Martha Johnson


You can take Martha out of the Muffins, but not the Muffins out of Martha. After thirty years and ten albums (three of which were co-produced with Daniel Lanois), Martha Johnson has recorded her first ever solo album featuring songs written in her distinctive style with artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Will Whitwham (the Wilderness of Manitoba), Alister Johnson (Grand Analog), Hill Kourkoutis (Hill and The Sky Heroes) and, of course, Mark Gane (Martha and the Muffins). Martha’s career has had many highlights including opening for Roxy Music at Wembley Arena in London, winning a Juno for Single of the Year for international hit song Echo Beach and selling 250,000 copies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland of a song called Troy that she co-wrote with the German hip hop group Die Fantastischen Vier. More recently, she has begun co-writing with other recording artists including Ghost Caravan.

“It’s always been about the creativity and the songwriting.”

“It seems like every week there’s another story in the New York Times about Canada’s pop mastery. Indeed, Canadian rock stars are on fire. For the first time since Martha and the Muffins, it’s cool to be a Canadian rocker.” – Toronto Star
