I'm not sure I would have ever discovered Martin Sexton if not for eMusic. I downloaded my first album in July and have since gotten all of them and seen him live twice. The things he does with his voice cannot be described. His music is inspirational, haunting and humorous. And if that's not enough he is an incredible guitar player.

how awesome a Martin Sexton Live show is. His Live Wide Open Album captured it nicely as well as this album. You should own both and play them together because this is more of the same(like having a 3rd Live Wide Open disc) I love hearing him with a drummer (not so much a band) but he is truly in his element here as a solo performer.

They Say All Music Guide

Solo is the second live album in eight years from singer/songwriter Martin Sexton, and in keeping with Sexton’s “less is more” performing style (and as the title would suggest), 15 of the 17 tunes here feature just his voice and guitar. Of course, Sexton has been performing as a solo act (or with just a drummer) long enough that he’s become very comfortable as a one-man band, and Solo manages to sound rich and intimate at the same time. Using scatting or whistling to fill up the spaces his guitar leaves empty and mimicking instrumental solos with his voice, Sexton’s solo performances lack the hollow sound of some acts when they take the stage with just an acoustic guitar for company, and he can generate a potent, funky rhythm with his six-string work — “Happy” is that rare unplugged solo track you could dance to if you were so inclined. But Solo’s best moments also speak of the direct connection between one musician and his audience, and these recordings (culled from tapes of six different shows) preserve not just the sound but the ineffable feel of the man on-stage. Sexton is a savvy showman on Solo, pulling out some unexpected covers (tackling Prince, the Beatles, and Ray Charles among others) along with a stack of his better original compositions, and just as he knows how to work the crowd on-stage, Solo gives his loyal fans a top-notch re-creation of his solo concerts they can relive in their living room. As a bonus, the album also includes two extra tracks with a full band, and a bonus DVD with Sexton playing a 50-minute solo set at a festival in Colorado; this is bound to delight Sexton loyalists and might even convert a few doubters. – Mark Deming
