Barrett Martin is an American drummer, composer, writer, and Latin Grammy award-winning producer. He was the drummer for the American grunge bands Skin Yard and Screaming Trees, as well as the supergroups Mad Season and Tuatara. He is nicknamed “The Bear.”

He is the son of Deana and Brian Martin. He is married to psychologist Lisette Garcia. Barrett has said:

I love the South and I do not get here often enough, even though my dad’s family came from Fayetteville.

He also has said:

A couple of us in the Papers have grandparents from Ireland, Duff and I do (McKagan and Harrington clans respectively!) and probably Ben and Jeff do as well. You cant really be a rock and roller without some Irish in you – this job requires a serious sense of humor. Then again everyone has the Irish in them, if you know how to read and have any kind of wit about you. I once had the honor of talking with Paddy Maloney in a bar in Havana, Cuba – what a beautiful human being he is. And I was recently doing a little reading about Irish history. Did you know that the Romans could never get a foothold there? There’s not a single Roman ruin in Ireland. They made it partly into Scotland, that is, until they encountered the Highlanders on the field of battle and decided to call it quits at Hadrien’s Wall. But in Ireland, every time the Romans tried to take a beach head, the Celtic warriors would come down from the hills, half naked and covered in “wode” (look it up) and they would cut the Romans in half with their broadswords, right there on the beach. The surviving Romans would then run back to their boats to try again another day, but history shows they finally gave up.

Barrett’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his third great-grandfather, Robert Martin.

Barrett’s paternal grandfather was Amos Hause Martin (the son of Joseph Burleigh Martin and Lillie Edna Hause). Amos was born in Tumwater, Washington. Joseph was the son of St. George Henry Martin and Fannie Anne Stanbrough. Lillie was the daughter of Amos Hull Hause and Luna Bell Jane Graves.

Barrett’s paternal grandmother was Marjorie Lucille Howell (the daughter of James Richard Howell and Myrtle Melinda Green). Marjorie was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas. James was the son of Thomas L. Howell and Mary Ann “Polly” Ford. Myrtle was the daughter of John Arnett Green and Nancy Melinda Walters.

Barrett’s maternal grandfather was Dean Russell Harrington (the son of Orn Russel Harrington and Emma Frances Adams). Dean was born in Salina, Kansas. Orn was the son of Charles H. Harrington and Sarah Zorelda Moyer. Frances was the daughter of James Joseph Adams and Mary Ann Whisenant.

Barrett’s maternal grandmother was Mary Carol Page (the daughter of Edgar DeHart Page and Wilna Doris Green). Mary was born in Cambridge, Nebraska. Edgar was the son of Gilbert Arnsden Page and Lulu Alice Booth. Wilna was the daughter of Mayo Worden Green and Lulu Katherine Stilgebouer.

Barrett’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his sixth great-grandmother, Salome Welsch (died October 26, 1810, Uttwiller, Bas-Rhin, France).

    I was able to identify Barrett’s parents as Deana Carol (Harrington) and Brian Hause Martin, thanks to a news article mentioning his parents’ names.
