Heartland balladeer Dave Martin describes his work as “95% autobiographical”, a statement attested to by his narratives about carefree exploits, comical two-bit criminals, and quieter reflections that appraise his place among his midwestern surroundings.
A University of Iowa Journalism graduate who is etching a songwriting sensibility that lies at the wry musical crossroads somewhere near where Jimmy Buffett and Greg Brown meet, Martin puts his journalistic skills to good use to tell stories that alternately poke fun at and thoughtfully regard the human condition; a soft, warm touch consistently ensured.
