Dearest Martha, I think about you often and wish it wasn’t so long since I’ve seen you. Sometimes I listen to your music and reminisce about sitting around the round table at 42, or sitting outside my van singing in the park. When I thought about a song I’d like illustrated, Ben and I both said ‘wave machine’ at the same time. The very first time I met Ben, that night at Green Gathering we listened to you sing it - I could have been the very beginning of us. We got married, finally last year, in Saigon where we have lived for 4 years. It was magical, Cate sang us down the aisle and had an amazing wedding band of dear friends. I’m 35 weeks pregnant, our daughter is due summer Solstice... we’d been trying for 5 years so it’s a total dream come true. I wish you all the best with your film, may you continue to inspire and share your love. Always, Alyssa
Martha & her crews music & vibes have enchanted & assisted me, plus so many others i've shared it with, ever since since Grey Horse & first Small World days circa 2002. Whether in totes emosh moments, challenging seas, or in dreamy adventures, many of her songs have become go to favourites. So even though nigh on skint i feel compelled to partake. For I bet and hope the films Brill & Rewarding. Thanks, Good Luck & All Best Wishes. Peter Morgan
Hi Martha, All the best with your new project "The Tape", it sounds like a fabulous idea. I saw you at "The Spotted Mallard" in Melbourne, Australia. Such a lovely night. Your music is beautiful and it is a pleasure to support you. I look forward very much to your new album. Calum xx
Your songs are inspirational and hearing about the film and seeing the picture of the Tascam portastudio 4 track really struck a chord with me. I used this very one when I started recording 19 years ago and have had knocks in my confidence as a songwriter over the years. I just love the idea of it being created on tape and having a live analog warmth to it that you never really get in digital recordings. I can’t wait to hear the album, see the film and receive songwriting tips!
