// Martin Eyerer
Martin Eyerer’s eyes light up when he recalls his travels from continent to continent. From a hair-raising taxi ride through the Brazilian jungle, to some of the world’s most modern megacities, Martin has had a great deal of experience with gigs in faraway places, in unknown nightclubs and with unfamiliar people.
