Album Notes
Musical artist MINSTREL MARTIN (Philip Martin Stuebe) is a GMA nominated folk singer-songwriter. His music is heartfelt and poetic – marked by carefully crafted lyrics woven with stirring vocals, carried along by organic instrumentation. Listeners often compare his musical style to artists like City and Colour, Mumford and Sons, and The Rend Collective.

Minstrel Martin’s freshman EP – the nautically-themed “BOW & RUDDER” – launched in the Spring of 2016, and was nominated for “FOLK ALBUM OF THE YEAR” in the 2016 GMA Covenant Awards.

His musical influences include the aforementioned as well as an array of other artists, such as: The Oh Hellos, Gregory Alan Isakov, Roo Panes, Josh Garrels, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, All Sons and Daughters, Coldplay (old), Bon Iver, Avalanche City, Iron & Wine, Jon Foreman, Ray LaMontagne, Seabird, The Paper Kites, The Lumineers, and Of Monsters and Men.

The Oregon-born artist now makes his home in Victoria, BC, where, when not writing songs, he enjoys gourmet espresso and evening strolls with his wife on the breakwater.


For me, music is the outward expression of my inner life. Like, when I have no words that can do justice to the way I’m feeling and what I’m going through, music is there. It’s another language. A heavenly language by which I can express my greatest frustrations, pains, and longings. And when I do that, an amazing thing happens: somehow, even though it really doesn’t make any sense at all, I can be still. My soul is quieted as I pour out my heart to God with raw authenticity.

Music must be honest. Otherwise, I would say, it’s not true music.

To speak for my own musical journey, there have been many times when I would just settle. As soon as I had some chords and lyrics that worked together, I’d pat myself on the back and run with it. But in recent years I’ve learned to dig deeper. To travel further into the recesses of my soul and let out emotions and thoughts – even painful ones – through music. Not only that, but to search for the most potent and poetic words to describe the way I feel inside.

Then the beautiful comes.

In wrestling with the reconciliation of faith and life, I am always brought back to this quiet joy that I find only in God’s love. Somehow, when I honestly communicate all my hang-ups and apprehensions to Him, I am reminded of His grace and goodness. And even though my circumstances don’t just instantly get better, inside I have peace. I know deep down that in the end it’s all gonna work out.

– Philip Martin Stuebe (Minstrel Martin)
