jjSax Awesome musicianship, that is technical but melodic. Familiar but different. Favorite track: The Yellow Jacket.
Mikely thumbnail
Mikely Stellar debut by Shaun with a soulful, personal and diverse album. One Big Party, Yellow Jacket and Madiba are instant classics. Favorite track: Madiba.

Rob O. Not one bad track on the album. A little bit of Stevie Wonder, Soul, Jazz. The album is also personal and I like that it has a theme. Let's hope the next one doesn't take 7 years. This man's talent is too good to wait that long! Favorite track: All In A Days' Work (feat. Geno Young and RC Williams).

Corey Meeks Shaun Martin must be a fan of The Yellowjackets because he masterfully captured the essence of their sound while making it his own. Very hard to do, and well done! Favorite track: The Yellow Jacket.

Seven years ago Shaun began a project of his own. A story of his life, a contribution to the world of music from his eyes (and ears). In demand by many, Shaun took his time with the album as the story expanded to include a wider range of experience. And so, on July 7 we present to you SEVEN SUMMERS - a big chapter in the history of the great Shaun Martin. Seven Years. Seven Summers. Seven Seven.

Seven Summers is an album that was clearly well thought out; a refreshing feel in today’s world of instant production.
"I’d say that 7 Summers is a chronicle of growth in character and perspective. As I grew over the last seven years, I experienced so much and I wanted to translate that through the music and lyrics....” (Shaun Martin)
