Martin Sexton to perform at Scarlet Room

PASCO — Syracuse native Martin Sexton, a highly successful singer-songwriter, will perform during a fundraiser for The Scarlet Room Foundation for the Arts.

Sexton’s new album, “Mixtape of the Open Road,” is a musical cross-country trip — blazing through all territories of style. The record features 12 gems all strung together with the golden thread of what Rolling Stone calls a “soul marinated voice.”

The show also features Brady Goss, a piano extraordinaire from Wallowa County. The event is Sunday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at 2820 N. Road 72 Pasco. Tickets are $23 and can be purchased in advance at www.thescarletroom.live or at the doors beginning at 6 p.m.

A musician’s musician, Sexton is highly regarded by other artists. John Mayer said he’s the best live performer he’s ever seen. After being a Sexton fan for more than a decade, Dave Matthews was thrilled to share a stage with him.

The Scarlet Room Foundation for the Arts provides support, guidance and professional level production to independent artists who can’t afford it on their own. It began in 2014 as a concept by Chase “Manhattan” Thompson, an area musician and frontman of the nationally touring rock group Night Argent.
