A former professional soccer player, Martin began his musical career writing songs for other acts. With Bernie Taupin, he co-wrote "We Built This City" for Starship and "These Dreams" for Heart, both becoming number one hits. In the mid-80s Martin and friend Brian Fairweather formed a new wave band, Q-Feel, whose song "Dancing in Heaven" received airplay in dance clubs and on an L.A. radio station, and was later featured on the "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" soundtrack. The song "We Built This City" was originally written for Q-Feel.
