The video for Ryan Martin’s new single “All The Good Men” feels almost voyeuristic. As we follow the lazy meandering of the camera eye as it takes us to the various stations in a house where the singer-songwriter and his crack backing band are recording a take on this beautiful slice of Americana. We’re quite happy to be there as it’s happening but a little worried that we’re intruding on something very personal.
That’s the feeling that comes out of much of Martin’s work, particularly his latest album Gimme Some Light (out on June 29 via High Moon Records). It’s an intense listen, like adjusting one’s eyes to a bright light. You wince at his more deeply autobiographical expressions but slowly come to settle into the warm glow of his sharp vision and open armed honesty.
Martin is gearing up to hit the road for a good long stretch to support Gimme Some Light. Be sure to check out the tour dates below.
