LANCASTER, Pa. - May 6, 2020 - PRLog -- Lafayette, Louisiana native Gregg Martinez (mart-NEZ) has been performing, recording and writing for nearly five decades.  Martinez's twelfth album, MacDaddy Mojeaux, celebrates a life-long passion born in the depths of the Louisiana bayou and still burning brightly today.  A 2019 inductee into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, Martinez has received multiple nominations for OFFBEAT magazine's Best Male Vocalist in the annual Best of the BEAT Awards.  His 2016 release, "Soul of the Bayou," was named one of OFFBEAT's Top Ten Albums in Louisiana.

Three-time Grammy winning engineer Tony Daigle (Jon Cleary, Jo-EL Sonnier, B.B. King) is at the project's helm as co-producer with Martinez.  Sessions were held at renowned Dockside Studios in Maurice, LA and Wishbone Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL.  A roster of superlative musicians including special guests Sonny Landreth, Rockin' Dopsie Jr. and The Sweeties (Patti LaBelle) are combined with stellar production for the crowning jewel in Martinez's discography.

"I am thrilled to be a part of the Nola Blue family and also Blind Raccoon. It's not always easy to find record label executives and/or publicists with passion for what they do.  At this stage of my career to find that kind of passion, energy and commitment for our kind of music is very gratifying," says Martinez.

Nola Blue Records president, Sallie Bengtson, says, "The thoughtful planning and execution of this career masterpiece shines through on every track.  The instrumentation, vocals and production are superb.  It is truly a pleasure to work with Gregg to release this smooth, sweet blue-eyed soul album worldwide."

"Just Stay Gone," a rich ballad from the album, will be released on May 29, 2020 and is currently available to pre-save and pre-order here:
