About Martin Williams
I spent much of my adult life in the back of a Ford Transit. Bands, gigs, studios; there were close misses and a few cigarillos. I sneaked two deals – A&M and Manchester’s very own Uglyman – had a radio hit and did the big in Japan thing with my band Nilon Bombers (who?). Did the ‘Best Song Award’ fling, with Silverman at the Playboy Mansions in L.A. There’s even a ghastly steel and glass trophy in an attic somewhere as testament to that one. Toured Ireland in the back of a cattle truck, recorded an album with self-proclaimed legend Kim Fowley – a once in a life time experience (hopefully).
It wasn’t all Bunny Girls and Bacardi mind…… ohhhhh no…I’ve sold downloads, computers, CRM software, Springsteen bootlegs, miniature remote controlled indoor helicopters, SEO, song-writing and copywriting skills. I’ve audited half of Green King’s kitchen equipment – all to keep in the game.
There’s a degree in Business Computing, a Trinity TESOL and a couple of years teaching and trading in China squeezed in too. It’s been – on the whole – great.
That I’ve become a professional copywriter is of little surprise in a way. I’ve been writing all my life. I wrote the most beautiful songs you’ve never heard here- http://drop.io/silverman
The surprise really is that it’s taken me as long as it has to realise it. And to realise it.
If you want original, insightful, inventive and highly persuasive copy. I’m your man.
