Album Notes
Martin wanted to do something special to pay homage to his father, a modern-day Renaissance man by any modern-day standards. Growing up in a house full of music, Martin was no stranger to great musicians, but it wasn’t until his teenage years where he truly discovered the music many would consider quintessential. After discovering The Beatles, he recalls solidifying a new deep bond with his father, saying:

“Finally being able to share his knowledge of the history of rock with a starry-eyed son was a huge deal for him. And it definitely didn’t stop at The Beatles. We would talk about music constantly and he got me into everything from Jethro Tull to Prince. He started telling me stories about ‘playing hippie’ (as he called it) in the 60s and 70s: Smoking grass for the first time at a Zeppelin concert. Driving a stranger that he met at a $3 Rolling Stones concert from Dallas to L.A. just because the guy asked. His mom dropping him off at the highway so he could hitchhike to San Francisco when he was 17. Subsequently living on a commune in San Jose. Hanging out backstage with the 13th Floor Elevators. Playing volleyball with with The Eagles! So to me, music became equal to love and adventure.”

It’s those equal parts of love and adventure that became the spark of several albums, and a young man’s future. The Color Scheme draws on heavy influences across the past six decades.
