Martin Blunt (Charlatans UK)


Among the last ensembles from the hallowed late 1980s “Madchester” scene which continues to make new and vital music, The Charlatans show no signs of slowing down five decades into their career.


Founding bassist Martin Blunt, an Ashdown, Fender, and Elite Strings endorsee; works the pocket and serves as a melodic catalyst, drawing from acid jazz, rhythm & blues, classic soul, and Brit psychedelia. In fact, oft times Martin’s bass “is” the song as his motifs serve as hooks as well as a harmonic foundation!
