IMG_0615Martha Wainwright is perfect to represent Quebec in The Great Canadian Song Quest competition. Not only because she was raised in Montreal, Quebec, in the famous Wainwright family, but she is an extremely multi talented and versatile artist on her own. Standing in the shadow of her more famous brother for some time, she has now totally earned a place in the business, doing her own thing. Her songs are little stories and she tells them convincingly, with all her heart and soul. Whether it is opera or folk, new or old, french or english, she can handle it beautifully and puts her own mark on it in the process.

Recently she started a collaboration with Hal Willner to make a live record of rare Edith Piaf songs, wich will be released november 9th, 2009. 

Martha has always been influenced by Piaf and she sings those songs like no one else. See for yourself in these videos, taken in Brussels (Belgium), in the summer of 2009.

If Martha is chosen to write a song for Quebec, you can be sure she will put her heart and soul into it and it will be very fitting and beautiful and emotional…

 

 

So vote for Martha, everyone!! http://www.cbc.ca/radio2/songquest/index.html
