Here’s how the Ack started his review for Christina Martin’s last album:
It’s hard not to like Christina Martin. She’s charming, attractive, genuinely seems to appreciate her fans and the tradition that spawned her music, and she’s put in the kilometres needed to build a fan base.
After being enchanted and entertained by this here video for Falling For You off of her latest album Sleeping With a Stranger, I find it pretty much impossible to disagree with the Ack’s observation. A great voice paired with earnest songwriting that is world-weary yet hopeful? Pretty much always a winning combo. If you’re in Halifax you can be enchanted by Christina in person tonight as she celebrates her record release at The Carleton (w/ Kim Harris).
