Jeff Martin (Pier Hotel)
Jeff Martin, the musician, has been labeled everything from "child prodigy", "virtuoso guitarist", "singer with perfect pitch" to "the devil's child", and "an occult reincarnation". Jeff Martin, the producer, is celebrating 20 years since becoming the youngest ever producer of an EMI record (Splendor Solis) back in 1992. Twenty years and almost 4 million record sales later, Jeff Martin's unique life path, musical etymology and output have placed him in a high caliber as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer while garnering acclaim from music industry stalwarts.
Jeff formed the Tea Party with his lifelong friends, Stuart Chatwood and Jeff Burrows in 1990. With a career spanning over 15 years and 8 major-label releases, The Tea Party have successfully gained the attention of fans on a worldwide level, as well as touring a countless number of times throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia.
Jeff has carved out a distinctive and successful career for himself as a solo artist, various other side projects, and as an acclaimed and highly sought after producer. He has a hunger for knowledge of art, history, the esoteric, music and melody, that has led him to live and experience exotic places such as Egypt, Turkey, Prague, Italy, Ireland and now Australia where he calls home.
Following a mammoth year of touring in Canada and Australia performing with The Tea Party to support the 20th Anniversary of their acclaimed album Edges of Twilight, Jeff Martin will return to Victoria for a small run of solo acoustic shows this December.
