About

Welcome to Walter Martin Music

My name is Walter Martin. I'm a songwriter, musician and music fanatic. I've been in rock 'n' roll bands since I was 12. For the last 20 years I've done it professionally--most recently in a band called The Walkmen and before that in a band called Jonathan Fire*Eater. I've written and recorded tons of music with my best friends, toured the world, eaten a lot of weird foods, met a lot of strange people and had a blast.

In late 2011, when I found out my wife and I were going to have a baby I suddenly realized I had to grow up and stop mucking around with boys-- heck, I was approaching 40! I'd been writing songs with my friends forever and it was time to get serious and write something for myself. Problem was, I didn't know exactly what I wanted to say. Then, standing in my kitchen one day listening Yakety Yak I had what you'd call an epiphany and I set out to try to make the sweetest and funniest family album ever made. My debut solo album "We're All Young Together" is the result.

The album follows in the tradition of the classic family albums by Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie and Roger Miller--with a big dose of early rock 'n' roll. Everything is handmade and all the edges are left rough. Song topics include: family, travel, music history, childhood and zoo animals -- but underneath, they're all about L-O-V-E!

Acclaimed illustrator and children's book author, Marcellus Hall, created all of the artwork based on the imagery in the lyrics. For more information on Marcellus go to www.marcellushall.com -- all of his stuff is incredible!

I hope you enjoy the music as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thanks!

Walter
