Carleton Martin had a difficult early life, but his songs focus on positivity and hope. He believes that life is a continuous learning process, and he takes this approach to his music too. Each completed song is a stepping stone to his next, and he is always evolving as a songwriter. He is also looking for collaborators, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you are a musician or songwriter.
Carleton began his career as a music enthusiast who loved attending concerts. He went to see performers in all genres, but his primary influences were Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and James Brown. He began playing bass and co-writing songs with other musicians. As an audiophile, he realized he couldn't get the sound he wanted with cheap equipment, so he invested in high-end gear and a Kramer XL-8 bass. However, he never lost the authenticity and substance of his early work. The only way to understand his music is to listen to it for yourself.
