Sydney, New South Wales
Marty was born in a lemonade igloo in the frozen wastes of the far, far north. Santa was a close but stand-offish neighbour. Despite constant ridicule from the elves, Marty learned to play the Seal Rib Harp and the Steam-driven Naarba, a kind of northern tundra Stratocaster. His plaintive and forlorn warblings could often be heard by the other hunters, causing many of them at first to fling themselves into the freezing seas under the impression that some Kraken-like beast was stalking them from the deep.
At a point in his teen years, Marty (and the tribe) decided that hunting, wanton slaughter and eating indescribably unidentifiable portions of animals bodies raw was simply not conducive to the rock vibe and so, he fled the igloo, ending up just a little further south in Sydney, Oz.
Marty is a now a session musician, writer, photographer and a teacher of some allegedly handy things to know from time to time. He enjoys books, fishing, travelling (especially throughout Germany), playing dreadfully chaotic Xbox games and trying to digest indescribably hot, spicy cuisines.
In between days he sleeps.
Marty's music is available at CDBaby, iTunes and Spotify. His novel, "Stayne In Control" is available at amazon.com. As well, you may sometimes find all this burgeoning mediocrity being foisted upon unsuspecting tourists at low-rent beach bazaars.
He lives with his beautiful, incredibly understanding wife and their Bonsai plants in Sydney's north.
