It seems that my journey in music has been more like a circle, as I find myself almost back to where I began as a performing musician.
My musical journey began at school - growing up in London England during Beatlemania. My friends Richard Knowles and Ziggy Barton and I formed a band called Salisbury, Later I branched out and formed a folk duo with Andy Staines. We played college halls and clubs around London.
But there the journey seemed to have stopped. I took another path and studied architecture I did not play or write any music for over 40 years.
Then without explanation or any rational thought I returned to playing and writing music once again in 2015. I have since recorded six albums and have built an audience that I am thankful for every day.
To complete the circle Salisbury reformed in 2017 and you can hear our new songs on the Salisbury page. I hope you will join me as my journey continues. listen to the interview with Martin Valins on Fusion Music Radio.
