photoMartin Sexton is the self-taught singer-songwriter out of Syracuse, who made his chops playing for change on the streets of Boston and is now filling halls from the Roseland Ballroom in New York to The Fillmore in San Francisco.

Sexton's got a big voice and a big heart and a big sense of humor — and he pours it all into a big parade of blues and folk, country and rock. The word his legions of fans use, again and again, is "soul." He's got plenty.

This hour On Point: the voice, and guitar, and story of Martin Sexton.


Martin Sexton, soul, blues, folk singer/songwriter. His seventh album is titled "Seeds."

This program aired on July 19, 2007.
