About Soundhouse: Martin Harley and Daniel Kimbro

Soundhouse Residency at the Traverse Theatre

Martin Harley is a supremely talented acoustic roots and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation.

The new studio album Static In The Wires was released in February 2017, it was produced by Martin and Daniel Kimbro in Nashville. It follows the critically acclaimed Live At Southern Ground. A ‘Spellbinding 50 minutes’ as The Observer put it.

It is Martin’s 7th album to date and the second to feature Daniel Kimbro as well as 14-time Grammy-winner Jerry Douglas (Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Dolly Parton), Derek Mixon (Chris Stapleton, Sam Lewis) and Micah Hulsher (Alabama Shakes). The album was tracked live at Wow & Flutter Studios in East Nashville over four days. Engineered and mixed by analogue guru Joe V McMahan making use of every corner of the space. The drums sounded great in the kitchen and if you listen carefully you can hear the freight trains rolling past.

Martin Harley and Daniel Kimbro met through a mutual friend Sam Lewis at Hippie Jack’s music festival in Crawford Tennessee. After a brief backstage rehearsal, the two took to the stage for an hour of largely improvised music. A few weeks later they were cutting a record at Zac Brown’s iconic Southern Ground studios. Their live shows seek to bring aspects of blues, Americana and folk to the table. Martin plays a 100 year Weissenborn (Hawaiian acoustic lap guitar), Daniel plucks beats, scratches and bows his double bass to create and an unexpected array of textures and sounds.
