5: Martin Courtney

My Favourite Elliott Smith Song

Our guest today is the musician Martin Courtney. Martin is the lead singer and guitarist in the band Real Estate.  He’s been big into Elliott Smith since he was in high school and can even be found tweeting about Elliott from time to time – which is actually how we realised he was a fan in the first place.  In this interview, we discuss his favourite song pick, we talk about how he came across Elliott first time and Martin also mentions a producer he’s worked with who may have some hidden Elliott live recordings.  After we speak to Martin, we have a listener submission from Jessica Smith and we also talk more about our charity tribute show in London on 6th August (tickets are now available for this event here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/elliott-smith-50th-birthday-party-tickets-63494629145). Hope you enjoy the episode! Extra things to look at / listen to: Ballad of Big Nothing by Elliott Smith on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/track/4HqRhdpxH9zFUkf1kzbr3H?si=Am-UoyFgQsGA9KipokS_Pw Either/Or by Elliott Smith on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/5hryhrT7wEdLnZCbJX9F6L?si=80l0iiQ0SBaez5kb2j6x7w Angeles by Elliott Smith on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/track/0Ziohm1Ku8E2yUDYoclfhO?si=kylFXgRQTGGIziUB93G9GQ Tickets for Elliott Smith 50th birthday tribute show in London: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/elliott-smith-50th-birthday-party-tickets-63494629145 My Favourite Elliott Smith Song is produced by Rob Comba and Elizabeth Withstandley.
