Shane Martin
Shane Martin

Bluefin Grille | Tofte MN

Shane Martin’s musical style is best described from Nashville EMMY award winning engineer/producer Kenny Royster, “Shane is a great singer songwriter on the teetering edge of country, pop, and rock where it’s just dangerous enough to be fun.”
The Minneapolis based Nashville recording artist has been called the “One Man Band”. As a solo act Martin simultaneously plays acoustic guitar, bass pedals and tambourine with his feet, all while singing. Adding in a guitar loop, harmonica and other percussion instruments creates a unique experience and full sound. www.shanemartin.com
