Martin Kaye is a high-energy pianist, singer, songwriter, and all-round showman. Shoe-less with socks always mismatched, he exudes energy beyond anything you've ever seen, and his distinct showmanship and dynamic flair make every performance, and Martin himself, a genuine tour de force.

It began with singing lessons at the age of three and piano lessons at six, and by eleven he was starring in shows in Manchester. At fifteen he wrote his first song, and eventually, opportunity led him to London.

He began collaborating and recording with several producers, including Sheldon Conrich (Lucinda Belle Orchestra) and IIan Bluestone (Anjunabeats, Above and Beyond). The result was his debut album, About You, in 2006.

 

He spent four years travelling the world on cruise ships, honing his craft, developing his inimitable style, and... discovering his love for mismatched socks. 

At twenty-eight, Martin moved to New York and secured the role of 'Jerry Lee Lewis' in the first US Tour of the Tony award-winning musical, "Million Dollar Quartet".

 

Performing in more than 35 cities to rave reviews, he was nominated for a Helen Hayes Award (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Non-Resident Musical). 

 

In 2013, Martin opened the Las Vegas production of "MDQ" to packed houses and rave reviews, and later that year was voted 'Best Actor' for his portrayal of 'Jerry Lee Lewis' by Vegas Seven Magazine.

After four fantastic years in Las Vegas, he was then approached to play the role in MDQ’s first UK tour.

He went on to achieve equally high acclaim in his home country, appearing on BBC's "The One Show"  and at the prestigious Royal Festival Hall in London.

 

With over 2000 performances and six years as 'Jerry Lee Lewis' under his belt, Martin has now hung up his wig as he continues on his musical journey. 

 

He has now produced three full-length albums and two EPs, has co-written a new musical, "Bright Side", has just opened a new one-man show, "Elton John: It's A Little Bit Funny", and is a regular headliner on luxury cruise ships around the world.
