BIO (English)

She has written songs for Georg Benson and Randy Crawford. Has recorded back-up vocals for Celine Dion, Mary J. Blige, Jewel, and Joan Osborne. The New York scene treats her as "the next big thing" in music.

Now Audrey Martells has lined up her very first solo tour in Europe. Her repertoire is a blend of Jazz Standards and originals that sounds exactly like Audrey lives her life: strong, vulnerable, joyful. Although Martells spent the first seven years of her life in England, her accent is distinctly American. Her voice is powerful and agile at the same time, her style is steeped in soul, her rhythm anchored in the earthiness or her jamaican ancestry. The press puts her in the same realm as Erykah Badu and Tina Turner. "Songwriting so good it freaks me out," writes Frank Gutch (Angel Fire Online Music Review), before finishing with, "Way above fivestars even on a five star scale!"

BIO (German)

Sie hat Lieder für George Benson und Randy Crawford geschrieben. Für Celine Dion, Mary J. Blige, Jewel und Joan Osborne Back-up Vocals gesungen. Mit ihrer eigenen Band wird sie in der New Yorker Szene als "the next big thing" gehandelt.

Jetzt kommt Audrey Martells erstmals als Solo Künstlerin nach Europa. Sie präsentiert ein Repertoire an Jazz Standards und Eigenkompositionen, das so klingt wie diese Frau ihr Leben lebt: kraftvoll, verwundbar, lebensfroh. Obwohl Martells die ersten 7 Jahre ihres Lebens in England verbrachte, ist ihr Akzent glasklar amerikanisch. Ihre Stimme hat zugleich Power und Agilität, ihr Stil ist vom Soul engefärbt, ihr Rhythmus verankert in der Erdigkeit jamaikanischer Vorfahren.  Die Presse nennt Martells in einem Atemzug mit Erykah Badu und Tina Turner. "Songwriting so good it freaks me out," schreibt Frank Gutch (Angel Fire Online Music Review), und meint noch zum Abschluss: "Way above five stars even on a five star scale!"
