE is off the INTERVALS CD & is available through the CDbaby catalogue. Registered with Soundscan, INTERVALS is Andy´s latest CD & complete with UPC barcode, is a ready & definite winner to hit the shop shelves
