Born in 1968, Martin McCann was lucky to have witnessed the many influential bands who came to play during the 1980’s and following a natural instinct, his singing voice led him to front the Dublin band SACK. His extensive portfolio includes worldwide tours, three studio albums to date and a fourth currently in the making.
No stranger to the recording studio and the live stage his entire adult life, Martin has also recently sang with the RTE Concert orchestra and dabbled in critically acclaimed theatre productions taking him as far afield as the USA and New Zealand. Besides his ongoing involvement on the musical side of creativity, It’s now no surprise that Martin has channeled his artistic prowess and following a successful exhibition of his paintings in 2019 as part of the Culture Night festivities in Dublin, he has been well and truly catapulted into the visual arena to fulfil a lifetime ambition as a visual artist.
In Summer 2023, Martin was invited to the beautiful Rathfarnham Castle in Dublin for his largest exhibition to date. The seven week residency spanning over three rooms featured 39 pieces ranging in size from 120cm sq to 30cm sq cradled boards. The exhibition entitled WABI SABI, relates to the Japanese aesthetic of the beauty of insignificance.
