A member of the cult-favorite '90s act Jonathan Fire*Eater and the acclaimed 2000s indie band the Walkmen, as a solo artist Walter Martin writes charming, life-affirming songs that bridge the gap between music for children and adults. On "juvenile" albums like 2014's We're All Young Together and 2017's My Kinda Music -- both of which won Parents' Choice awards -- he celebrates the joys and wonders of life in ways that resonate with the young and the young-at-heart. His albums for adults, which include 2016's Arts & Leisure and 2020's The World at Night, tackle subjects spanning art history to mortality with a light-handed wit that places him in the tradition of master storytellers like Harry Nilsson and Randy Newman. Martin grew up in Washington, D.C., and began playing with the rest of Jonathan Fire*Eater while still in high school.
