About The Band

Vince Martinez is a Seattle-based americana singer/songwriter originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico. Vince and his band, The Great Blue Yonder, perform in and around Seattle and have increasingly been receiving recognition for their engaging live performances and honest, straightforward music. Vince and the band’s latest album, Northwest by Southwest, features original music inspired by Martinez’s New Mexican roots, as well as his recent Pacific Northwest experiences.

Vince is also a member of the Seattle chapter of the Bushwick Book Club, a group of musicians that read books and perform original music based on the reading. The Bushwick Book Club has been celebrated in the Seattle Times and the Stranger.

Vince has released two full length albums: the debut, self-titled Vince Mtz. & The Great Blue Yonder in 2008 and the more recent Northwest by Southwest in 2010. Both albums have received glowing reviews from the Northwest’s acoustic music society, Victory Music, calling the first album “a record to be experienced and absorbed, not just listened to.” After the latest recording Victory stated that “Martinez and his band show a lot of promise” and to “go see Vince when he passes through”.

The Band includes:
Vince Martinez – Vocals, guitar, harmonica
Dean Moody – Keyboard, backing vocals, mandolin, harmonica
