Singer/songwriter Diego Martin was born in 1980, in Murcia, a part of Spain known for its thriving musical community. Though Martin did not come from a musically inclined family, by his mid-teens he found himself completely in love with music. At the age of 15, Martin saw a classmate at school playing the guitar, and was instantly hooked on the idea of being a songwriter and performer. Martin did not begin teaching himself guitar and singing at home until the age of 18. Spending the next few years working in a gas station and writing material, Martin would amass a large catalog of songs. His lyrics centering on love and loss, Martin would soon catch the ear of execs at DRO Atlantic with his melancholy, lamenting style. His first release, entitled Vivir No Es Solo Respirar (To Live is Not Just to Breathe) made huge waves on Spanish charts in 2006. Comprised entirely of Martin's original material, the record featured a collaboration with popular recording artist Raquel Rosario, singer for El Sueño de Morfeo. His sophomore effort is expected out in April of 2007. ~ Evan C. GutierrezPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
