Singer/songwriter sensation David Martinez of Corpus Christi, one of the most in-demand musicians in South Texas, has been touring regionally with much success both acoustically and with The David Martinez Band. For the uninitiated, David’s music is a soulful refreshing mix of Jack Johnson’s laid back lyrics stirred into a glass of Lenny Kravitz funk. Most recently, David launched the independent music series at the grand opening of the Aloft Hotel Corpus Christi, and additionally was featured in an exciting evening of music and art, showcasing his signature style along with the visual artwork of noted local artist Louis Albert Garcia. A portrait of David on stage was painted by Louis and is on prominent display at the luxurious new hotel. In addition to showcasing regularly at Aloft, David has several local residencies at area hot spots including running ‘Live Music Fridays’ at Crawdaddy’s Downtown, along with regular appearances at Mesquite St. Pizza and Pasta Company, a mecca for touring comedic acts. Booking has begun for the David Martinez Summer Tour, once again sponsored by Texas Select Beverage Company and this year by new sponsor Light Up The Love TM, a global movement movement used to inspire acts of peace, love & unity in society.
A SXSW veteran, David has shared the stage with such musical greats as Ian Moore, Vallejo, Billy Joe Shaver, Johnny Rodriguez, and the Statesboro Revue. David and his band have played at these popular area venues in New Braunfels, San Antonio, Austin and on tour:

Marina Arts is a big supporter of musicians in the local South Texas scene, and David frequently performs at their First Friday Arts Walk and other civic events including the Bay Jammin’ Concert and Cinema Series at Cole Park and has also appeared at the CCIA Music Series at the Corpus Christi International Airport.
A founding member of Corpus Christi Songwriters, David will also be performing acoustic sets as part of his ‘Summer Wine Hop’ in Texas Wine Country, having been warmly received at Fiesta Winery 290 recently. A new recording project is also in the works for the band later this year, produced by a soon to be publicized Texas studio in an organic, session-like atmosphere.
