Roots and blues powerhouse Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar strike a chord with new release

"... she is utterly unique, the blood of a past era of music is running through her veins and when she sings she'll stop you dead in your tracks.” – Justin Stone, Fatea Magazine
Toronto based ensemble Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar have quickly been recognized as rising stars in the Canadian roots and blues music scene since the February 17th release of their exceptional recording Send the Nightingale. With extensive airplay and reviews from around the world, critics are hailing Martin as "a voice that comes along once in a generation" (Bob Mersereau) and "raw, urgent lead vocals that invite favorable comparisons to those of Bonnie Tyler.” (Duane Verh, Roots Music Report)
Within a few weeks Send the Nightingale was featured on The Alternate Root Top Ten Tracks of the Week, and has reached #3 on the !earshot National Folk/Roots/Blues charts with several positions on top 30 charts from stations across Canada, showing no sign of slowing down.
Here's what some of the reviewers have to say:
“O, boy! From the first notes of this explosive album, I was excited. I remained so as the album unfolded over its almost 40 minutes, and then I hit play again and was just as engaged the second time through. And the fifth… It is still early, but Send the Nightingale is going to be one of my favourite albums this year.”
– Donald Teplyske, Fervor Coulee
“Listening to Send The Nightingale, one can only wonder why Toronto based singer Samantha Martin isn’t already a major star. This can be said without a hint of exaggeration as Send The Nightingale presents a talent fully formed to glorious effect. This lady owns a full understanding of what  ‘soul’ really means and a world-weary voice with the kind of power and control to get the job done properly.”
– Rod Nicholson, Scene Magazine
“The ultimate joy of reviewing new albums is occasionally getting totally besotted by the first listen…the album will make you shudder, extract every sinew of raw emotion and leave you blessed with an experience of exploring what makes music an important medium for self-expression.”
– Three Chords and the Truth (UK)
Send the Nightingale is available on iTunes and at
