Storyteller

Martin Saycon (S-teller aka Storyteller) hails from the garden state of New Jersey. He first fell in love with music by watching and learning all the moves, songs, and script to the classic movie, "The Wizard of Oz" (1939). 

Between 1997 and 2000, Martin was part of concert chorus and band. Realizing that he was more passionate about singing, he overcame his parents lack of money for lessons by teaching himself. This tireless effort of artist development led to him to lending his voice to cover songs by local bands.

 

Martin participated in theater 1 through 3 in High school, where Ms. Riccardi (the theater teacher at the time) was one of the first people to notice Martin's talents and how to mold them better. This led to Martin participating in his first musical theater production, "Bye Bye Birdie". 

Following this, Martin was then chosen as one of the few students to participate in a one-act theater competition in Pennsylvania, where he would go on to win his first award for Excellence in Acting. Over the next 12 years, Martin performed in over 50 musical theater productions, capturing multiple awards in vocal and stage performance.

 

Martin has also studied and performed the art of stand-up comedy in New York state, at the prestigious Gotham Comedy Club. There he is well known for his impressions of several celebrities, including former President Barack Obama. 

 

In 2011 Martin launched his own YouTube series called "Saycon Says". He has been hosting and performing skits regularly to this day about various celebrities and weird news topics. In addition, Martin is also the author of a book titled "The Chocolate Chip in The Vanilla Cake", which tells the story of his struggles growing up with racism and depression. His story has sold over 2000 copies and garnered wide and respected criticism from the reading community.
