Blues Musician Barbara Martin

Over a career spanning more than twenty years, Barbara Martin has covered a lot of musical ground, unafraid to explore new territory at each turn.

In the early years, she performed country, folk, New-Wave rock and toured the singer-songwriter circuit.

But when Barbara began listening to Bessie Smith, Sippie Wallace and Billie Holiday and working with blues and jazz guitarist Mac Walter and bassist Steve Wolf in the early 90’s, she realized blues and jazz were her musical raison d'être.

Among her plentiful talents, she had found her most compelling and comfortable niche.
