Tina Boonstra returns with her new single 'Martha', the first from her full length debut album. 'Martha' is a song of hope to sing when there seems to be no hope. Taking influences from The Lumineers, R.E.M and early Sheryl Crow.
About writing songs for the new album Tina says, "I thought I had found my niche in songwriting, but these songs have pulled me down a different path. I've pushed back a lot. Stubbornly resisting the invitation to explore what’s around this bend.
When I finally succumbed, I’ve found stories of friendships and sisterhood, of heartache, love and of loss. To be honest, I’ve found it very uncomfortable to sit with some of these songs. To really listen to what they were saying. But when I finally did, I found it hard to ignore. Jesus said, ‘I am the life’ and if these songs are life, then maybe these songs are Jesus.
I’m really looking forward to exploring these songs, if we’re lucky maybe they’ll explore us too."
