Gregg Martinez’s music is a blend of blues, R&B and swamp pop music he describes as “bayou blues and Creole soul”— he was born and raised and still lives in the Cajun country of south Louisiana—where he began singing in church at the age of eight. Ten years later, he was singing professionally. His powerhouse voice, which has been compared to Sam Cooke and Luther Vandross, took him from the bars and nightclubs of the bayou country to some of the finest resorts, casinos and clubs throughout the nation. He has twice been nominated for Best Male Vocalist by OFFBEAT Magazine – the only one outside of New Orleans to ever receive a nod in this category. Released in December 2015, 10 tracks.
