Undone refers to the story being told. As you'll hear, this work is anything but Undone. It's Australian singer/songwriter, Martine Locke's third solo release and her most sophisticated work to date as she's chosen to team up with recording engineer and producer Evan Brubaker (Cake Records, Forgiveness Studios) and acclaimed musicians Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Bruce Cockburn), Vicki Randle (The Tonight Show Band), Pam Delgado (Blame Sally), Mike Grigoni (Anais Mitchell) and Darin Watkins.
Unquestionably rock, Locke brings in elements of country, blues, even a hint of gospel, to underscore the complex story lines of loss, love, endings, and passion. Twelve songs – a mixture of surging melodies, hard rocking riffs, and some sweet gems; a lyrical landscape and explosion of sound that will surprise you and bring you back again.
Dividing her time between the US and Australia, Martine has been bringing her acoustic rock/folk brand of music to the USA for the last 4 years. Releasing 8 cds in a solo capacity and with the highly successful Australian duo The Velvet Janes., and has toured with Ani DiFranco, Luka Bloom, The Cowboy Junkies and Arlo Guthrie. She has played at music festivals such as; National Women‘s Music Festival, Woodstock Folk Festival, Willamette Folk Festival, Iowa Women’s Music Festival, Portland Pride, Milwaukee Pride and Michigan Women’s Festival, Bethlehem Musikfest and Port Fairy Folk Festival with The Vevet Janes.
This Australian singer/songwriter/guitarist is a one-woman operation: publicist, manager, booking agent, record label owner, visionary, producer and artist. And in the fine tradition of hard working DYI artists, Martine continues to perform over 150 shows a year at festivals, colleges, clubs and in living rooms across the country.
‘Undone’ will be released in the US and Australia on Martine’s own record label ‘Passionfruit Produce’, a label that has to date sold in excess of 85,000 cds around the world and will be available for purchase through iTunes,CDbaby.com and martinelocke.com.
