Album Notes
‘The River’ metaphorically speaks of an internal journey and the complex emotions regarding aging, the search for ones' true purpose and hope.
We are of the the earth and water, and intrinsically connected to nature and it's perfect cycles.
It takes a conscious decision to care for our natural world, as we would ourselves and all we hold precious and love.
A portions of the proceeds from this song will benefit the organization www.AmericanRivers.org

Her deep roots in traditional folk and story telling shine through every one of her original works. Ira Gordon—Host of Santa Fe's KBAC radio—calls Martha "the closet thing to Joni Mitchell that Santa Fe has."

"Flute and cello snuggle up to that guitar just right, but it's that voice that hooked me. Authentic, unpretentious and mildly intoxicating".... John C. Slade, Musician

“I love your music” ... Sam Shepard, Playwright and Actor.

" Each song feels as though she's written it just for you--to tell you something important about life."... Gregg Braden, NY Times best selling author

“ Martha Reich has a great voice. She is flat out open and honest, and just a bit mesmerizing”. ...J.W. McClure, Victory Music Review

“Martha Reich sings with the fierce vocal Grace of a James Taylor and the Soulful emotion of a Judy Collins. Her sensitive rendition of "Hank" Mancini's 'Moon River' would touch the very heart of Audrey Hepburn herself, had she experienced this tender LISTENING pleasure. Perspective words, combined with penetrating sounds, emanate from Martha's acoustic guitar, sure to reverberate the Heartstrings of any awakened Soul.”
- Kimberley Ashley, Fashion & Textile Designer

"Time stood still and even when the rain did start to drizzle during her set, nobody dared move till each and every song had been played out in full.
Songs such as Elements, Wait For Me, Fadeaway, Gravity and the wonderful I'd Rather Be Surprised, were played with a sense of serenity and unbridled emotion mixed with a flavour of the deep southern/Latin American search for honesty and memorable groove. In all these aspects Ms. Reich did not disappoint.
A touch of the exotic on an inclement day in Liverpool, there really is no finer feeling. Ms. Reich added a rich texture to the Bank Holiday weekend with her appearance at the Liverpool Acoustic Garden at the Kazimier".
Liverpool Acoustic Gardens, Kazimier, Liverpool. -Ian D. Hal

With vocals reminiscent of icons like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez and an originality impossible to duplicate, Martha’s songs possess an exquisite poetry, capturing the depth of personal and universal subjects, while tapping into something true and real for all that listen deeply with their minds as well as hearts. Inspired by the contradictions of everyday life; Anchored by the truth and beauty of nature’s elements, Martha is an authentic troubadour. Martha delivers her songs on guitar, ukelele, keyboards, Dulcimer and Banjo with beauty, intelligence and the honesty that gives new meaning to similar moments in our own lives.
