Brazilian musical prodigy Pedro Martins is back to blue whale to release his awaited second record, VOX, out on February 8th.
Winner of The 2015 Montreux Guitar Competition at only 21 years old, Pedro is well known for his collaborations with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Yaron Herman, David Binney, Jacob Collier, and Genevieve Artadi (Knower), as well as Brazilian jazz greats Hamilton de Holanda, Gabriel Grossi, and Léo Gandelman.
The thirteen jazz-inflected Brazilian rock songs on VOX result from a two year long recording and production process between Martins and legendary jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, so It’s appropriate that the album will be released on the former’s independent label Heartcore Records. VOX also features powerhouse performances by Brad Mehldau and Chris Potter, adding by their presence an indication of the depth of Pedro’s musical vision.
Martins is a featured member of Kurt Rosenwinkel’s Caipi Band and can be heard playing guitar, keyboards, and singing on the 2017 Heartcore Records release “Caipi”. He has spent the last two years touring the world with Rosenwinkel’s band, in addition to the pursuit of his own diverse and creative musical projects. He has just been invited to perform at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Festival with one of his musical partners, guitarist Daniel Santiago.
