Ralph P Martin is a town and country east-coaster who worked two summerstock apprenticeship seasons at The Woodstock Playhouse for M. Edgar Rosenblum, to earn his Equity card. He attended NYU School of the Arts, and crossed the country six times on the sunburnt thumb. Ralph plays 5-string banjo, and was front-man for two eclectic country-bluegrass bands, Honeywagon and Smoketown Diner Boys. His first national commercial was as the Banjo Player for Anacin Arthritis Pain Formula, which ran for three years: "I have arthritis, but it doesn't have me." RPM has appeared in scads of Off-Off Broadway shows in NYC, and 99-Seaters in LA, where he relocated in '88 at the suggestion of a famous action movie star.
