When not touring with TR3 Martier can be found supporting any number of local and regional acts including; Birddog, the Americana duo,with his long time music partner and wife, Laura Martier, Jazz Guitatist Joe Mapp, Karl Werne and Friends and Richmond icons, The Wall-O-Matics.
Also Dan has studied with Gong Master Don Conreaux. Dans latest project with Laura Martier is called Anahata. This has been one of the most powerful and well received Sound Journeys to date. With the need for so many to heal in todays world this work has been very healing and rewarding for all involved. Look for Anahata at Shakori Hills Fest, The Leaf Fest, and several Wanderlust Festivals. There are also Gong Baths at The Well Yoga Co op on the OBX of NC.
"I have had the honor to play with so many players who inspire me in the moment.” Martier remarks, “Tim Reynolds, Eddie Williams, John Toomey, Stanley Jordan, Jeff Coffin, and so many more...I am truly grateful"
