Multi-award-winning artist Dom Martin is touring his latest album, “Buried In The Hail,” a follow-up to his critically acclaimed “Savage Life.”
Hailing from Belfast, Martin is often dubbed the ‘new Rory Gallagher,’ and this is your opportunity to see a man very much in the ascendancy, drawing inspiration from renowned Irish blues musicians like Rory Gallagher, John Martin, and Gary Moore. Dom is joined by his talented band members, Ben Graham on bass/double bass, and Jonny McIlroy on drums.
The album commences with the enchanting acoustic introduction of “Hello In There,” featuring the joyful sounds of children at play in the background. Dom’s smoky vocals emerge, leading into the punchy and irresistible “Daylight I Will Find.”
“Government” delves into Irish folk roots, showcasing Dom’s reflective side, while “Belfast Blues” exudes grit and raw emotion, painting a vivid picture of the city’s turbulent history. The album takes an unexpected turn with a soulful rendition of Willie Nelson’s “Crazy,” offering a fresh perspective on this classic tune.
“Unhinged” presents distorted blues, akin to indulging in fiery pasta, leading to the serene beauty of “The Fall,” a poignant commentary on our fractured world. Dom pays tribute to the Wolf man in the skiffle-infused “Howlin.”
“Buried In The Hail” is a stormy, discordant masterpiece that demands attention, leaving listeners exhilarated. “Lefty 2 Guns” alludes to Belfast’s dark past with a striking electric solo, and “Laid To Rest” elegantly concludes the album, leaving you spellbound.
Don’t miss this chance to Dom Martin delivering a raw, edgy, and authentic musical experience.
