Martin Kerr might be the only artist in the world to have played 300 live shows this year. When Covid-19 cancelled all his touring and festival plans for 2020, he launched ‘Stay Home Street Concerts’ instead. As soon as the snow melted (in his adopted hometown of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) he was out on the streets every day, bringing music and hope to the masses, one block at a time.
From their driveways, balconies and front lawns, every show finished with the whole street singing ‘You’re Amazing’, the uplifting, instantly singable hit from Kerr’s latest album. (It’s earned radio play across Canada, the UK and the Netherlands and climbed to #4 on the Spotify Viral Chart.)
In dark times we all need to find hope. Somehow, against all the odds, Martin Kerr is bringing music to people face-to-face, building community one street, one song at a time.
“Wow, Martin Kerr – what a voice! Pristine, measured, beautiful.” – Sarah McLachlan
“Had me in tears” – Bruce Cockburn
