Pedro Martins hit the headlines in 2015, when he won the prestigious Montreux Guitar Competition as a young Brazilian prodigy and made a strong impression on the jury formed by Kurt Rosenwinkel and John McLaughlin. After studying guitar and piano as a child, this eclectic Brazilian musician has become a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter perfectly at ease with typical Brazilian genres like samba and choro, as well as with jazz, fusion, progressive rock, and world music.

Pedro has played with likes of Thundercat, Jacob Collier, Brad Mehldau, Daniel Santiago, Eric Clapton, and more. A member of Kurt Rosenwinkel’s Caipi Band, the group was invited to headline the prestigious Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2018, and so was the Brazilian duo formed by Daniel Santiago & Pedro Martins, marking the first time Brazilians headlined the landmark festival. The event led to Clapton’s participation in Daniel Santiago’s latest album, Song For Tomorrow and on Pedro’s newly released album, Rádio Mistério (Heartcore Records). Both acts are confirmed on the 2023 Crossroads Guitar Festival.

Martins’ second solo album, VOX (2019), dreams up a jazz fusion sound infused with deep Brazilian background elements and pop rock sensibilities. VOX is the result of a two-year recording and production collaboration with Rosenwinkel and features an all-star cast of supporting musicians: Brad Mehldau, Chris Potter, Kyle Crane, Frederico Heliodoro, and Antonio Loureiro. In Pedro Martins' latest album Rádio Mistério (2023), the Brazilian guitarist, singer, multi-instrumentalist, and composer comes into his own as a fully developed artist with these 14 landmark songs that range from 80’s synth pop to seriously deep and breathtakingly beautiful bossa nova ballads, creating a modern low-fi sound. The album features current A-list artists from the new LA scene (Thundercat, JD Beck) and legendary figures like Eric Clapton, Omar Hakim, and Heartcore Record's very own Kurt Rosenwinkel.
