Martha Wainwright + support
“Fantastic set from the hugely underrated and greatest talent of the Wainwright clan. Full of incredible songs, old and new, that come straight from the big dark heart of American songwriting” – The Guardian
With an undeniable voice and an arsenal of powerful songs, Martha Wainwright is a beguiling performer and a refreshingly different force in music. Martha began building a buzz with her well-noted EPs, prior to her 2005 critically and commercially successful debut LP, ‘Martha Wainwright’. London’s Sunday Times included one of the songs as song of the year and Rolling Stone called it “a blistering prelude to her debut album.‘Goodnight City’ is poised to be her best record yet. This album returns to the rawness of her first release and includes songs by Martha, as well as songs written by notable artists to highlight her incredible voice. These songs are written by her friends and other great songwriters such as Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, her brother Rufus Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje, and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs.
Martha tours her music around the world to sold out audiences on several continents, and this is not surprising being daughter of American folk singer Loudon Wainwright and Canadian singer songwriter Kate McGarrigle. Martha was raised in a musically gifted family and therefore her brilliant music is a reminder of her background in folk.
“Martha Wainwright was born to be a singer and a songwriter” – WNYC
“Goodnight City sees a music return to the rawness Martha first created on her debut self-titled album” – Exclaim!

Toronto singer-songwriter Robin Dann’s Bernice project first gained notice in 2011 with the sublime adventure in soulful synth pop, What Was That.
More recently, Dann has signed with the Arts & Crafts label and has released, as Bernice, the single St Lucia. Produced by Grammy Award winner Shawn Everett, the springy, busy R&B track features Dann’s airy vocals and questions the origins of one’s peculiarities. “The song works is a reminder to myself of all the women in my family who’ve lived before me,” Dann writes, “I wonder ‘what of me is you?’”
