Liner notes by Mike Segal
I write songs. Yes, I play saxophone. But I also pen tunes with lyrics. I love the sound of rich, lush harmonies, and I’m fascinated with the seemingly endless possibilities that English, my mother-tongue, offers. But that can be a problem. My lyrics tend to be wordy; long, twisting metaphors that can leave an impression of rhetoric on steroids. And they’re often wrapped in a gush of chords that are, perhaps, at times a touch too cloying.
Martina’s songs are the opposite. Which is why I like them so much. Her melodies, and their harmonic accompaniments, are easy-flowing and catchy. But not cliché. Her lyrics are straightforward and succinct, yet not simplistic. With a creative flair that avoids the pitfalls of repetition and overstatement, she can tell a story that pulls you directly in to the heart of the matter.
Martina is a liedermacher. A troubadour in the true sense of the word. A songwriter’s songwriter.
