Martha Wainwright

Martha Wainwright

Martha Wainwright is the daughter of folk legends Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle and sister of acclaimed singer songwriter Rufus Wainwright. Born in New York City and raised in Montreal, she spent her childhood immersed in music and often performing with her parents and later her sibling. But Martha is undoubtedly her own person, with her own sense of style, creating her own music with an extraordinary versatile and compelling voice. She has recorded a live collection of Edith Piaf songs, for example, which it's hard to imagine either of her parents doing. Martha's latest album, "Come Home to Mama," features songs inspired by matters of life and death—the death of Kate McGarrigle and the birth of Martha's first child. Says Martha: “This record is a culmination of my life experiences so far. Everything changed for me a couple of years ago and this record is a representation of that and a return to the reason I started writing songs. I’ve made this record as a motherless child and as a mother. Two things I had never been before. For me, it is a new beginning.”
