Martin Luther at Yoshi's Oakland


Yoshi's Oakland
510 Embarcadero West
Oakland, CA


Martin Luther McCoy was born in San Francisco, California. A summer child who bathed in the sweet soul music of the seventies and found himself a Bill Withers and Sam Cooke fan before being properly introduced to the electrifying perennial funk mob, Parliament Funkadelic. A life long student of music, Martin began writing songs as early as age 6 and would rearrange the gospel songs he learned in church. The influence of San Francisco’s cultural melting pot allowed him to gain a great appreciation for rock and roll. His voice is anointed with the ethers of the gospel church but his pen speaks to sinners and saints alike.
