One of the most talked about Irish artists in a generation and likened by many to the legendary Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher, Belfast-raised Dom Martin brings his full-band electric show to his fast-growing UK fanbase.
Dom has been nominated for three awards at this year’s UK Blues Awards including “Blues Vocalist of the Year”, “Blues Artist of the Year”, and “Blues Instrumentalist of the Year”.
The 32-year-old musician was brought up in the community driven streets of Northern Ireland and makes no secret of his early struggles with drugs and alcohol, frequently referencing this during his very personal and intimate solo shows.
With five European and UK Blues Awards under his belt since 2019, he has attracted attention from Joe Bonamassa, featuring regularly on his Spotify playlists and gaining a coveted invitation to play as a band on the 3rd annual Keeping the Blues Alive Mediterranean Cruise from 17-22 August 2023 alongside Blackberry Smoke and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, and many more blues artists.
The UK Blues Awards 2022 winner of the “Blues Acoustic Artist Of The Year” award and “Best Instrumentalist of the Year” award says, “I can’t wait to see my UK and Irish fans again with my new album show. I’m really excited about this one!”
