About the Album

Love & Conflict, a fearless and groundbreaking album that offers Martha plenty to say outside the confines of dance/club music, but still packs killer upbeat tracks. The songs are genuinely heartfelt, and it’s difficult to brand the album and package it under one genre of music, but there’s a link, and every song carries a positive message. We move from pop/funk to soul, to pop/rock to Blues to country/soul or R&B/dance, as the album maintains the thread with Martha’s confident vocals, at times bleeding at times soaring free back to her personal roots. Martha sprawls out into blues and funk as well as psychedelia with tailor-made songs collaborating with a Canadian team, headed by Sami Basbous. "Never Enough Money's restless energy is stunning. It’s dirty and gritty with no-nonsense live blues-rock energy. It addresses greedy jerks and made me think of the Orange One in particular". The mastery of Love and Conflict is to balance Martha’s past with the present building a legacy; a deeply American one that embraces a Canadian and European flavor. It’s about good taste and quality. Mis Wash opens her voice with a conscience. The culture and identity of Love & Conflict is soul-baring and deftly mixing genres, pushing hearts and minds into listening, moving, caring, and soul-searching. In Love and Conflict, Martha frees herself and spreads the enlightenment of love, and humanity.
