Martin Sexton Plays At Songbirds Jan. 18

Friday, December 3, 2021

Singer and songwriter Martin Sexton is hitting the road in support of his latest EP, 2020 Vision, and will be in Chattanooga at Songbirds on Jan. 18.

It’s his first new release in six years since his critically acclaimed album Mixtape of the Open Road.

The EP is a four-song collection that snapshots moments of clarity during the past year and beyond.

Review for 2020 Vision:

2020 Vision is a poetically emotive and an elegantly evocative pandemic scrapbook. In one song, he’s building a treehouse with his son. In another song, he’s crossing America and seeing the beauty in people rising through adversity and loving each other.

The recordings were tracked virtually during lockdown and produced by three-time Grammy-nominee John Alagia (John Mayer, Paul Simon, Lukas Nelson).
