Stephen Martin

Stephen Martin has established himself as a uniquely gifted, and intensely spirited jazz saxophonist. Born in Champaign, IL and raised in St. Louis, MO, Martin began playing saxophone at age 10 and thrived in a community with a musically rich tradition, particularly in jazz. He has been recognized early in his career for his excellence in music, most recently being named a finalist for the 2018 Carinthian International Jazz Award.
 
The formal musical training Martin received is highlighted by having completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance while studying under Grammy-Nominated jazz legend Bobby Watson, and world-renowned classical saxophonist Tim Timmons at the Conservatory of Music & Dance at the University of Missouri – Kansas City. He then earned a Master’s Degree in Music studying with the great saxophonist and educator Paul DeMarinis at the private fine arts school in St. Louis, MO, Webster University.
 
Martin has developed a personal sound on saxophone characterized by a relentless energy and adventurous ideas. His music achieves distinct emotions ranging from sensitive and inviting to thunderous and enraged. Martin’s debut album, Vision, was released under his independent artist label SubtleStreet Records on July 27th, 2018. It debuted in the top 40 of the iTunes Jazz Charts, and as an Amazon best-seller. It was also featured as a Top 10 album by a Kansas City artist in 2018.
 
Based in Kansas City, Martin maintains a regular performance schedule, contributing to a thriving, exceptional local music scene as well as performing throughout the country and abroad.”
