Martha Wainwright

Artist Song Buy

Comment:

With Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle for parents, and Rufus for an older brother, Martha Wainwright may have had a musical leg-up, genetically speaking — what's perhaps surprising though, given such high-profile blood ties and her college-age decision to side-track into drama, is how deftly she's managed to carve out her own unique space as a singer-songwriter. Her full-length, self-titled debut arrived in 2005, packing such melodic delights as "Factory", while a subsequent hook-up with Snow Patrol ("Set the Fire to the Third Bar") and the supremely hummable "You Cheated Me" (2008) showcased her talent for bridging the gap between leftfield and mainstream.

Martha throws a pinch of Syd and a dash of Edith into her pot, in Next Steps.
