Shaun Martin

Sunday 5th November

Multiple Grammy Award-winner Shaun Martin is well known for his work with Kirk Franklin and as a key member of Snarky Puppy. His creative stamp can be heard on projects with musical legends Chaka Khan, Erykah Badu, Fred Hammond, Tamela Mann, Kim Burrell, God’s Property, and more.

 

A native of Dallas, Texas, Shaun Martin’s prodigious gift was noticed and nurtured at an early age. He began playing the drums and piano at the age of four, and by the age of five he was playing the piano and organ at church.

The supportive and musically-rich Dallas community continued to nurture him, and he it – he joined God’s Property in 1993, leading to a Grammy and a long-time working relationship with Kirk Franklin. As a music major at the University of North Texas, he joined fellow students in the ‘soon’ to be award-winning, chart-topping jazz fusion band Snarky Puppy, playing with them on the road and in the studio as they forged a new independent path to success.

In constant demand, Shaun is currently working on multiple projects with his long-term goal of creating a fine arts academy to continue the circle of musical nourishment that thrives on the Dallas scene.
