Martin Sexton

Martin Sexton came through downtown Ann Arbor today and played a free in-store show at Borders as a teaser to two back-to-back performances at The Ark tonight. I saw Martin for the first time back in the summer of 2002 when he opened for John Mayer at Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills. It's funny that a quote John said about Martin that night — "'the best live performer I've ever seen" — is used to this day on promo materials for Martin. He's touring right now to promote his latest album, Sugarcoating, which he explained today is a collection of songs about heavy topics that are, well, sugarcoated in such a way that they don't come off as being too strident.
