“Superb song writing, profound lyrics, incredible musicianship from Martha D. Lewis”
DJ Ritu, A World In London

“Martha D. Lewis spreads her powerful vibes on the airwaves with her jazzy-blues anthem Liars Club. With haunting lyrics and captivating performance, Lewis brings light to the destructive power of greed. An emotional gem that inspires, motivates, and reminds us that there is always hope.”

“Her full, dark voice and the accompaniment of an evident mixture of artpop, jazz bar elements, friendly soft rock and a pinch of blues feeling. Kate Bush in low pitch? Stevie Nicks as lounge – pop – chanteuse?”
Westzeit (Germany)

“.. listen to this tender record, full of vulnerable, beautiful songs and you will discover a great singer who, surrounded by competent musicians, gives an insight into the vulnerable sides of her own life but at the same time also shows herself to be combative and encourages to embrace the real, pure life with all its emotions and to experience it to the fullest.”

Past Reviews

“A distinctly live wire of musical independence and a formidable voice. Lewis has a yearning upturn to her voice to go with its majestic and clamorous power. The music of Martha Lewis is a unique cultural crossover driven by a charismatic leader, that is as much about changing London as it is about Mediterranean roots and that burns a volatile fuel of European folk music, modern technology, pop influence and jazz improvisation”.
John Fordham Guardian

“Here, World Music collides with the ‘Dark side of the moon’ era of Pink Floyd. Powerful drums and mantra like vocal delivery highlight the feeling of spirituality which infuses the pieces.”

“Martha Lewis’ Cafe Aman project marries the urban blues of the cafes of Athens in the 1920s with urban London. Martha grew up in London and her dance- friendly world music, takes in tango, classical music and Greek rhythms and provides a nostalgic and lyrical background to her striking vocal lead.”
