Ernest Martin recorded as many as thirteen 45's, three 78's, and eight albums, before calling it a career in 1986. Born January 27th, 1914 in Clay City, Kentucky, Martin spent alot of time in the Hamilton, Dayton and Middletown areas of Ohio. Almost exclusively a gospel artist, his recordings feature wonderful "rockabilly" style guitar playing courtesy of Bob Norvel.
