Martin Childs


Martin deep in thought in what might have been....


I joined the band in the summer of 2015 when, by chance, I heard Nursery Cryme playing at a rehearsal studio whilst down the corridor massacring some rock standards with a pub rock band.

As a young lad I split my time musically between playing Classical guitar and jumping around my bedroom screaming to Deep Purple and dreaming of being a rock star.

When my version of ‘Tubular Bells’ for 2 Guitars recorded with my mate Brian in his front room, was rejected by Virgin, it became clear the world wasn’t ready for my immense talent, so I decided I’d better get a job instead.

As the years passed my musical tastes evolved to various prog rock bands, especially Genesis, and many years later after a succession of pub bands, by good fortune I found Nursery Cryme.
