Martin Birch is a British rock and heavy metal music producer, who became renowned for engineering and producing albums by the British rock bands Deep Purple and Iron Maiden.

Birch has also produced and engineered albums for numerous artists, such as Deep Purple-related projects (Rainbow, Paice, Ashton & Lord, Whitesnake, Roger Glover, Jon Lord), but also Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath, Wayne County & the Electric Chairs and Blue Öyster Cult. On Fleetwood Mac's album Mystery to Me (1973) he is also credited playing acoustic guitar.

The song "Hard Lovin' Man" from the Deep Purple album Deep Purple in Rock is dedicated to him : "For Martin Birch - catalyst".[2]
