mobius faith From the outset I must confess I am a big, BIG fan of Shaun's work with Snarky Puppy and I was concerned about him being able to break out from the pack. This album does not disappoint.

It's difficult to pick a favorite track. From the opening intro you know this is going to be a very special recording. And further listening only enhances and illuminates that special feeling. This is a perfect recording to round out my summer. It has soul, passion, inspiration and joyful liberation.

Dan Glover My favourite track changes on each listen. A stunning kaleidoscope of all the influences that formed such a precocious, unique talent. Inspired material, amazing playing, great production and it doesn't just sound like a Snarky Puppy album. Brilliant. Favorite track: The Yellow Jacket.

Andrea KING I love every track! I appreciate the journey taken thru every emotional rollercoaster,every mood, every genre, every dedication, every musical experience, every victory, every cultural experience, every fear and feat, and ministry accumulated in 7 years. But...I feel the accumulation reaches back thru his early life stages, hence the message from his mother and motivation from his father. What an experience... expressed in the most eloquent way. Yes, I hear all of these elements. Life in song... With love, Andrea King Favorite track: All In A Days' Work (feat. Geno Young and RC Williams).

about

Seven years ago Shaun began a project of his own. A story of his life, a contribution to the world of music from his eyes (and ears). In demand by many, Shaun took his time with the album as the story expanded to include a wider range of experience. And so, on July 7 we present to you SEVEN SUMMERS - a big chapter in the history of the great Shaun Martin. Seven Years. Seven Summers. Seven Seven.

Seven Summers is an album that was clearly well thought out; a refreshing feel in today’s world of instant production.
"I’d say that 7 Summers is a chronicle of growth in character and perspective. As I grew over the last seven years, I experienced so much and I wanted to translate that through the music and lyrics....” (Shaun Martin)
