Winner of the 2012 Music Nova Scotia Female Artist Recording of the Year for her latest album Sleeping With A Stranger:  “It’s one of those rare albums where you have to listen to it all in one sitting. Like a good book that’s hard to put down, this ‘Sleeping With A Stranger’ tickles the ears and within three bars you’re completely hooked.” Americana UK  October 2012

Christina Martin is a multi-award winning Canadian singer-songwriter whose style has been described as an effortless union between alt-country and rock with pop sensibility. With her sexy girl-next-door beauty, vivacious personality, brightly sparkling voice and unerring love of hooky choruses and peppy rhythms, Christina Martin should’ve easily slid into the cool waters of modern pop—if only pop hadn’t become a pimp for our shallowest tastes and sentiments.”  (Edmonton’s Vue Weekly Sept 2010).

Born in Florida, raised in Eastern Canada, Martin left University and moved to Austin Texas in the summer of 1999. In the Fall she moved to Salzgitter Germany where she collaborated on a commercial pop project, marking her first experience singing in a professional studio.  In May 2000 she returned to Austin to explore performing and song writing.  Following her role as supporting vocalist and dancer for the Austin high-energy rock bank Young Heart Attack in 2001, Martin launched her solo career in 2002 with an opening slot for Wilco and her debut album Pretty Things. Shortly after the album’s release, she returned home to Eastern Canada and had commercial success with two of her songs placed in the award-winning British-Canadian two-part drama Sex Traffic (2004) and the TV drama series Snakes and Ladders (2004).

Sleeping With A Stranger (2012) is Martinʼs fifth and newest award-winning album of 12 original songs, and reflects the artist’s coming of age lyrically and musically. “Itʼs one of those rare albums where you have to listen to it all in one sitting. Like a good book that’s hard to put down, ʻSleeping With A Strangerʼ tickles the ears and within three bars you’re completely hooked.” (Americana UK October 2012). In Fall 2012 the album produced by Dale Murray won her 2012 Music Nova Scotia Female Recording of the Year, was nominated for 3 East Coast Music Awards, and her company was nominated for Music Nova Scotia Company of the Year. Her song What I Always Knew was placed in the CBC television drama Heartland and her single Falling For You was voted onto the CBC Radio2 Top 20 countdown, where it remained for 5 months.

Martin is currently preparing for a highly anticipated European release in Germany, Austria and Switzerland September 13 for Sleeping With a Stranger. With over 60 scheduled concerts in mainland Europe, a performance atRolling Stone Weekender, a publicity partnership with Oktober Promotion in Hamburg, and an endorsement from the esteemed Duesenberg Guitars in Hannover Germany, this roots-rock singer-songwriter will tour extensively using her home base as Artist in Residence in the city of Dachau Germany into 2014.
