John Martins Reality
The concept for John Martin's Reality crystallized in the Spring of 1992, when two friends were jamming by the fireplace. Who is John Martin? He is the mythical modern-day everyman. He exists in all of us, but is not any specific person. Reality, of course, is what all of us face on a daily basis. The music of JMR is an eclectic blend of several genres, such as rock, R&B, and alternative, along with a little bit of blues and funk. JMR's unique style is typified by such songs as 'She Waits', and 'Wish'. Matt Sweigart and Mark Payne decided to take a bold leap: form a band, and leave the fireplace behind. Matt, a gifted songwriter, as well as an outstanding lead singer and guitarist, ad written several songs that both he and Mark wanted to perform. Mark, also a talented guitarist and singer, contacted some of his musician friends, and JMR was on it's way. If you thrive on originality and good vibes, get ready for an exciting musical experience as you groove with JMR's hot, happening five: Matt Sweigart, Mark Payne, Sam Dozler, Marcus Quiller, and Alton 'Kubie' McHerrin.
