Richard Martin is an award winning singer/songwriter from Northern New Mexico. He grew up working the ranches of Eastern New Mexico. This gave him and his co writing brother Glenn an honest perspective of cowboy life and ways that come out in their songs and music. They have been published on CowboyPoetry.com. Richard has been a competative team roper and has never lost his love of the cowboy way and our rich Western heritage.
Richard has loved and played music all his life. He played with many well known C/W bands in New Mexico and on the road from the 1970s on. He now does original, honest, from the heart Western/Folk songs as well as many old favorites. He performs mostly solo.

He has performed at multiple venues including live interviews on multiple radio stations including several NPR stations, multiple gatherings and festivals in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Washington, and several in Canada, the Western Music Association National Awards Show, and the New Mexico Music Awards Show where he has been a ten time finalist and has won multiple times.
