"Like whispers from another universe...like a deep, throaty call from the center of the earth...the voice of this dynamic songstress will capture your heart and soul - from the first note, to the last."
A seasoned jazz flautist and vocalist, Marti grew up tagging along with her dad, a jazz trombonist, to rehearsals and gigs around the Pittsburgh, PA area. Following in her father’s footsteps, she became a jazz studies major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and continued her studies at Berklee College of Music.
After college, Marti spent several years in the Canary Islands, Spain, where she was intensely exposed to the rich world of Latin music. She performed with the popular Spanish group, "Mestisay," which would become great fodder for her upcoming years as a songwriter. She also toured and performed with high-caliber musicians from Cuba, Europe and South America. She took masterclasses with Jorge Pardo, saxophonist and flautist for the legendary Paco de Lucia. During this time, Marti made appearances on a number of national Spanish television shows, performed at the World’s Fair in Seville and was a special guest soloist at the Glasgow International Jazz Festival.
Since returning to the U.S., Marti has recorded with "X-Tribe" (Etherean Music), and has performed regularly with Larisa Stow (LAMA’s singer/songwriter of the year) and Joselyn and Wild Roots. Her self-titled genre-crossing debut CD was released in March of 2005.
Marti’s songs will take you on an unforgettable journey - from etheric sophistication & elegance, to blood-pumping, feel-good soundtrack-esque grooves. She seamlessly blends contemporary and traditional jazz and Latin music, weaving influences of pop, folk and world music. This adroit chameleon changes genres as effortlessly as one would change a pair of "braguitas." What are "braguitas?" Use your imagination...
