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.
2008, album I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too showed her great musical maturity and talent as a songwriter and her third album, San Fusils, Ni Souliers A Paris: Martha Wainwright’s Piaf Album 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, 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 including Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, her brother Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs.
Martha was born in New York City to folk legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III. She is Rufus Wainwright’s sister and half-sister to Lucy Wainwright Roche. She has spent time on the silver screen playing characters in Martin Scorsese’s Aviator and more recently in the HBO special Olive Kitteridge alongside Frances McDormand.
