Hello!  My Name is Tim Martin aka @dogcatchicken. This a website I've set up to collate pictures, recordings and videos for me to spread throughout the world 🙂  As you can see I perform music (nearly all self composed) from various different genres - which means I've sadly had to divide it up into sections - please have a butchers at anything that grabs your attention and if you get a chance leave a comment in the visitors book.

If you would like me to come and play at any events, festivals or demonstrations just let me know.  If its a paid gig (where people pay to see the artists and its not for charity or a cause that I support) I charge MU rates as I am a member of the Musician's Union.


A song I composed while on holiday in Lanzarote 4 years ago. Original Audio recording, mix & bass guitar - Nick Thompson, Percussion and remix by Mike Townsend. Video images: A. Price
Video in memory of my Mum, Zena Martin (who swam on these beaches) and the late Nick Thompson


One of those songs that just happen....not sure how it came into my mind, but here it is with the brilliant Ingrid Gould together with Mr Jazz Martin F Hubbard jamming along
