Album Notes
Over the years Martin has been interested in situational music; crafting songs that tell a story. This comes through in his debut EP, Tempo of Life. With compositions that are influenced by such artists as Jack Johnson, Bruce Springsteen, Neutral Milk Hotel, Van Morrison and James Taylor, Neuhard weaves tales of reflection on the past and hope for the future. He enjoys music that can keep a listener engaged through both lyrics and melodies.

Martin is a relative newcomer to the singer-songwriter community, but, not to music. Martin has been playing guitar and writing tunes off and on for 20 years, playing with a variety of musicians and hitting the occasional show.

Excellent tones and innovation, great songwriting
This is a great album, however you approach it. There is a tremendous variety of sounds and tones in the expert instrumentation. The artist demonstrates that you can create complexity and variety in music without making too busy of a wall of sound. The vocals are excellent and the lyrics are though-provoking; you should give the vocals their own listen-through after you've absorbed the musicianship of the album. Bourbon Street in particular mixes acoustic and electric sounds in interesting ways. Detachment is a bit heavier and still rich with expression and variety. Tempo of Life is a great way to end the record, as it introduces more acoustic sounds and further showcases the artist's lyrical and vocal abilities. The production is excellent and none of the instrumentation is intrusive. Overall this is a great record that gives the listening something new in an industry where "something new" is increasingly rare.
