Some may remember singer Wil Martin from his days fronting the chart topping band Earshot a few years ago. Well, with Earshot currently on hiatus, Wil is returning to his songwriting roots and has created an outlet titled The Wil Martin Project. There have been 2 songs released so far and feature Wil in his rawest form, re-inspired and free from constraints. The songs are honest, pure, raw and emotional and it carries through each melody. I look forward to hearing more!


The songs are going to be released on an EP out later this year, no release date yet.


Here’s what he had to say about the project:
AmpKicker: This is amazing stuff! Is this leading to a full album release, or casual EPs now and then? And what does this mean for Earshot?

Wil: Good question(s)! But first, thank you for taking the time to listen and for your very kind words. It means a lot. 🙂 There will be a release, and will be in the form of something similar to that of an E.P. in length that will hopefully be out before the end of this year. If not by the end of this year then for sure by early next year. Initially it will only be available digitally, and nearly all of the songs will be posted leading up to the release for everyone to stream online and check out. As to the second part of your question; Earshot will always be near and dear to me. I have no plans for it to go away anytime soon. But things were starting to feel forced and flat out uninspiring to me. I found myself becoming increasingly frustrated and unsatisfied with any and all ideas that I would come up with or work on. What I ultimately took away from that was that it was time to take a break and step away. Recalibrate. Rejuvenate. To somehow get my bearings again and “cleanse my palette” as it were. In the midst of that, I rediscovered and connected with once again, the creative side of me that was, long before the days of Earshot. This is it. What it’s not, is gimmicky and concocted….what it is, is real and authentic through and through. I hope that you and everyone you’ll hopefully share it with will love it and continue to enjoy it as much as I’ve had creating it and sharing it with you. Thanks again for listening! – Wil
