Kelly Martin

Kelly Martin and The Haywire Hopefuls are a recording project centered around Kelly Martin’s songwriting. The Haywire Hopefuls are a revolving and evolving group of musicians stemming from Brazil, Canada, and the United States. The recording process starts with a demo containing Kelly’s guitar and vocal parts. The Hopefuls then use that demo to create and add their parts using the website After all the parts are recorded, they are sent to Kelly who mixes and masters the songs. He then digitally vomits his songs to as many people and places he can throughout the web. Kelly is always looking for new people to work with, so if you are interested in being part of The Haywire Hopefuls, contact us through our Contact page.
