Marta is an italian songwriter, singer and strumentist who, in the last ten years, has been touring and collaborating with many international musicians and songwriters - she began singing with the Australian-Italian group Micevice, and since 2004 key member of John Parish band (PJ Harvey, Eels, Tracy Chapman, etc.). She's also well known for her collaboration with the Australian songwriter Hugo Race in their outfit Sepiatone (Desvelos IT, Minty Fresh rec. Usa), for touring as keyboard player and vocalist in the latest band formation of Hugo's True Spirit. Now based in Berlin she wrote and releases her new solo album “About Anything” with Solaris Empire and Desvelos Record, produced here together with Dugald Jayes, and in Bristol with John Parish.
Beside singing, Marta plays piano, rhodes, hammond, synth, guitar, percussions - she likes to explore a wide range of electronic and analogic sounds; her original style combines minimal arrangements and a "unique kind of playing, stumbling unpredictably between delicacy and distortion" Critics used comparison as such Francoise Hardy , Hope Sandoval, Dusty Springfield to describe the unmistakable character of her voice which with its "indifferent intensity, evokes the slightly disquieting atmosphere of a road movie in slow motion" commenting on the delicate soul and psychedelic tangents of her songs.
Her more recent collaborations as vocalist are on recordings by the jazz ambient duo The Dining Rooms, on the upcoming Lilium aka Pascal Humbert's album (Woven Hand). In Berlin at the moment she is collaborating with the electronic artist Sebastian Meissner (Klimek).
