ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Started in 1992 in Los Angeles as a duo, then through the mid nineties as a full band and finally as a solo artist, the band IDAHO has had Jeff Martin as the sole thread through all of the incarnations.

Known mostly for four-string guitars, low tempos, spectral feedback and production nuance, IDAHO has never bowed to the pressures of being commercial. For its trouble, IDAHO has remained the eternal underground band. By luck the band has attracted a devoted worldwide following. Idaho is like a secret club of indie music, and for this record you'll need the code words....

About The Lone Gunman:

Jeff Martin of IDAHO has made a career out of writing hyper personal songs of an inner life. Absent for now are the four-string guitars, they have been traded in for a Wurlitzer, an old Prophet 5 and a collection of pianos.

At times Jeff displays a playful early Eno-like absurdity such as When Sunday Comes or You Flew and at other times is just happy to be in the moment. But it's a life set against a background of darker flavors on other tracks like Live Today Again and The Mystery.

It is through this mixture of lighter moments and drifting shadows where we find his silver-lining filled peyote dream pop.

With The Lone Gunman, Jeff Martin shows his unique talent for a timeless somber beauty.

- A.P. Renick

Simply a beautiful array of sound creation
The Lone Gunman is a CD based on musical creativity and meandering meaningful lyrics. The disk utilizes beautiful piano phrasing fusing in typical and unrelated intstruments. It is a must hear for any listener of fine music, Simply a beautiful array of sound creation.
