Beginning his musical career developing artists, Curtis Martin has immersed himself in various aspects of music – writing, engineering, producing, managing artists and performing himself as one half of the rock duo, Sixlight.
Recruited by writer/producer, Kane Churko, Martin moved to Las Vegas (with creative partner and future Cadium writer, Rob Endling) to get involved with the steady stream of projects at The Hideout Recording Studio. While working the board for various sessions, Martin’s penchant for crafting songs led to co-writes with rapper, Ekoh. Martin’s co-write (with Endling) on “Sad But True” on Ekoh’s Through the Static EP, features the aforementioned Martin/Endling project, Sixlight. Sixlight contributes heavily to the song’s sound. Martin is also developing new artist, Lolife and continues to work with Ekoh.
Curtis has co-writes on releases including Otherwise’s Defy, album (Mascot), which includes the lead track, “Lifted, “Gold,” with Rachel Lorin (The Orchard) and a track on the Ded EP, Mannequin Eyes. Martin has other co-writes on the yet-to-be-released Ded album.
Martin also co-composed a spot for Lexus with Endling. More scoring for the car company due out in the future.
