His first passion were the drums. When he was five years old, he used the knitting needles of his grandmother to hit the cushion to play to music fom the Rolling Stones, Beatles or CCR.
His parents would not let him play real drums so he first had to learn to touch the keys of a piano before he went back to his passion when he was thirteen.
Since then he played in bands in Switzerland and Austria and got his experiences live and in studios.
Martin gets his inspiration from drummers like Jamal Thomas (ex. Maceo Parker), Martin Stoeck (PUR) and the legendary and one and only Jeff Porcaro (TOTO).
