Combining a unique fusion of progressive metal and jazz with impactful world and funk influences, FELIX MARTIN is excited to share the news of his upcoming headlining tour throughout North America! Starting onFebruary 5 in Los Angeles, the six week trek will span across the US including three appearances at the annual prestigious music festival South by Southwest (SXSW). Joining MARTIN on the first leg of the journey will be Vermont’s Barishi (appearing 2/5 – 3/2), while the latter half will be supported by Philadelphia’s Stinking Lizaveta and German noise rockers Dyse.
Having spent the last year appearing opening for legendary guitarist Steve Vai as well as being featured on several festivals including Progressive Nation At Sea ( Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Devin Townsend), Euroblast (Misery Signals, Vildhartja), NAMM, Baja Prog and Mammoth Fest, MARTIN will continue to promote his debut studio effort, “The Scenic Album”.
Featuring acclaimed drummer Marco Minnemann (Necrophagist, Joe Satriani, The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson) and bassist Nathan Navarro complimenting MARTIN’s self-invented 14-string guitarwork , the album consists of “fast rhythms, intricate melodies, and catchy riffs…a must have for all music fans” (Age of Metal). You can watch MARTIN play through several tracks from the album and view life footage from recent performances on his official YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/felixmartine
