Martha wrote, self-produced and recorded this ‘straight from the heart' 12 song opus while in lock-down in the SW of France - with her band of hotshot pickers and then mixed in Nashville by Sean Sullivan (Butcher Shoppe Studio - John Prine). This Texas Troubadour embodies a hundred years of Country, Folk, Bluegrass and Rock'n'Roll history, in a spirit of authenticity and palpable sincerity.
Martha's seemingly absinthe tinged vocals and her dauntless songwriting are complimented by twangy guitars, dobro, banjo, mandolin, violin, Hammond organ, double bass, piano, even some brass.
“Everything we love!” Rolling Stone France. “A perfect vision of 21st century Americana talent. “ Blues Matters – UK. “Magic – a dream team.” R2 (Rock'n'Reel). “Martha is a ”brave songwriter, managing to somehow combine the anthems of Guthrie and the Southern documentation of Gentry.” Paul Kerr, UK (Blabber & Smoke).
For the last 6 years, Martha has toured extensively across Europe from the UK to France, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and even Lithuania. She's played some of the most prestigious Country/Americana festivals and stages across Europe such as Southern Fried – Perth, Scotland, Country2Country, 02, London, UK, Craponne sur Arzon, France, Glasgow Americana and many others.
"DANCING SHADOWS" released (2018)
An Americana Tour de Force with bona fide Southern swagger, Martha Fields brings her ghosts to life in her new album “DANCING SHADOWS” . Martha illuminates her past and present in this ambitious project - 14 songs and 2 continents, awash in dark and moody tones, saturated with strong, defiant characters, overflowing with grit and soul, sprinkled with the occasional honky tonk respite, all generously infused with her own authentic southern groove.
"SOUTHERN WHITE LIES" is an Americana tapestry that weaves together her Appalachian birthright, soul and struggles. Martha's voice and songs are both intimate and powerful – taking listeners on a twangy - heart-pounding ride through a range of country, blues, folk and bluegrass, steered by a band with extremely impressive acoustic chops. A Southern Gothic Folk Opera searching for self-discovery, a sense of place, veracity and Martha’s musical taproot. The album is filled with mature mountain twang, crackerjack dobro, fiddle, banjo, guitar, resonator, mandolin and double bass - awash with beautiful harmonies and backing vocals throughout.
"A must have album that gives you an honest musical orgasm !!! Straight to the top of the Americana / blues / roots scene" (Beale Street). Evoking the expressive power or Guthrie, Dylan or Lucinda ...every song come from the heart. (Roots Highway). Loretta Lynn would be proud. Martha has set the benchmark very high. (Rocking Magpie)
Long Way from Home CD
"All the songs were written by Martha, who plays her part with determination and conviction, freshness and an obvious deep love for these sounds. It is this spirit that pervades all ten songs, making the album a success and one of the most enjoyable in recent times. We experience an alternation of truly reflective, poetic and solid honky tonk, united by the common denominator of the talent and warmth of Texas Martha. This band is a must to mark in your agenda and see in concert (Remo Ricalone, Lonestar Times)
