Martyn Ellis The Acoustic Punk withLyrics that matter
Album Launch: “I’ve Got Something To Say”.
Martyn Ellis, an ex-soldier from North Wales, channels his experiences of war into poignant lyrics and gripping melodies with an acoustic punk sound. After two missions in Afghanistan, suffering from PTSD and a breakdown, Ellis turned to songwriting as a way of expressing his pent-up feelings of loss and anxiety.
On his debut album “I’ve Got Something To Say” Ellis shows emotional intelligence and a raw, delicate openness that simply draws the listener in.
His live shows are packed with emotion and the love for the music. Each of them leaves you feeling like you’ve journeyed through each experience he went through: from tales of parties in the life of a punk rock kid to the traumas faced by a man at war.
Martyn Ellis offers his fan open and honest music with the intention of showing that, no matter how bad things get – there is always hope and the opportunity to turn things around.
“His music carries a deep, personal message about the human condition, the horrors of war, and its effects on the lives of those involved.”
A music video will be released later this summer to accompany the album.
