The Carleton is very pleased to announce the return of Christina Martin & Band to its stage on Sunday, October 29th. Show time is a civilized 7:30 PM (come for dinner, our new chef is fantastic!) and tickets are $20 advanced or $25 at the door.
Back recently from touring UK and Canada promoting her latest single, Lungs Are Burning. With a new album coming soon, Halifax gets to hear her preview the new material early!
Martin began writing and recording her own music while slogging it out on the Austin, Texas bar scene in the early 2000s, before returning home to Canada in 2003. Since 2008 she has been relentlessly recording and touring in Canada and overseas, building connections the old-fashioned way, at venues big and small, singing songs about loss and love, anxiety and perseverance. Along the way, she has earned multiple East Coast Music and Music Nova Scotia Awards. Her songs have been featured in films, on television, and she’s performed at music festivals around the world (Rolling Stone Weekender Festival, Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival, International Folk Alliance, Reeperbahn Festival, Canada Music Week).
Christina lives in rural Nova Scotia with her husband and musical partner Dale Murray. They share a life that’s simple, honest and adorned with the joy of music. The latest single Lungs Are Burning is another powerful step in their remarkable musical journey.
