Album Notes
Martin has developed a reputation for creating music that effortlessly unites an alt-country sound with rock and pop sensibilities. The award-winning singer/songwriter has been attracting listeners across North America and Europe for nearly a decade now, all while releasing music via her independent label, Come Undone Records. Having quickly made a name for herself opening for artists such as Wilco while living in Austin TX, she returned to Canadaʼs East Coast to dig her heels into the music business.

Sleeping With A Stranger is Christinaʼs latest album. Engineered and produced by her husband Dale Murray in their studio, The Farm, in Port Howe, NS, it reflects the artistʼs lyrical and musical coming of age.

“Martinʼs honesty keeps me coming back to her songs," claims Bob Mersereau, author of The Top 100 Canadian Albums and The Top 100 Canadian Singles. "Whether she's singing about some pain or delight she has personally felt, or a strangers story she has found on the road. In the song “Sally” youʼll find the heartbreak of a waitress in Penticton, who bared all in a ten minute talk. Then there's “Marina,” a character from Martin's days in Austin TX, trying to run away from her heart. You can only write this stuff if you have empathy, and you only gain that from confronting the dark parts of your life. Listening to Martin's voice you'll hear a depth and commitment to genuine life stories. Someone is always searching for safety, striving for happiness against the odds, celebrating love and dealing with sadness. She can pop it up nice, too. Listen to the grand production, close harmonies and gorgeous melodies, like the Byrds-Bangles jangle of “What I Always Knew.” “Happy,” reflective, down times, all the complexities. For all of us trying to find the life we're meant to live, here's a soundtrack.”

“An exquisite voice.” -
“Sheʼs deceptively effective as a vocalist, her higher pitch so fragile sounding while pocketing something powerful that threatens to explode beyond the song structure, beyond the CD itself, beyond your speakers even.” - PopMatters
“What sets I Can Too apart though is Martin's commitment to honestly exploring complicated relationships.” - Exclaim
