Martin Briley

 Martin Briley (1949, London) is an English singer-songwriter, guitarist and keyboardist.
He has recorded with and written for a variety of well-known musicians, as well as releasing several solo albums Briley began playing and writing music when he was ten years old.
At the age of seventeen, he and his band "Mandrake Paddle Steamer" (later shortened to Mandrake) signed their first record deal with Parlophone/EMI, and subsequently recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
Briley signed a deal with Mercury Records as a solo artist in the early 1980s, going on to release three albums under his own name. 
His single "The Salt in My Tears" went into heavy rotation on MTV and reached No. 36 on the Hot 100 on 30 July 1983, earning him a reputation as a one-hit wonder, although his follow-up single, "Put Your Hands on the Screen" did also crack the Hot 100.
