Martin Mey isn't a solitary person, but one of those talented artists who takes the risk to carry us away on a journey of which he is the unique guide. Alone on stage with his piano, his guitare, his voice and his loop machines, Martin is inhabited by his music, entrancing and ethereal, haunting or rythmical, which gets you right there. You are hit by the emotion of his singing, by the intensity of his melodies, inspired by trip hop, folk, with a touch of soul....
After a first EP in 2010 "Get out and live", melancholic and electronic, haunting and introspective, Martin Mey presents, the 11th of November 2011 "Out of my loops". As with his evolution on stage, Martin Mey experiments here an entirely acoustic disc, based on vocal loops, corporal percussions... You can hear the influence of negro spirituals, soul and folk. His compositions, mixed with original passages, take on another dimension: it's fresh spiritual, open to the participation of the listener: you can snap your fingers. Another aspect of Martin Mey opens up with these recordings, a play of loops musical and mental. A disc to listen to over and over again !
After a tour of almost 40 dates in 2011, in all regions of France and as far as Belgium from the Bellevilloise in Paris to the streets in the south of France, from the Musée de la Mine in Saint-Etienne to an acoustic tour of appartements... Martin Mey terminates this year of concerts in all formes with a clean sheet in Apt on November 26, the occasion for an exceptional concert before the regional auditions for the Printemps de Bourges and the preparation for the 2012 tour.
