CHRISTINA MARTIN

‘IT’LL BE ALRIGHT’

OUT APRIL 20

Fifth album by the Halifax-based singer-songwriter marks a major artistic breakthrough.

“Martin mixes her intense and intimate character writing with her toughest and strongest music to date.  Always handy with pop melodies and arrangements, now she has more edge, and lots of blistering guitar moments to go with it.” – Bob Mersereau, CBC/Author The Top 100 Canadian Albums

Experimentation is the lifeblood of any artist. But occasionally they experience moments when everything comes into focus, and suddenly they have opened a door to a limitless creative future.

Christina Martin has reached that point on her fifth album, ‘It’ll Be Alright,’ released April 20 on her own Come Undone Records, in partnership with ToneToaster (Germany). The 10-song collection finds the Halifax-based singer-songwriter attaining what her music has always suggested, a place where the ghosts of her musical heroes freely mingle with pop-rock’s modern architects.

Born in Florida and raised in Canada’s Maritimes, Martin’s musical journey since her first release in 2002 has led to extended stays in Austin, Texas, as well as Germany, from where she has cultivated a substantial following across mainland Europe. Along the way, she has earned numerous East Coast and Music Nova Scotia Award nominations, and had songs placed in multiple television programmes.

“With this album, I am able to say a lot more with my music than I ever have before,” Martin says. “There is growth because we are all reaching for something bigger for ourselves and the audience.” Working closely with her husband Dale Murray (Cuff The Duke, The Guthries), Martin made a conscious effort not to be bound by the expectations of those who have categorized her in the past as an alt-country artist. Although she will never shed those influences, ‘It’ll Be Alright’ utilizes far more sonic textures, allowing Martin to explore the many sides of her musical personality.

The album’s brilliance is its seamless blend of the past and present. The bridge between them is Martin’s voice, an instrument both haunting and immediate, traits that could also best describe ‘It’ll Be Alrights’ lyrical content. To say the album is Martin’s most accomplished effort to date is stating the obvious; what is remarkable is how her maturity has translated into her most accessible album to date as well.
