Oklahoma-born John Moon Martin is an American singer-songwriter whose songs were picked up and turned into hits by others.The nickname "Moon" was added to distinguish him from Brit song writer John Martyn, and it also recognizes his frequent use of lunar-related imagery in lyrics. He was described by author Johnny Rogan as a cross between Buddy Holly, Warren Zevon and John Denver .His late 60's session career as a guitarist-for-hire saw him backing Del Shannon, Jackie DeShannon, Gram Parsons and Linda Ronstadt. He contributed to Mama Michelle Phillips debut solo album, Victim Of Romance (1977). His band Southwind shared stages with the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers. He also found fame in the New Wave era, when he was backed by Gary Valentine, former bass player for Blondie and was produced by Craig Leon .
