Description

An Americana tour de force with bona fide Southern swagger, Martha Fields announces her new album "HEADED SOUTH". Martha's last two albums were in the top 10 best of the year albums on the EUROAMERICANA CHART. With her musical roots running deep in Appalachia, Texas and Oklahoma, her sound reflects this diverse DNA charting her own Americana route.

Illuminating her past and present via 12 songs and 2 continents, Martha wrote, self-produced and recorded this 'straight from the heart' opus while in lock-down in the SW of France - with her band of hotshot pickers and then mixed in Nashville by Sean Sullivan (Butcher Shoppe Studio). This Texas Troubadour embodies a hundred years of Country, Folk, Bluegrass and Rock'n'Roll history, in a spirit of authenticity and palpable sincerity! At a young age, she shared the stage with Ricky Skaggs and Merle Travis and later even some whiskey soaked nights with Gus Hardin and the rest is history. For the last 6 years, Martha has toured extensively across Europe from the UK to France, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland and even Lithuania. She's played some of the most prestigious Country/Americana festivals and stages across Europe such as Southern Fried Perth, Scotland, Country2Country, 02, London, UK, Craponne sur Arzon, France, Glasgow Americana and many others. Martha's seemingly absinthe tinged vocals and her dauntless songwriting are complimented by twangy guitars, dobro, banjo, mandolin, violin, Hammond Organ, piano, even some brass.

A Southern Gothic Americana tapestry, Martha's voice and songs are intimate yet powerful taking you on a twangy emotional rollercoaster ride through a range of country, blues, folk and bluegrass steered by a band with extremely impressive acoustic chops.
