A premier, powerhouse vocalist of Louisiana, Gregg Martinez (from the Spanish Creoles of Bayou Lafourche) is a sensationally soulful baritone often compared to Sam Cooke and Luther Vandross. Recognized early on in local churches and bars, the young Martinez rapidly ascended all the way to an exclusive contract with billionaire Donald Trump in Atlantic City, and a seven figure recording deal with multi-platinum Philly producers Victor Carstarphen and Keith Benson. On the brink of stardom, though, the bubble burst, eventually returning the prodigal son to his native Bayou
Blues and Creole Soul roots. Creole Soul, Martinez s 10th album, struts his best collection ever of feet-don t-fail-me- now, dance floor numbers, love songs and heart-wrenching ballads delivered
in his distinctive South Louisiana Blues/Soul/Gospel/Swamp Pop style. Martinez interpretive genius shines through on lesser known compositions by fellow Louisiana masters Bobby Charles, Randy Newman and Fats Domino. It s all powered by original members of River Road (the long-lamented Capitol Records bayou country band), some brawny Louisiana brass, and subtle female choruses.
