Having created a deep impression on the acoustic blues roots and Americana scene with his last two Nashville recorded albums, Harley’s gritty electric album ‘Roll With The Punches’, recorded in a remote chapel deep in the wilds of Pembrokeshire, takes country
blues riffs to the electric bottleneck slide guitar and serves them with sweet vocal harmonies. It features some of the UK’s musicians including Rex Horan on Bass, Harry Harding on drums and Jonny Henderson on Hammond organ. 

This year Martin is nominated as Acoustic Blues Artist of the year and Instrumentalist of the year at the UK Blues Awards as well as Instrumentalist of the Year at the Americana Music Association UK Awards.
