Canadian powerhouse musician Christina Martin is gearing up to bring her latest album Storm for her first UK headline tour since 2018. Tickets are available here, dates below:
- 1st March Alrewas – The Bank Coffeehouse
In September 2023, Canadian singer-songwriter Christina Martin launched her long-anticipated latest album, the compellingly titled Storm. Riding on the wave of four varied and vigorous singles, Storm is Martin’s most ambitious release yet. Crafted meticulously over many years, it shows Martin at her most majestic, boasting anthemic hooks and lavish orchestral strings. Yet it’s also a deeply personal piece, wearing its heart on its sleeve. It guides us down the long winding road to recovery – taking Martin’s own experiences and making them exquisitely relatable. Aptly named, Storm is a whirling, grandiose beast that’s bombastic, beautiful, traumatic and triumphant all at once.
Speaking about her return to the UK, Christina says: ‘I really look forward to, and appreciate touring in the UK. With no shortage of stellar live music to choose from, UK audiences have always pushed me to be in my best form musically.
‘There’s an appreciation for the stripped-down versions of my recorded music, and UK audiences tolerate my Canadian quips! I’m looking forward to many lovely laughs, both on and off stage.’
Christina Martin is a powerhouse musician, songsmith, and performer hailing from the windswept East Coast of Canada. Her music dances effortlessly through Pop, Rock, Folk and Americana traditions but stays deftly unchained by any one label, unafraid to venture into stranger waters. From her Austin-inflected 2002 debut Pretty Things, to the sweeping cinematic dreamscape of 2018’s Impossible to Hold, Martin is an artist who is constantly shifting, and constantly evolving. And like all her material, latest album Storm boasts a backbone of raw honesty about the human condition. Be they personal confessions or narrative tales, each song is lovingly crafted, and hits in the heart like a well-thrown punch. With a string-drenched new album and a run of iconic award winning music videos, Christina will tour the United Kingdom in 2024 accompanied by co-producer and guitarist Dale Murray. This is a singer-songwriter that delivers a live music experience not to be missed.
Christina Martin will be touring the UK in February/March 2024. Tickets here.
