Om Martha Wainwright
Martha Wainwright er som datter af sanger/sangskriverne Loudon Wainwright III og Kate McGarrigle født med ekstraordinært generøse mængder musik i blodet. Tilmed er hun vokset op side om side med sin to år ældre storebror Rufus Wainwright, der jo i dén grad også har skabt sig en glorværdig karriere inden for musikken. Martha Wainwright er dermed blevet rigt stimuleret ud i det musikalske, og allerede som helt ung lånte hun sin stemme ud til diverse familiemedlemmers projekter – og som 23-årig EP-debuterede hun i 1999 med en selvbetitlet sag. Efter sine drama-studier i Montreal flyttede hun til New York, og hér begyndte det at gå stærkt med musikken – eksempelvis mødte hun Brad Albetta, der således producerede hendes ligeledes selvbetitlede debutalbum (2005). Albetta producerede også toeren “I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too” (2008), hvorpå flere af Martha Wainwrights celebre familiemedlemmer medvirkede – lige som det var tilfældet med folk som Pete Townshend (The Who) og Garth Hudson (The Band). Dette album blev gennembruddet, der banede vejen for omfattende turnéer i USA, Canada, Europa og Australien – og lange rækker samarbejder med alskens aktuelle bands og musikere. Siden har Martha Wainwright fået et par sønner (sammen med Brad Albetta), lige som det også er blevet til yderligere to album, hvoraf sidste års meget roste “Goodnight City” er det seneste.

Interview med Martha Wainwright
What can the audience expect from the show?
“I’ve brought a small back up band from Toronto. They are also “Bernice”. We’ve been on the road for about six months. We do a lot of material from the new record but also older records.”

What merch do you bring?
“I bring t shirts and sweatshirts, CDs and vinyl but I also custom make t-shirts and sweatshirts every night that I paint and sew things on. There are usually four or five of these for each show.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“It’s hard to say. It depends on the night and the audience but newer songs can be the most fun to play. In Aarhus I’ll probably do a couple songs that are new that have never been recorded.”

How have your most recent concerts been?
“Really good. I have a good time with the band. They are new but have quickly become friends.”

How would you describe your backing band, Bernice?
“They are a band themselves who do the opening act. They are young and enthusiastic and fun to be around. Great musicians.”

What else would you like to say about Bernice?
“[They are] very special. They are doing something different which is really refreshing.”

Which live act (band and/or artist) is your favorite – and why?
“I guess my favorite show that I saw was Iggy Pop with The Stooges. It was so high energy and intense and poetic.”

How would you describe your new album, “Goodnight City”?
“Great!”

What are your plans for the autumn and winter?
“Less touring. I have two kids and I want to be home with them as much as possible.”

Anmeldercitater
“The many perspectives on Goodnight City add up to a dynamic record that speaks to the power of letting others–be they family, friends, idols, alter egos–help pull us out of and realize fuller versions of ourselves.” (The A.V. Club, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Her sixth studio album shows her versatility at its best, its songs not so much genre experiments as joyful costume changes.” (The Observer, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“The experimental edge that Wainwright has introduced with this album bodes well for the future–while she may not be writing operas like her brother, she remains one of the most intriguing, honest songwriters around today.” (MusicOMH.com, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Ultimately, variety is good for the album, but here’s the thing: Martha’s own songs can be completely riveting.” (Exclaim, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)

“Vocal gymnastics are used to convey emotion, rather than for effect, and as a result, stylistically very different songs from the likes of Beth Orton and Tune-Yards hang together perfectly.” (The Guardian, 2016 – læs hele anmeldelsen)
