“A POWERHOUSE BAND AND VOCALS THAT SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS”
Armed with a powerhouse vocalist and killer band, Samantha Martin & Delta gospel-infused harmonies and an ever-so-soulful horn section has garnered four Maple Blues nominations, topped the blues charts and propelled the group onto the stages of all the major Canadian festivals and clubs coast to coast.
Martin is the lead singer, songwriter and focal point of the group. A dynamic front woman, she possesses a stunning voice that is capable of summoning up tidal waves of spine-tingling emotion in one instance while delicately bringing out the nuances of a gut-wrenching lyric in the next. A torrid force of nature, night after night she takes audiences to emotional peaks while leaving them stunned with her sheer pin-you-against-the-wall power.
While Martin is a powerhouse unto herself, the vocal alchemy of Delta Sugar is not the work of a single talent. In combination with what she likes to term her “co-vocalists,” the vocal blend that Delta Sugar produces is pure, unadulterated gospel-tinged, neuron-tingling magic where the sum is even richer than the already soul-melting parts of Samantha Martin’s trademark hurricane-force vocals.
