about

Dogs in the Daylight is an ambitious 15 track collection that is full of weight and intricacy. While the new album is bigger than his previous albums, complete with piano, bass, fiddle, drums, and even trumpet, the songs are still largely carried by Jeffrey's voice and the sincerity of this songwriting - the very qualities that separate him from his peers.

"Dogs in the Daylight is as close to a masterpiece as a folk album by an emerging singer-songwriter can get" – NoDepression

"observational and piercingly honest while retelling stories of glory and defeat, much like watching the fall foliage blaze out and drift to the ground" - Adobe and Teardrops

"It's tough to pinpoint exactly what it is that sets certain singer/songwriters apart from other singer/songwriters, other than the thoroughness with which their songs turn your guts inside out. And by that measure, Martin is way ahead of the pack" – Portland Mercury

"It'll give you shivers" - The Bluegrass Situation

Track Name: Man
Hide your face from the howling wind
No more crying out
Pick up your gun, leave those you love
Learn to jump at the sound
Go bleed overseas, don’t forget to bleed proud
You are a man now
You are a man now
You are a man now

Go on back to the house the made you
Try to burn it down
Go out walking in your daddy’s shoes
They are your shoes now
Feel the weight of the fist that hit you
It’s your fault somehow
Because you are a man now
You are a man now
You are a man now

Build a castle with walls so thick
You will never be found
Take a wife and have some kids
Never open your mouth
Go and do like your daddy did
Grow old and shut down
You are a man now
You are a man now
You are a man now
Track Name: Slow Road
living in the city feels like crying in the rain
until you learn how to scream everybody looks the same
I'm gonna empty my pockets for a mountain bound train
write a song and meet a girl along the way

Come on fast train speed it up I want to get out to where I haven't been
oh poor boy don't you know it's the slow road that's gonna catch the wind

She left me standing there with my eyes on fire
I found the wind when I fell upon her lips
She ran hard and fast into the night
Saying shame on you for being afraid of this

Come on fast train speed it up I want to find out where my heart landed
Oh poor boy don’t you know it’s buried inside of you right where you left it

I’ve seen angry people hiding their faces in the dark
Spitting words like stones they’d built around their hearts
And there were children with the broken eyes of old men
Because their child eyes had been stolen from them

Come on fast train speed it up I want to find out if God exists
Oh poor boy don’t you know it’s the hands of man that have ruined this

The world’s as small as a stone I can hide it under my hands
But it’s too heavy to hold for all I don’t understand
And it’s as empty as this heart I’ve yet to know
But it’s what I don’t have that keeps me coming around for more

Come on fast train speed it up I want to get out to where the grass is green
Oh poor boy don’t you know it’s only as green as you believe
Track Name: Draw the Line
You don’t remember makin all those plans
But I do
You don’t remember promising to never do it again
But I do

Now you’re down on your knees one more time
And I don’t know where to draw the line
And this house that we built is up in smoke
But I don’t know how to let you go
I don’t know how to let you go

You don’t remember all you take from me
But I do
You don’t remember the poison that you speak
But I do

Now you’re down on your knees one more time
And I don’t know where to draw the line
And this house that we built is up in smoke
But I don’t know how to let you go
I don’t know how to let you go

Oh I’m buried under water
Holding breath for me and you
I wasn’t made to carry another
I’m gonna get away

You don’t remember how you used to hold me
But I do
You don’t remember the quiet things you told me
But I do

Now you’re down on your knees one more time
And I don’t know where to draw the line
And this house that we built is up in smoke
But I don’t know how to let you go
I don’t know how to let you go
Track Name: The Corners
I built you a boat to get around
And we laughed so we didn't have to hear the sound
Of the water as it came in
Of the water as it came in

I don't know what it is about this heart of mine
A lighting bolt off the starting line
But I lose it in the corners every time, every time
I lose it in the corners every time, every time, every time

I made sure my words were made of gold
What I could not afford, I stole
But all that's borrowed is old
All that's borrowed is old

I don't know what it is about this heart of mine
A lighting bolt off the starting line
But I lose it in the corners every time, every time
I lose it in the corners every time, every time, every time
Track Name: Grower of Trees
I am bleeding at the knuckles but I want more
My head is pounding but I want more
I want to sing until the world stands still
I want to play until I am younger still
It’s a simple thing, it’s a simple thing

I saw you at the park with your hair
You didn’t know that I was there
I dreamed about you and me getting married
And having kids, and having kids
It’s a simple thing, but it’s all that there is

I know that I am difficult to see
I’ve got worlds buried down inside of me
But I say wait love
In 50 years we’ll have all that we need
I am a grower of trees, I am a grower of trees
Can you wait for me
