Marty Hoyle was born in Seattle, WA, where he began playing drums at the age of 7. He then took up playing piano at the age of 15 and soon after studied music theory and was influenced by playing styles of Billy Preston, Nicky Hopkins, and Max Middleton the remainder of his teenage years. He quickly found himself picking up live performance gigs with some of the Pacific Northwest’s best groups and singer/songwriters. In 1998, he started doing session work in Seattle that has developed into his current work, as the keyboardist for Roger Fisher (Heart, Alias). He also performs with Medicine Hat (the band) and others. He recently finished tracking on Roger Fisher’s album “All Told” and will be touring with KATFISH in 2018.
