What darkness is found
Beyond an open wood door
what light is there too
An award winning Santa Fe-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Martha Reich has performed around the world and shared stages with Melissa Crabtree, Consuelo Luz, Gregg Braden, Reverend Horton Heat and others, as well as opening for Kate Macleod and performing at the Sundance Film Festival. Originally from New England, she received an B. F. A. in illustration from Parsons School of Design and Philadelphia College of Art, but music called and she relocated to Santa Fe in 1999 where she has since released five CDs including the award winning album entitled BRAVE BIRD.
Her 2018 release, BRAVE BIRD, was described as “stunning and heartbreaking” by Americana Highways and earned her a Gold Medal for Female Vocalist in the 2018 Global Music Awards, as well as the LA Critics Award for Best Folk Artist. Often compared to Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez, Reich is deeply inspired by nature and her unique style features an honesty and vulnerability that evokes “a sound almost woven out of the earth.” She is often joined on stage and on recordings by longtime collaborator, cellist Michael Kott, who “presents the cello as a portrayal of infinite compassion”.
Reich won the 2019 New Mexico Music Award for Best Singer-Songwriter Song ‘FADE AWAY’ and a Clouzine international Music Award for Best Indie Album 'BRAVE BIRD'. She previously won Global Music Awards in 2017 and 2016, The Southwest Independent Music Award in 2015 and a 2014 New Mexico Music Award for Best Folk Song.
Martha is also a Certified Music Practitioner, playing for Hospital patients, those in Hospice and people living with Alzheimer's and Cancer.
Her music can be heard on PANDORA Radio as well as national and international radio stations.
