Martha was raised on sounds of classic American artists - such as Bonnie Raitt, The Eagles, The Travelling Wilburys - staples of her family's vinyl collection. She later became interested in female song-writers and country legends such as Patsy Cline, Dolly Parton and Sheryl Crow and felt inspired to take up the craft of writing, herself.
Her debut album, Better Days, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2014 with David Spicher producing and Music City's best players appearing on the release. Her anticipated second album will was also produced by Spicher and Martha's merry band of Nashville musicians.
The new album will be released in Autumn 2018 and Martha is already planning a UK/Ireland tour to support the release.
Over the past few years, she has travelled to Kansas City, to play and showcase at Folk Alliance - with funding assistance from Creative Scotland. She spent three months in Nashville writing her second album and nd album and playing live at the world-renowned Bluebird Cafe and The Nashville Palace.
