Thomas Martinez Biography
native Thomas Martinez describes himself as a "rocker in a country boy's
body" and his rapidly growing network of fans strongly agrees. They flock
to concert halls and many of country music's largest night clubs across the
United States and Canada whenever they see his name in lights.
Martinez is a self-made artist who has a flare for turning any tune into a
heart pounding, foot stomping, guitar drivin' good time. Whether on stage with
a few hundred or with crowds numbering in the thousands, Martinez and his band
never fail to deliver a concert not soon forgotten. Sharing the stage with such
names as Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Chris Cagle,
Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert and Tanya Tucker has given Thomas the time and
experience necessary to clearly define his sound and perspective as an artist.
The group's first CD "Promises" was released on February 21, 2006 and
has become an instant crowd-pleaser with major market radio "tuning
in" throughout the mid-west. The ten song set is full of some of
Nashville's most sought after writers such as Neil Thrasher and Larry Bastian,
and is a testimony to Thomas' ability to recognize great songs that speak to
everyday people in many different ways. Whether it's the changes that progress
brings to a small town in "Goin', Goin', Gone" or the clever tale of
two young lovers in "Crazy's All They've Got." In the end this album
is a ride through life depicting the ups, downs and magic in between.
2nd CD “The Lineman” is equally as great as the first. This CD is a mix of songs from talented
Nashville writers, as well as, songs written and produced by Thomas Martinez,
himself. The “Lineman” a crowd favorite,
depicts the life of our hard-working electrical lineman. While love songs such as “Waiting on Jean” or
“Mine All Mine” speak to anyone who has ever been in love. This album is the perfect addition to Thomas’
already successful “Promises” album and will once again leave listeners begging
latest project, a 6-song EP, is near and dear to his heart as he is a co-writer
on every song. The title song “She’s got
his back” speaks to all the women who know the trials and worries of taking
care of everything at home while her husband is out risking his life for
others. This CD is a mix of heartfelt
love songs and upbeat, get your party on, crowd loving music. This EP is the perfect introduction for the
upcoming completed album.
Thomas' unique approach to music carries over into his work as a business man
off the stage. This gift of balancing both has not gone unnoticed. Sponsorships
now include Roper Footwear & Apparel, Tin Haul Co., Miller/Coors Brewing
Co., Boulder Creek Guitars, and Roberts Auto Center. With an average of 150
shows per year, Roberts Auto makes sure Thomas arrives at the shows in style
while Roper and Tin Haul keeps Martinez looking sharp and Miller along with
Boulder Creek makes every stage appearance special.
