A singer/songwriter with a powerful voice and range, Martha Sterling-Golden was an opening act for the Emmy-winning songwriter and performer Bill Chinnock at Maineís larger venues. She has performed around the northeastern US as a solo performer and in rock bands. Her songs and vocals have a powerful, unflinching intimacy.
Life took a detour when Sterling-Golden was chosen to run a global women's leadership program, but the yearning for music would not go away. Martha has come back to music with a drive to try new things, and a strong catalogue of new, original songs. Her first full-length disc, "Norumbega Fault", is in the planning stages with Grammy-nominated engineer and renowned indie musician & songwriter Jud Caswell, and scheduled for release in late spring of 2013.
I love this song.

I believe you are a brilliant lyricist (and poet). It seems to me that there is a rhythmic conflict (in the third stanza) between the lyric and the melody in "Tell Me" - a rush to fit the two. Perhaps if I had not enjoyed the absolute perfection in "Right Next To Me", I wouldn't have noticed the small glitch. Just a thought from a novice who supports wholly your energized spirit and your gifts. Go Martha!!!

I'm no music critic, but I really liked both songs. You can't go wrong with with songs about unrequited love. "Tell Me," aches with the inevitability of a love lost despite both wanting to save that love. The guitar playing on both songs was very compelling and I would love to hear just some solo guitar pieces. The artist's voice is reminiscent of Janis Joplin, without Janis' nasal huskiness. The artist might try to mellow down a bit her vocals. Overall, a strong and vibrant offering.
