Bio

Sydney Singer/Songwriter Martha Marlow grew up in a musical household and was performing at many leading venues and festivals before finishing her HSC. Now 20, Martha is already making her mark on the scene Playing alongside Katie Noonan, Clare Bowditch, Angie Heart (Frente), Thelma Plum, Thirsty Merc, Matt Corby, Abby Dobson, Bluejuice, Jinja Safari, Meg Mac, Darren Percival and more. Martha’s pure voice andunique open tunings are trademarks of her sound and her carefully crafted songwriting shows an undeniable wisdom beyond her years. "Martha Marlow is a raw and untapped talent with songs that surpass most of what we’re introduced to in today’s music. "http://www.themusic.com.au/
Martha's EP "These Days" Produced by Stu Hunter (Passenger, Katalyst, Julia Stone, Sia ) and mastered by Grammy award winner Helik Hadar (Joni Mitchell, Tracey Chapman) has been greeted with marked success- It features her song ‘Dust’, which was a finalist in this year’s celebrated Vanda and Young Songwriting competition. Her single "These Days" was also voted in the top 30 tracks of 2013 by respected music blog Independent Clauses. Her debut EP Launch earlier this year was completely sold out and featured a spectacular duet with the illustrious Katie Noonan. Martha Marlow also recently recorded a feature song for the final episode of the award winning Television Drama Series 'A Place Called Home' .
"Every now and then, in a male dominated industry and a traditionally male dominated field, one catches up with a female musician who blows ones socks off... Wry, conversational songs with the kind of rhythmic unusual singing and strange guitar tunings that is the most idiosyncratic and original type of thing and it is just delightful. It’s fresh, funny sad and sardonic – at once new and traditional (think laurel canyon in 1969). This is a great first release and introduction to her lovely intuitive musical world. Absolutely recommended if you need something effervescent to lift a heavy spirit.’ Steve Kilbey (The Church)
Martha Marlow is currently working on her next EP and future artistic projects. Her abundant creative musical talent is also paralleling a fine Arts degree in painting at the prestigious National Art School in Sydney.

A song that's bold and adventurous. It's like Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling and Fiona Apple rolled into one.
