Today’s special guest Mark Martyre has literally just landed in Vancouver from his home town of Toronto.  Mark is an established and prolific singer-songwriter with three quality albums under his belt.   His music is lyrically-rich and his well-crafted folk tunes are supported by a weathered voice reminiscent of Tom Waits or even fellow-Torontonian Eamon McGrath. Tune in to hear three fantastic acoustic tunes and listen to Mark speak of his life in the music world of Toronto. Vancouver can expect to see him playing live shows in due course!
