If Mavis Staples and The Black Keys had an offspring and Sharon Jones were the Auntie, it would sound like Samantha Martin.
Samantha Martin has released one solo album, one full band album as Samantha Martin and The Haggard and performed across Canada.
The latest incarnation of this artist, as she refines her craft results in “gorgeous triple part harmonies and distinct guitar tones” (Exclaim! Feb 2014) In this new gospel infused, blues and soul formation, Martin is set to release an EP in the Spring of 2014 titled, “Mississippi Sun”. The music is reminiscent of The Staples Singers or Sharon Jones – its soulful, gospel, blues. Samantha’s voice is huge, she is not.
