Progger is an unusual collection of gifted musicians who were brought together by the simple desire to create new powerful, beautiful, engaging, modern music.
Originating in Austin, Texas in 2011, Progger is led by saxophonist, keyboardist, and composer Brian Donohoe and incorporates some of the most in-demand young touring and session musicians from the Texas and New York City music scenes.
With compelling compositions and energetic live performances, Progger has steadily developed a devoted following through national tours, studio releases, and viral videos.
Shaun Martin has been playing, creating, and collaborating for most of his life, yet his contributions go much further than just playing. When you move through the projects that Shaun has been a part of you can feel his style and influence; you can sense his presence throughout the compositions. Shaun’s willingness and ability to be a subtle part of each band has allowed him to be part of the very foundation.
Shaun Martin has a natural gift that has been evident since he began playing drums in church at the age of 4. Yes, his mother had the vision to arrange piano instruction from Carolyn Campbell and guide him on his path. Yes, he has several Grammys from his work with Kirk Franklin and the gospel powerhouse God’s Property and Yes, he has a Grammy that crowns his many years with jazz fusion phenomenon Snarky Puppy. But you will not find this information in discussion with this gently powerful man because he wears none of this on his sleeve.
