Martin Harley will Roll With The Punches on his birthday

Martin Harley announces forthcoming album Roll With The Punches and Tour Dates

Martin Harley and band definitely has something to say, with the positive sound on the first single and Title track from his forthcoming album, Roll with the Punches. The single is out today Friday 2nd August, as we wish Martin a very Happy Birthday as you watch the video.

‘The single “Roll with the Punches” is inspired by the notion that a positive mindset can help people deal with life’s problems, however big all small’. Martin Reports ‘It urges us to not get dragged down by other peoples judgements, to have strength and take pride in our own journey’.

Bluesdoodles, loves the deep groove and the capturing in the video the pure joy in recording the title track. The energy of the song and the inter-action of musicians adds layers of tonal depth to the magical combination of Martins’ voice and wonderful guitar playing. This single is a winning ambassador to sell the album to Martin Harley fans and beyond. The addition of the band adds textural interest without losing the essence of Martin’s playing. Roll With The Punches is a winner!

The video captures the power of acoustic blues, as this more electric sound with a band gathered around his powerful vocals and stunning guitar playing. This is blues with a gritty tone, recorded analogue recorded in a remote chapel deep in the wilds of Pembrokeshire. The title track is an enticing taster which promises to feature Harley’s trademark fine songwriting, with county blues riffs and electric bottleneck slide guitar aplenty, served with sweet vocal harmonies over the driving rhythms of co-producer and drummer Harry Harding (Yola Carter/William the Conquerer), and Award-winning Australian bassist Rex Horan (Eric Clapton, Van Morrison & Laura Marling), with Hammond maestro Jonny Henderson (Robyn Ford/Matt Schofield) adding extra sparkle on 6 of the tracks.
