Martha Wainwright at Café Du Nord, SF.
With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling performer and a refreshingly different force in music. Martha began building a buzz with her well-noted EPs, prior to her 2005 critically and commercially successful debut LP, 'Martha Wainwright'. London's Sunday Times included the song, "Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole" in their songs of the year and Rolling Stone called it "a blistering prelude to her debut album. "
In 2008, Martha followed with her sophomore album, 'I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too', which showed her great musical maturity and talent as a songwriter. In 2010 she toured the world promoting her third album, 'San Fusils, Ni Souliers A Paris: Martha Wainwright's Piaf Album'. This extraordinary album, an homage to the great Edith Piaf, was received with glowing reviews, leaving audiences stunned by Martha's incredible range and talent. Her last album, 'Come Home To Mama', produced by Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda, was heralded by Mojo Magazine as a "substantial and brilliantly sung career best. "
Now, four years later, 'Goodnight City' is poised to be her best record yet. This album returns to the rawness of her first release and includes songs by Martha, as well as songs written by notable artists to highlight her incredible voice. These songs are written by her friends and other great songwriters such as Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, her brother Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs.
'Goodnight City' was produced by Thomas Bartlett (Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard) and Brad Albetta (Angus and Julia Stone, Teddy Thompson) to create a poignant album that covers a dynamic spectrum in a fluid and cohesive manner. The album was recorded in Montreal, where Martha and her husband have resided for the last couple of years with their two children. 'Goodnight City' will be released November 11th worldwide.
