Martha Wainwright

Thanks to Snow Patrol, I have been introduced to her unique voice, which I like very much. However since I know nothing of her prior to her duet with Snow Patrol, I would like to know more about her. So are there any fans of hers here? I am listening to some of her songs on her myspace page and I am hooked. Who is this lady, how long has she been around, etc...?

Ok, with a title like that I have to go listen.

She does indeed have a gorgeous voice.

"Poetry is no place for a heart that's a whore" is one of the greatest lyrics ever written


Things I know about Martha Wainwright:

1) She's Rufus's sister
2) Her self-titled album is her first, and it's been getting great reviews
3) She is a great songwriter and singer

I love the duet with Snow Patrol. The boyfriend has her album and I've been very impressed with what I've heard from it.

She's an amazing talent. I think a better writer than her brother.

I'm a huge fan; her (self-titled) album was one of my favourite releases that year. Her voice is incredible.

I've also seen Martha live when she toured Australia last year; she's a great performer. The concert was even more enjoyable when she invited people to come and dance in front of the stage mid-way, which I did,
