Martin Luther McCoy starred in Across the Universe and is the west coast representative of the Legendary Roots Crew; the soul singer has shared stages with Dead Prez, Cody ChesnuTT, Jill Scott, Dave Matthews and countless others… Often referred to as Martian Luther, as the brother sings with an extraterrestrial beauty, Martin has released his follow up to his genre blending 2005 Rebel Soul Music release.
"Love Is The Hero" is a heartfelt body of work that Martin has been cooking since 2008. The seasoning is right and the music is ready to be served. Martin took his band to Atlanta to record this album. He has continued to write new material and has also been busy in the studio with Zion I, Too Short, Hierogylphics Crew, Bun B, Ras Kas, Kev Choice and many others for various projects.
On "Love Is The Hero," you will hear Martin’s voice daringly create grooves of innercity inspiration as he secretly imparts an uplifting groovement on songs ‘Waiting 4 You’ and ‘Somebody Superstar’ just as loudly as he seductively croons about lost love on ‘Everything Is U’.’ Martin truly has a gift of communication and never strays away from a broad variety of subjects and diverse musical styles. On "L I T H," you can feel the polish in his use of mostly live instrumentation. "I focused on song writing and solid song structure on this record much more than I have in the past. I don’t mind attention from the masses, I just want it for my artistry more than for my vanity."
If you love hard hitting soulful rocking music then be sure and be of the first to receive "Love Is The Hero" when it officially drops, Summer 2013.
