With five BBC Radio live sessions prior to a first album release, Dom impressed with his 2018 debut original EP “Easy Way Out” with
BBC presenter Cerys Matthews describing his work as “absolutely wonderful stuff.” His debut album “Spain to Italy” was fully released on 4th December 2019 to critical acclaim and was an IBBA “Pick Of The Month” gaining airplay on around 100 sta- tions globally. The album has had over 176k Spotify Streams to date (June 2021).

Although primarily known as a solo acoustic artist in atmospheric venues, Dom is more than capable of holding a large audience with his mesmerising techniques and strong vocal, he can also be accompanied by a band in larger venues and festivals or when requested.
With Covid -19 dominating 2020/21 and destroying the live music sector, one highlight was Dom and the band headlining the Official Rory Gallagher Online Festival to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his passing in June. The show, compered by Kid Jensen on the Official Rory Gallagher Facebook and YouTube pages has had 93k views.
This unassuming musician is another fine product of the famous Belfast music factory responsible for Sir Van Morrison, Gary Moore, Paul Brady, Brian Kennedy, Foy Vance and many more.
Dom Martin is a man on the move
