About Martyn Ingham

Born in 1977, I began writing poetry and song lyrics at the age of 14 (in 1991), working with musicians known to me for a few years before finally taking up the guitar in 1998. Since then I have also learnt bass guitar, mandolin, banjo, mandola, ukelele, harmonica and drums, all to varying degrees. In 2001 I formed a band - "Elengenesse" - but we only recorded 1 song together before splittling up. ... read more

About Martyn Ingham

Born in 1977, I began writing poetry and song lyrics at the age of 14 (in 1991), working with musicians known to me for a few years before finally taking up the guitar in 1998. Since then I have also learnt bass guitar, mandolin, banjo, mandola, ukelele, harmonica and drums, all to varying degrees. In 2001 I formed a band - "Elengenesse" - but we only recorded 1 song together before splittling up. I then decided to record solo, having already written hundreds of songs. I self funded and recorded my first album, "Married To The Music" in 2001 at a local studio (Beliefspace) and used the same studio to record "This Is Life" in 2002, "Joseph's Bones: A Soundtrack Of Renewed Hope" in 2003 and "Twisted" in 2006. Album 5, "Where We Live", was recorded at April Media Studios at the end of 2011. "Where We Live" contains songs about life, love, landmarks and owning a dog! My latest album is "6 Simple Songs Of Faith" and is a lot more stripped down and acoustic than any of the others. Throughout the last 15 or so years I have played acoustic guitar, bass guitar, electric guitar and mandolin in 4 different church bands, in 3 different churches. From 2009 to early 2011 I was the bass player in the local T-Rex tribute band, Revolution (now defunct).

Hi all,

Hope you're all well and looking forward to celebrating our Saviour.

I have just uploaded 2 songs, one of which is my one and only attempt at something approaching a Christmas song, "Wonder". The other is the "title" track from my 2006 album, "Twisted", "The Twist".

Enjoy!

God bless

Hey everybody,

Sorry it's been such a long time since I messaged you. I guess I have been going through a bit of soul searching lately. I look at my stats on this website and always think too much of myself. I mean, 17,000 plays and 21,000 profile views?? I must be doing something right, surely? I must be really popular!

Well, no. It's not about that, is it? This is music for the Big Guy Upstairs, not for me; it's not about me, or how many views or plays I get, it's about Him and I hope that in listening to my music you are able to worship - because that's what it's for.

I was brought back down to ground when I saw my latest sales figures (it takes around 90 days to get them from iTunes - go figure): 1 album download for the whole month of June. Now THAT is humbling, but God needs to change my heart on this and give Him all the glory!

So, here's another demo from my archive: "Change My Heart".

Enjoy!

God bless

Hi everyone,

Sorry things have been quiet of late - I have been on holiday!

During my holiday, one of my daily Bible readings was Psalm 78, which reminded me of Psalm 105 and indeed of the track I once recorded based on that Psalm.

You will need to have the Psalm in front of you as you listen (NIV version preferably, as I used that to time the track) and read the Psalm as the music plays - but not too quickly! It is supposed to be a meditation, so read thoughtfully and carefully. Hopefully, when the sounds come in, they will more or less line up with where you are in your reading. Have a listen and you will see what I mean. The sound engineer and I had to get a bit creative with some of the sounds, I can tell you!

I hope you enjoy it and God bless!

Thanks for all your encouragement.

Hi there everyone!

Thank you again for all the kind emails of encouragement - they mean a lot to me.

Hope fully you have noticed that my new album is now available here, as is the CD copy. I have put on separate links for Amazon and iTunes.

As this is my 6th album, but my first on here, I am considering compiling a "best of" album to put on here. My other option of course, is to put my other albums on here for sale, too! Please let me know if you have an opinion.

Stay blessed

Hi everyone!

My album, "6 Simple Songs Of Faith", was due to be released digitally today, but I spotted a couple of errors with the listing, so it has been put back to Wednesday, June 7th. Sorry! It can be pre-ordered, though.

The CD version is already available and can be purchased mail order direct from me: £3 or $4 + shipping.

God bless

Martyn
