2018 COUNTRY/AMERICANA BAND OF THE YEAR IN CHARLESTON, SC
Charleston City Paper Music Awards

Indiana Public Radio‘s The Scene:
“Michael Martin, apart from being a long-time friend of The Scene and patron of the arts in Muncie, is the creative force behind Mike Martin & the Beautiful Mess – a gritty Americana group with with Irish folk and country influences. Their high energy performance is the driving force behind a repertoire of originals and familiar covers, all performed with authenticity and roots-based soul.”

MVD Entertainment Group:
“Mike Martin has been compared to Dylan, Cash and Woody Guthrie but one listen will give you proof that Martin is an American original. In the baptism by fire approach to the road Martin and his band The Beautiful Mess is like when Neil Young joined forces with Crazy Horse, or when Tom Petty met The Heart Breakers.”
