Danny McMartin and the Pshycodelic Surfers

One of the last remaining ‘Surf Rock’ artists in the world! 

Danny’s love of Surf Rock was inevitable after being raised near the beach on a staple diet of epic surf film soundtracks. His future was set early to be a master craftsman and carve out his own modern twist to the Surf Rock genre. 

Having a promiscuous musical background all laid a foundation for what would become his unique solo surf guitar work of today. 

Danny’s musical sojourn has taken him on tours in Japan and the Philippines, to festivals playing for tens of thousands in Australia and several intimate shows in the UK for Amy Winehouse, members of Jamiroquai and The Clash. Not to mention having the pleasure of playing INXS greatest hits with some of its original members.

With his full-length debut album ‘Ocean On Fire’ produced by Sean Carey (Thirty Merc) being released Friday 20th September, the future will be a tsunami of feel good party tunes. 

While the songs pay tribute to legendary musicians such as The Beach Boys, Dick Dale and The Ventures, the album takes an exciting twist galvanizing a familiar sound, which unfolds as a soundtrack for music lovers into the future. Danny’s music provides an organic feel-good partying vibe that takes the listener straight to the beach.
