Album Notes
Martine might have lead different lives in Switzerland, Montréal and Seattle, but she always found a stage to call home.

Her calling for music came early on in a house where everyone was encouraged to play an instrument. After years of violin and singing in the middle school choir, she started writing songs, mainly influenced by Bruce Springsteen’s music. As teenage years passed, she got her first gig with a fellow guitarist friend. They formed the voice and guitar duo Listen2 and successfully played the college music circuit. At 27, Martine gave in to her passion and enrolled in the jazz program of her Swiss hometown of Lausanne (EJMA Jazz School), training which she pursued in Seattle (Cornish College of the Arts) and Montréal where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Music in 2003 from the University of Montréal.

Today, a regular in the Seattle Jazz community, she regales her audiences with a brilliant mix of pop compositions, jazz standards and covers. Her uncanny candid stage presence and superb voice is earning her a growing fan base, who has been requesting an album for many years. Here it is: produced by MTV Nominee Yakup Trana, home made from Rogue Islands Studios to RFI mastering studios in Seattle, with the help of numerous friends and family members –Swiss Girl, a reflection of her evolution, showcases pop/rock original songs, with a few incursions in bossa nova and jazz. An energetic, fresh, sensitive, well rounded debut album. Truly a great listen that makes us want to dance and sing along or shed a tear depending on the moment. “Swiss Girl has a song for everyone; each of them has a story – which fits into mine, and hopefully also into yours.”
