    Dear Martha Thank you and your whole band for the second exzellent performance at the country festival at "Albisgüetli" in Zürich on February 9-2017. It was a pleasure to see you moving in your exclusive outfit on the stage and finally on the dance floor. Hope to see you and your crew next year again.

    "For most folk attending (Southern Fried Festival, Perth, Scotland) however their abiding memory will be the debut performance from Texas Martha and her band of expert pickers, all French, The House of Twang. With telecaster twang, Dobro and banjo picking and Martha's joi de vivre they blew away the clouds that shadowed the opening act Shady Pete & The Blues Concessions....Finally it's fair to say that Texas Martha and her merry band of Frenchmen were the hit of the night, their twang driven honky tonk songs had the audience dancing, sometimes a little too exuberantly. The band, their chops well honed from years of experience playing on the French roots and rock circuits, excellent, Martha a perfect front, her voice commanding, herself full of fun. This was their second show of the festival and later that night a lucky few saw a third as the band on returning to their hotel found a wedding in full swing, unpacked their instruments, and played a short set for the bride and groom. Hopefully we'll be hearing and seeing more of them in the not too distant future."

    For me, Martha is one of these performers you have to hear live...what you get from a live performance is one-hundred- percent drive. That’s what we got today, and it was a near-faultless performance. Martha always radiates good-naturedness. She actually enjoys being on stage, singing, seeing the audience, getting feedback, smiling with us. And she brings that persona off stage too, being a total charmer signing autographs afterwards. You can’t help but warm to her. The material was mainly promotion for her new album Southern White Lies, and it rocked and never let up. We heard songs such as the title track ‘Southern White Lies’, ‘What Good Can Drinkin’ Do?’, ‘Do As You Are Told’, ‘Lonesome Road Blues’, ‘Johanna’, and ‘Born To Boogie’. The House Of Twang are a powerhouse on stage, driven by drums and stand-up bass. The guy wielding the Fender Telecaster is great and the same may be said about the band-member who trebles on pedal steel, resonator, and banjo . The ensemble as a whole has the edge of a bowie knife! The whole ambience was a crimson glow towards the end; stars for performance – slick, expert, exciting, and driven.
