A relatively unknown producer from the English town of Bridgerton, Martin Carthy is now well known throughout the world for his exciting music and recordings. His first piano and organ album was called Songs from Bridgerton; this collection of ten songs featured both traditional and modern music from the town. In this respect, the music on this album bears a resemblance to folk music, although it also has a strong electronic influence. In fact, this was not the first time that Martin Carthy had used an instrument, as he previously worked with the band Voice Of Youth, who also featured on the track A Place of Execution.
The music on A Place of Execution was released in the spring of 2021 and featured on the singles Just One Night, which was a single from Bridgerton’s self-titled album. Since then, Martin Carthy has established himself as one of the best online producers, with a number of his recordings being featured on the popular music download service iTunes. Indeed, A Place of Execution was listed at number thirty-three on the album, which is quite an achievement for an independent artist. A further six songs appeared on the single’s Day Dreamer, Another Man’s Life, and A Little Bit of Everything, while Don’t Worry, Baby, Remember When, Beautiful Tonight, Run Away Home and You Are My Sunshine were also recorded by Martin Carthy and appeared on A Place of Execution. As you would expect, each of these songs received a massive amount of download traffic and went straight up the charts, which is surprising given that they are not hugely chart-topping numbers.
This impressive music list should give you an idea as to the range of material that can be heard on A Place of Execution. It is not just dance music, but also includes acoustic numbers, pop songs, country music, and jazz. The quality of music is obviously very high, which is evident from the fact that all of these songs were recorded by Martin Carthy himself using a personal computer. His dedication to the art of music recording is clear in his music, as he has obviously put a lot of time and effort into getting the finished product. The music sounds great, with Martin Carthy’s unique style of mixed voice, which is distinctly his own. I have always had a particular fondness for this style of music, and it was fantastic to hear him using such high-quality equipment to create his masterpiece.
