PREMIERE: Prolific Singer-Songwriter And Poet Martin Wardley Releases Timely Reminder to ‘Make This Count’ in New Thought Provoking Video

Cumbria based singer-songwriter, poet, and performer MartinWardley is due to release his new single ‘MakeThis Count’​. Produced​ by Ben Matravers (​HannahTrigwell,​BoyceAvenue,​EastLife)​and mastered by PeteMaher (​Rolling Stones, U2, Peaky Blinders),​ the track is the second single from Martin’s upcoming album.

Martin Wardley is​ a prolific writer known for his emotively honest lyrics that conjure up strong imagery throughout. ‘MakeThis Count’ follows this theme, focusing on how we think about and utilise time. Inspired, in part, by lockdown and the challenges we have all faced, Martin looks to convey a sense of optimism in ‘Make This Count’. The​ verse opens up with his perception of our daily struggles while the chorus rouses an aura of defiance and clarity exclaiming “I’vebeen crawling through the days, Bound down by disarray, I won’t be shamed or damned, I’ll make this count, again”.The track opens to a simple, yeteffective bass and drum driven verse allowing for Martin’s vocal performance to take centre stage, building to a chorus drenched in vocal harmonies and uplifting electric guitars. A thought-provoking video accompanies the new single: a timely reminder that even during adversity there may still be a way to make something count.

Martin takes inspiration from an eclectic mix of genres and artists but his own work leans towards a heady cocktail of TomWaits,​ Leonard Cohen,​ Arctic Monkeys and Bon Iver.​ He is however most notably comparable in both music and songwriting to NickCave. Outside​ of music, Martin releases a weekly segment on his social media channels called ‘Words On Wednesday’ that provides weekly poetry excerpts, allowing Martin the flexibility to convey his feelings of the week via an alternative medium.
