Brian's debut solo album. Released in May, 2011, this 10 song studio album consist of many fan favorites performed the way they sound best, stripped down and free from the trappings of excessive accompaniment, allowing the songs themselves to take center stage. "No Rider" features Brian's gritty soulful vocals & intricate acoustic guitar fingerpicking, with occasional backing from percussion, harmonica, dobro & pedal steel, resulting in a themed collection of intimate, and at times, haunting folk songs.
"Brian Martin crafts amazingly warm songs with a distinctly soulful approach paired with lyrics that will bring both a smile to your face and leave you intrigued."
"Brian Martin quickly takes you back to the days when the genres legends were hopping trains, hitchin' rides, and playing for drinks in back road shanty clubs."
