For some artists that’s an eternity. For Martha it’s called “having a life”.
The life included the breakup of her marriage. Fighting for custody of her children. Opening a bistro that became a studio. Having to justify being a female artist who’s also a mother. The feedback was “surely you can’t be both”?
The album is called Love will be Reborn which is exactly what happened to Martha. The songs that followed the writing of the title track reflect exactly what happened in the 5 years between releases. Produced by Pierre Marchand. You just know this is good.
It’s her very best work yet. Songs like Justice, Body and soul, Hole in my heart, and Love will be reborn. We’ll include them all in the podcast.
This conversation is not a Q&A. It’s me engaging Martha and getting the hell out of the way.
Love the woman. Love the music.
It’s Martha Wainwright people. Listen up.
