The wonderfully talented Martha Wainwright is heading to Australia with her band for a national tour beginning late May 2013. Fresh from warmly received performances in Europe and North America, Martha will represent material from across her career to date – show stoppers from her emotionally-charged debut album to her acclaimed tribute to Edith Piaf, and to Martha’s latest LP of original material, Come Home To Mama.
Come Home to Mama was co-produced by the highly regarded Yuka C. Honda of Cibo Matto, and displays the passionate angst of her 2005 eponymous debut coupled with the twisted pop of its follow up I Know You’re Married, Yuka and Martha have created an edgy, multi-instrumental soundscape that showcases Martha’s raw, confessional poetry with undeniable style and grace.
With a constantly changing timbre of depth, Martha Wainwright displays a remarkable polarity between songs of harrowing despair that also show a sense of spontaneity and playfulness. She can, within a single verse, play both angel and demon. Martha’s incredible, evocative and characterful voice will course its way through pop, soul, folk and torch.
Make sure you secure your tickets for one of this very special evening of music. Be enlightened as Martha Wainwright swoops and soars.
