In the summer of 2018 I, Anne, heard "Annie's Song" by John Denver playing on the radio for the first time. I was so overcome by it's beautiful simplicity that I just knew that Tristan and I had to learn this song as a duet. We both felt that this special song can touch the lives of many as it's lyrics echo our love of nature, God, or loved ones we hold dear, whether they are our lovers or family members. So, we hope that you enjoy our own rendition of this beloved classic folk song.
This video compilation includes both live vocal performances we've done in the last year, in addition to some clips from our musical theater performances.
Anne began her classical vocal training at the age of 13, then quickly launched into a singing career by the age of 15. Throughout Anne's schooling in Ohio, she became known as a special events vocalist in the state, recorded three solo CDs, and traveled with various choral groups.
After winning a music scholarship, completing her degree, and teaching private music lessons for 5 years, she pursued theater and was cast in many roles from Ohio, to Kansas City, and more recently the Bradenton/Sarasota area. Her most recent role she enjoyed playing was, "Sandra Bloom" in Big Fish The Musical at Sarasota Players.
For three years she taught music in the public schools and appeared in various performances in the area, but in early 2017 she decided to return to full time performing along side of managing an entertainment company, "Brave N Beautiful". Her company provided children's character parties and singing telegrams in the region. During the 2017/2018 season Anne was also a choir member of the professional Choral Artists of Sarasota.

Tristan traveled extensively between England and the US as a child and appeared in many school and regional theater and music productions. He studied both at The London Academy of Music and Drama, and also took private acting lessons at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He then became passionate about film and writing in high-school, started his own web-series based out of his school, and later brought his passion for story-telling to Florida as a student at Ringling College. Once in the Sarasota area, Tristan quickly became a theater favorite appearing in multiple lead roles. His versatility ranges from playing Neville in the Mystery of Edwin Drood, to Sir Galahad in Spamalot, to Phillipe in Phantom, to Will Bloom in Big Fish. He also landed his first commercial role in the fall of 2017 playing James Bond's sidekick "Q" for three Hascall Denke advertisements..
In 2016 Anne and Tristan met through the show, "Phantom" at Manatee Players. Then in the fall of 2017 they publicly came together as a dynamic duo now known as, "The Martin Duo", and have sung for hundreds of events since.
In June of 2018 they tied the knot and pledged to stay together forever in marriage and music.
Since that time we've had the priviledge to sing for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2018 & 2019, provide frequent entertainment in the region for clubhouses & over 20 retirement communities, specialize in romantic duets for weddings and anniversaries , celebrate in song at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates Tree Lighting Ceremony, and won Front Of The Line Passes in 2018 for AGT auditions.
We can't wait to be apart of your next celebration, so please review the "Programs We Offer" , our "Wedding" page, and our "Long List of Songs" or more information about what we can do for you. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions. Looking forward to working with you.
