Channeling a mix of rockabilly, folk and country, with a subtext of Latin melodies, Rascal Martinez's unique American-style roots music awakens memories of Buddy Holly and early Van Morrison with accessible and heartfelt originals, as well as an impressive catalogue of covers and standards. That sound was polished and deepened after working and collaborating in Nashville in 2016. Rascal tours year round throughout the Midwest, including Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles, Omaha and Denver to name a few. Shows are supported by material from 3 very strong CDs. His fan base is extensive and loyal, with more than 22,000 followers on Facebook alone! The dynamic live three-piece act carries a small plug in and play stage footprint but brings a big sound. Rock is replete with pretenders, borrowers and copycats, but once in a great while comes an artist who channels a spirit with a fresh yet familiar and resonant style.
