where you can get your marty fix

Yes, it`s true!! Marty will do the Japan tour with the the amazing rock goddess Aikawa Nanase in June and July. For those of you not familiar with Aikawa Nanase, she has sold over 12 million cd`s (in Japan alone!) and besides being a fabulous singer, she is one of the few singers in Japan who actually write their own lyrics. Her style is full of attitude and charm, great pop hooks chock full of powerful heavy rock guitars. Very high energy, uptempo music. The production of her records is done by none other than Tetsuro Oda who is known for his futuristic cutting edge production and unique song sense. According to Marty, "I was a fan of her music already and when I got to meet her we just clicked. She is so fun to talk to, the hours just fly. I really can`t wait to start making music." Live dates as of now include:

6/26-Osaka Hatch

QUICK BYTE- Marty has spent the last few days in the 'secret lab' underground studio of the Roland/Boss company with the Roland/Boss engineers dialing Marty's tone for the upcoming tour with Aikawa Nanase. "To have the guys who actually conceived and invented the world's top of the line music gear personally dig in and show me the best ways to use the GT-6 and VG-88 has been an amazing experience. My tone has never been this good. Thanks, guys!" says Marty. Aikawa Nanase's music is produced by genius Tetsuro Oda and we can expect Marty's live interpretation of Oda's guitar magic to be nothing less than awe inspiring.
