Reviews

- not reviewed
Marty Sammon was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. His encouraging family and Irish culture provided a solid structure for Marty to demonstrate himself as a musical prodigy. Marty's natural ability and sincere persona were welcomed into a city that is selective to those musicians proven to be aesthetically true to its signature sound. By age 15, Marty was performing with L.V. Banks and absorbing the sonorities and lifestyle of the Chicago blues scene. Shortly thereafter, fate and opportunity collided when Marty's talent earned the attention of Buddy Guy's younger brother Phil.
