Martin Sexton, Rayland Baxter 

When: Sat., Feb. 25, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $20-23

Unlike Dave Matthews and his John Alagia-produced ilk, Martin Sexton's capable of pulling off rootsy blue-eyed soul without sounding bland or insincere. It's not just his effortless vocal range, unaffected style and earnest evocation, either; Sexton's light touch and everyman charm render his sentimental songs less cloying than anyone else in the genre. His performances vacillate from spirited rock to laid-back strumming, but his passion and magnetism rein the songs back in before they go over the top. The one-time Harvard Square busker seems to innately understand how to connect with people, as two decades and seven studio albums can attest. —Chris Parker
