Bio

Depending on who you speak with, Martha Marlow is either an established painter, or one of the most alluring young singer/songwriters in Australia.

Growing up in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs, surrounded by a family of musicians, Martha Marlow forged her way into music via an unlikely path; her love of books. After burning through classic works from Emily Dickinson, Tolstoy and musically; the back catalogues of Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Joni Mitchel and the Beatles, Marlow began crafting her own original works.

Inspired by fellow Australians like Julia Jacklin, Gurrumul, Didirri and Angie McMahon as well as acts including Weyes Blood, Lana Del Rey and Phoebe Bridgers, Martha Marlow crafts her original songs that are filled with vulnerability and hope.

this takes me back to my younger days when mum controlled the speakers and was putting on the burt bacharach collabs with their gorgeous style and twinkling pop charm.

Echoes of some legends come through beautifully on this. You're obviously a huge music fan - can hear it in the arrangement and attention to detail.

The orchestration adds to this glamorous sound but it still feels really close up at the same time. Like a fireside dance with shoes off on the carpet.
