Album Notes
Martin Paris is a contemporary acoustic finger style guitarist. Drawing on inspiration from California’s pristine wine country, under layered by a strong faith and family, Martin brings his versatile array of original material and adds his unique style to some familiar favorites. His music takes you on an instrumental journey by blending pop, rock, folk, blues and ballads. Listeners have and fans have called the music catchy, toe-tapping, beautiful and profoundly thought provoking.
"One Acoustic Christmas" is classic Martin Paris. His style is unmistakable and beautiful. Many of the songs on this album will make you feel nostalgic while others will feel somewhat like a lullaby. His ability to make one guitar sound like two is a true testament to his songwriting abilities even with these classics as he has taken them and added his own flavor to many.
Currently he has four projects available, "Acoustically Speaking", "Guitarist Off The Vine" and "Turning Point" released on Solid Air Records, a Grammy award winning label. And now "One Acoustic Christmas", a new independent release for 2017.
His performances include the Cuesta Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo, a repeated featured artist for the Lazy Locals Concert series at Castoro Cellars, and countless appearances at over 80 area wineries and venues.
Martin has also opened concerts for Grammy winning guitarist Laurence Juber, Peppino D’Agostino and singer songwriter Karla Bonoff. He has also performed on KCBX radio and KSBY television in San Luis Obispo.
Minor 7th Review: "One Acoustic Christmas" 2017 This is the sixth solo guitar release from Martin Paris, who performs extensively around Northern California’s wine country. Although Christmas albums are somewhat of a staple and perhaps a cliché for solo guitarists, this recording has much to recommend it. First, the audio quality is beautiful – I fell in love with the guitarist’s tone after listening with earbuds. Secondly, he’s an able arranger, creating variations in different registers of the guitar and adding tasteful chordal interludes. Paris performs the entire set on steel string guitar, utilizing a well-developed fingerstyle technique. Highlights include the album’s opener, "Deck the Halls," "The First Noel," "What Child is This?," and "Joy to the World." On "Silent Night," Paris employs the aforementioned arranging devices for one of the most successful pieces in the set. This disc will reward serious as well as casual listening and undoubtedly will sell well at Paris’s gigs. © Patrick Ragains
