Martyn’s music has its roots in the folk scene around Beverley, Hull and the North East of England. In the early seventies Martyn and his brother formed their group “Banned Everywhere” writing most of their own material and supplementing the line up with whoever was to hand at the time.
Martyn and John continued collaborating musically through to the 1980’s though Banned Everywhere was officially disbanded by 1975. The two brothers went their own separate ways; Martyn joined a rock band that worked the north eastern club circuit though until 1979.
When Martyn’s ‘day-job’ took over and he moved south, Martyn embarked on a solo career, initially reverting to his folk roots before moving on to experiment with electronica and dance before finally returning to his folk roots in 2007.
