The goal of The Albuquerque Songwriter Series is to showcase
songwriters from all genres of music by presenting an evening of
exploring song craft in an intimate setting.
Each month the featured songwriters join each other on stage with
host Rob Martinez, Jr. to take turns playing original songs, talk
about their origins, how they came to write them, their influences
and challenges. Songs range from completed pieces to works in
Mr. Martinez is a songwriter and musician with deep local ties. As
well as performing solo and with local outfit The Daddy Os he is a
member of New Mexico's legendary traditional band Los Reyes de
Albuquerque. Mr. Martinez is also a member of the Mayor's Albuquerque
Music Advisory Board (AMAB). James de Champlon, also a member of the
AMAB and a partner in local record label Little Kiss Records,
coordinates the monthly series with City Music Liaison Tom Frouge.
"This series is not about performance, nor is it about perfect voices
or playing." says Mr. Frouge. "It is about the art of song craft, and
is not an open mic presentation. The stripped down setting, whether
the songs are rock, rap, jazz, classical, folk, world, Latin or
country, will showcase the compositions presented as they were
written, on a single instrument. It will allow the Albuquerque
songwriting community the opportunity to display their wares to other
songwriters perhaps learn from one another and, hopefully help nourish
that part of the music business in Albuquerque. It will also allow
the community at large to get to know these artists through their
