Flav Martin & Jerry Marotta

World renowned drummer Jerry Marotta has performed with Paul McCartney, Hall & Oats, The Indigo Girls, Sarah MacLachlan, and John Mayer to name but a few plus a decade of performing and recording with Peter Gabriel.
Credited as one of the most innovative acoustic guitar players on the scene, Flav Martin blends beautiful melodies with intricate technique, voicing, and a percussive style.

Soul Redemption is the debut release from singer/song writer Flav Martin and drummer Jerry Marotta. The duo harmoniously blends modern adult rock with traditional world pop. Whether performed in a cafe in Italy or on the polo fields of Indio, these songs would feel comfortably at home in either environment.
Innovative acoustic guitarist Flav Martin teamed up with long time friend Jerry Marotta to deliver a solid album that showcases Flav’s strength as a singer-songwriter and vocalist. Seven of the nine songs on Soul Redemption were penned by Flav. Standout tracks are “Soul Redemption“, “Please” and the infectious “Rio De Janiero“. The traditional Italian ballad “Coffee Song (Cosa Hai Messo Nel Caffè)” captures Flav and Jerry’s Italian roots.
Fans of Peter Gabriel will delight as Jerry Marotta and Tony Levin (bass), the rhythm section of his classic line-up, reunite for the backbone of this album. Also backing up the duo are their long time friends Peter Primamore (piano), Thor Jensen (guitar), Marc Shulman (guitar), and Gary Schreiner (harmonica/accordion).
