This spring, veteran vocalist Gregg Martinez will release his latest full-length album.

Soul of the Bayou, Martinez’s eleventh full-length studio offering, will be released Friday, April 15th via Louisiana Red Hot Records.  The album boasts a variety of topics and sounds throughout the course of its ten-song body including: The funky soul-driven ‘I Can’t Stan The Rain,’ and ‘If You Want Me To Stay,’ and the much more reserved and emotional ‘Who’s Loving You’ and ‘You’ve Got To Hurt Before You Heal’ just to name a handful of songs.  There is also a cover of legendary tenor Johnny Adams’ ‘I Wish I’d Never Loved You At All’ included in the album’s body.  The album’s complete song list is noted below.
