Music // Preview // Christina Martin at Milo Bar // 3.03.16

Milo Bar is the place to be on Thursday, 3rd March, as award-winning singer-songwriter Christina Martin is set to kick off her biggest UK tour to date in honour of the release of her 5th studio album, It’ll Be Alright.

Having previously been described as an “alt-country” artist, this album is Martin’s attempt to explore new sounds and create what has been called her most accessible album to date. The songs on the album feature Martin’s signature country twang, while incorporating a more classic rock/pop edge, which has earned her comparisons to the sounds of Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. The resulting product is an album filled with unique and catchy tunes. Martin’s album brings the 80s back into today’s music scene, where strikingly similar radio hits seem to dominate the charts. It’ll Be Alright is like a breath of fresh in comparison, and is definitely worth a listen if you’re looking for a new sound to experience.

Martin has described the latest single from the album, ‘You Ran From Me,’ which also features a beautifully shot video, as a song “about taking chances.” This is a sentiment that can summarize Martin’s latest release, and it’s definitely paid off.
