Biography

Singer-songwriters are meant to trade in whimsical pleasures, in the soft strums of a guitar, in worlds so delicate and small they could shatter at a single touch. Martha Wainwright doesn't trade alongside them. Back with a second record that's both tender and tough, beautiful and brutal, and simmering with invention and confidence, Martha forgot to read the rulebook. Either that, or ...

5.0 out of 5 stars She could soon outshine her brother... 14 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Martha opening for her brother Rufus and I was won over on the spot....
This is her first EP released in the UK and demonstrates her incredible range - from the fierce title track to the beautiful and smoky closer, How Soon. I can't recommend her music highly enough. Pick this up as a taster for her first full-length album, coming early next year.
Here's what the Sunday Times said about BMFA: 'You know that song that comes along once in a blue moon and takes your breath, and steals your heart, away? Well, this is that song. No blue editing pencil has been wielded over its lyric, and long before Wainwright blasts out the chorus with her husky, emotion-shredding voice, you are left in no doubt that she means what she's singing. "You say my time here has been some sort of joke," she rasps about her move to
New York and the time she's taken to come to the boil, "Some sort of incubating period/For when I really come around." The second time she hits the bridge, she rushes the words as the backing of acoustic guitar and upright bass struggles to keep up. The effect is thrilling.'

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It's rare that you hear a song (or singer) who stops you in your tracks - hits you with a tune so filled with pain and truth that it feels like some sort of musical open wound. "B.M.F.A" is such a song.

Like many I kind of stumbled on this American 5-track EP CD single around the time of its release (on Zoe 021 432 007-2) and I've been quietly in love with it since 2005. Stylistically its part k.d. Lang - part Shawn Colvin - part Rosanna Cash - part Beth Orton - a wonderful set of songs. "B.M.F.A", "I Will Internalize", "When The Day Is Short" and "It's Over" are originals with "How Soon" being a cover of a 1947 Jack Owens classic ballad (lyrics above)...

Strange, moving and gorgeous...pick it up soon...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a song to be missed or dismissed 7 Jun 2005
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There are almost certainly people who will be offended by the lyrical content of this song. And maybe rightly so. But in my opinion when such words (as the title succinctly states) are sung by an artist like Martha Wainwright who rips the words angelically from her soul and delivers them to the listener with great sincerity...the power such words have to offend is greatly diminished. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if it was her intention to explore and challenge how certain words make us react in certain pre-determined ways. The tragedy is not that such a titled song could be released, but that it could be dismissed out of hand. Not a song to be missed or dismissed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real artist to watch. 23 Feb 2005
By Andre Therien - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw her live a few months ago, in 2004. Absolutely riveting! Original and personal, authentic and not commercially oriented, strong and intense. This CD lets you in. Wait for the rest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like father like daughter... 16 Mar 2010
By Andrew Ellington - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Some have labeled Martha Wainwright's vocal stylings as ear-piercing, going so far as to liken her to cat-screeching or nails on a chalkboard. If that is how you see it, then that is how you see it. I personally adore the cracks in her voice and to apparent strains she gives each of her words, for they add such emotional depth and clarity to her lyrics. She is a true artist (but, I mean her father IS Loudon Wainwright, so that figures...RIGHT?) and it shows all over this beautifully tailored EP.

For me, the standout here is the salon inspired `How Soon', which places Martha in the company of a piano and lends her a Norah Jones' vibe that flourishes under her coarse vocal delivery. The song has an edge to it that perfectly contradicts the softness of the piano.

`When the Day is Short' is another song that I really love. It has a spunk to it that really engages the listener. There is a soft and happy vibe to the song that, again, proves a perfect contradiction to Martha's broken vocals. `I Will Internalize' is a song that definitely plays to Martha's vocal strengths. The musical arrangement is less whimsical and more intimate, channeling the harshness of her voice into the sharpness of the guitar. It's a stunningly moving musical experience.

The title track, `BMFA', is no where near as edgy as it needed to be to sell the `necessity' of that title. It's a decent song, but it is lacking (despite the fact that her voice is marvelous here).

For me, `It's Over', is the worst song here. This is the one track where Martha really tries to go somewhere distinct and make some kind of different choices musically, but it just doesn't work. It comes off forced and misplaced. I can see what she was trying to do, but it just doesn't pull it off entirely.

As a whole, this is a commendable effort. For an EP it is strong. I love her work and will laud her as an artist for a long time to come. If you aren't familiar with her then this is a nice place to start, for it gives you a good indication of who she is and what she is capable of. This isn't her best work, but it is solid and won't disappoint!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her voice is magnificent 22 July 2008

I love her voice and her fearlessness. She will say whatever is on her mind and she is a genius like her brother and her mom.

5.0 out of 5 stars a joy to behold 25 Jan 2005
By Joshua P. Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Martha has a gorgeous voice and wonderful stories to share. These tracks were among the best I heard last year and display how she has really come into her own as a solo artist. The production is raw and muted and does much to enhance the sheer emotionality of Wainwright's songs.
