More about this event

Martin Kerr narrates moments as if they’re happening in real-time. The UK-born and Edmonton-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer acutely focuses on the little things—the small details of his surroundings, the looks exchanged in passing, and the unspoken intention behind our words. He brings these nuances to the surface by superimposing unshakable singalongs over expressive folk instrumentation and inventive indie production. Now with millions of streams and thousands of shows under his belt, he continues to magnetically pull listeners into his embrace on his upcoming 2024 EP, After The Apocalypse.

Beyond captivating crowds as a street-performer, visiting 35 countries, he has shared the stage with everyone from Sarah McLachlan to Dermot Kennedy and Walk Off The Earth. He catapulted to the Top 10 of the Canadian Album Sales Chart and #2 on the iTunes Canada Album Chart with his full-length debut, Better Than Brand New. Then “You’re Amazing” buzzed into the Top 5 of the Spotify Viral Chart. Even in the middle of the lockdowns, he kept bringing music to the masses. He transformed an alley next to a fan’s apartment into a stage and soon delivered “Stay Home Street Concerts” at a prolific pace, performing 400 innovative live shows during the pandemic. His embrace of another perspective gave rise to After The Apocalypse.
