...a strong and resonant voice....Breathe out. Pull up a chair and listen. Martell has lots to share.” - The Coast

ISC Semi-Finalist - 'Quiet Hearts'

With an East Coast Music Award (ECMA) nomination and two Music Nova Scotia nominations under her belt, Kristen Martell is making a name for herself in the East Coast music scene.  


Working with acclaimed songwriter, turned Producer/Engineer Gabrielle Papillon, Martell is set to release her second record in late 2022.  With Papillon's support, Martell's upcoming work explores new territory with cinematic folk pop anthems in an evolution of sound that remains true to her earthy roots.  It ventures into orchestral pop infused folk with soft vocal layers, lush soundscapes and invigorating percussion.  There’s even a special appearance by banjo picker Old Man Luedecke to keep it firmly folk!
