Samantha Martin on Wild South

11016126_1066292580064361_8685156605865036521_oBubbling up from the cauldron of roots Americana music, Toronto based singer Samantha Martin is an artist of extraordinary power, gravitas, and deep-seated emotion. On first listen, one is immediately struck by the awesome presence and sheer magnitude of her other worldly voice. Cigarette-ravaged and whiskey-soaked in the extreme, Martin’s pipes are capable of conveying an infinite range of emotions, bringing one to tears in one instance and in the next uplifting one’s soul with an empowered declaration of hope, faith, and desire. Samantha chats with DJ Aerlie Wild about her new album, Send The Nightingale, and spins 5 tracks that have inspired her:

Ike & Tina Turner – Feel Good – Feel Good
The Staple Singers – I Had A Dream – I Had A Dream
Ann Peebles – 99 Lbs – Straight  From The Heart
Candi Staton – I’m Just A Prisoner – I’m Just A Prisoner
Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – Fish In The Dish – Naturally
