About: Flav Martin

FLAV MARTIN (pronounced Flahv) is dedicated to writing eclectic acoustic music. Flav has appeared on The Morning Show (NBC) and has been the primary composer for Rhode Island's Shakespeare in the Park Festival held in Westerly, R.I. every summer for the past seven years.

David Crosby -- "Excellent material and player!"
David Santaniello -- Executive with Sony/Columbia -- "A tour de force ... packed with talent!"
Tommy Emmanuel -- "Great stuff! I was jammin' along with him on the side of the stage."

He is a unique, approachable player who has performed at The Bitter End, The Spotlight, The Narrows, Stone Soup, Newport Yachting Center, Folk City, The Knitting Factory in New York, The Nassau Coliseum, The Bluebird in Nashville and other various cities north, south, east and west.

Flav's shared love is screenwriting which prompted him to open up a small project studio called "Mojo", a creative arts studio. It is a 1,200-square foot space in downtown Westerly with a small stage suitable for small film projects, talk show-type film interviews as well as audio pre-and post-production. He is currently available for scoring independent films/projects. Mojo is an active art gallery as well, fueled by the artistic vision of artist Wendy Gencarell.
