14-string guitarist Felix Martin has announced a new headlining tour set to begin on February 5th in Los Angeles. The tour will feature support from Barishi (2/5 – 3/2) as well as Stinking Lizaveta and Dyse (3/3 – 3/20). If you haven’t heard Martin’s debut studio album The Scenic Album and enjoy instrumental prog/jazz/metal check out the video below! His talent is impressive as not only is there a lot of technical ability on display but these songs are more than just technical showmanship and have some real hooks as well. I’m planning on catching this tour when it comes through, and am excited to have the chance to see what he can do in person!

Felix Martin Tour

Combining a unique fusion of progressive metal and jazz with impactful world and funk influences, FELIX MARTIN is excited to share the news of his upcoming headlining tour throughout North America! Starting on February 5 in Los Angeles, the six week trek will span across the US including three appearances at the annual prestigious music festival South by Southwest (SXSW). Joining MARTIN on the first leg of the journey will be Vermont’s Barishi (appearing 2/5 – 3/2), while the latter half will be supported by Philadelphia’s Stinking Lizaveta and German noise rockers Dyse.

Having spent the last year appearing opening for legendary guitarist Steve Vai as well as being featured on several festivals including Progressive Nation At Sea ( Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Devin Townsend), Euroblast (Misery Signals, Vildhartja), NAMM, Baja Prog and Mammoth Fest, MARTIN will continue to promote his debut studio effort, “The Scenic Album”.

Featuring acclaimed drummer Marco Minnemann (Necrophagist, Joe Satriani, The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson) and bassist Nathan Navarro complimenting MARTIN’s self-invented 14-string guitarwork , the album consists of “fast rhythms, intricate melodies, and catchy riffs…a must have for all music fans” (Age of Metal). You can watch MARTIN playthrough several tracks from the album and view life footage from recent performances on his official YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/felixmartine

Prior to the upcoming tour, MARTIN will be seen featured at the annual National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) conference in Anaheim, Calif. later this month performing at the outdoor center stage. MARTIN is currently endorsed by Seymour Duncan and Ernie Ball. For more information, please visit www.felixmartin.net.
