Artist Bio / Description
Oklahoma native Thomas Martinez describes himself as a rocker in a country boy’s body and his rapidly growing network of fans strongly agrees. They flock to concert halls and many of country music’s largest night clubs across the United States and Canada whenever they see his name in lights.
Martinez is a self made artist who has a flare for turning any tune into a heart pounding foot stomping guitar drivin good time. Whether on stage with a few hundred or with crowds numbering in the thousands Martinez and his band Wild Frontier never fail to deliver a concert not soon forgotten. Sharing the stage with such names as Brooks & Dunn, Joe Nichols, Keith Urban, Chris Cagle, Phil Vassar, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Martina McBride, and Tanya Tucker has given Thomas the time and experience necessary to clearly define his sound and perspective as an artist.
The groups first CD “Promises” was released on February 21, 2006 and has become an instant crowd-pleaser with major market radio “tuning in” throughout the mid-west. The ten song set is full of some of Nashville’s most sought after writers such as Neil Thrasher and Larry Bastian, and is a testimony to Thomas’ ability to recognize great songs that speak to everyday people in many different ways. Whether it’s the changes that progress brings to a small town in “Goin’, Goin’, Gone” or the clever tale of two young lovers in “Crazy’s All They’ve Got.” In the end this album is a ride through life depicting the ups, downs and magic in between.
Thomas’ next CD “Lineman” promises to be equally as great as the first. This CD is a mix of songs from talented Nashville writers, as well as, songs written and produced by Thomas Martinez himself. The “Lineman” a crowd favorite, depicts the life of our hard-working electrical lineman. While love songs such as “Waiting on Jean” or “Mine All Mine” speak to anyone who has ever been in love. This album is the perfect addition to Thomas’ already successful “Promises” album and will once again leave listeners begging for more.
Thomas’ unique approach to music carries over into his work as a business man off the stage. This gift of balancing both has not gone unnoticed. Sponsorships now include Roper Footwear and Apparel, Miller Brewing Co., Boulder Creek Guitars, Wedgie Guitar Picks, and Redbull. With an average of 150 shows per year, Roper keeps Martinez and the Wild Frontier looking sharp while Miller makes every stage appearance special.
