Martin has spent practically all his working career in financial services. He has been Chairman and Chief Executive of some of the largest financial advisory and pension businesses in the UK. He still runs a financial advisory business. His passion is for the Euphonium and since returning to playing after a thirty five year gap he has relished the opportunities to study and perform. He achieved his MMus at the RWCMD last year and achieved FTCL status recently. Recitals have been given at St Martin-in-the-Fields and various cathedrals, concert halls and churches through to the Town Hall in Lerwick, Shetland Isles and abroad. He delights in trying to encourage audience members to return to playing or singing.


His recent CD "The Lyrical Euphonium" has been received with excellent critical acclaim and from listeners feedback all around the world. BBC Radio 4 have already featured a number of the tracks. Martin wanted to capture the popular tracks from recitals and new works that demonstrated how well the euphonium dovetails with the piano in recital.


The Lyrical Euphonium Album has recently been selected as a finalist for the 2023 ITEA Roger Bobo Awards for excellence in recording. These awards are made every two years and were established by ITEA to foster, encourage, and recognize excellence in the field of recording. This award recognizes artists who have produced recordings of the highest distinction, and are given to those whose work illustrates an exceptional level of artistry, regardless of popularity or other factors.
