Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar

One of the rising stars in Toronto’s roots-rock scene, Martin and her band can be seen frequently on stage at The Dakota Tavern, Toronto's most respected Americana/Roots venue. With the release of their self titled debut album, Samantha Martin and The Haggard in March 2012, the band will be taking their music on the road far beyond Toronto. Recorded in July 2011 at Toronto's Lincoln County Social Club, co-produced by the band and John Dinsmore (producer and multi-instrumentalist with Kathleen Edwards, NQ Arbuckle, Sarah Harmer) The album boldly traverses deep southern soul, roots/reggae and 50's rock n roll.

Tribute is paid to musical influences including Otis Redding and Robert Johnson, The Rolling Stones, The Staples Singers, CCR and Patsy Cline as well as Reggae artist Delroy Wilson; but the album is distinctly Samantha Martin and The Haggard. Few other artists are able to incorporate such broad genres successfully and present a cohesive sound all their own.

If Mavis Staples and The Black Keys had a child, and Sharon Jones was the Auntie, it would sound like Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar.

In July 2013 Samantha road-tested a new sound, recently named Delta Sugar. If you have ever wondered what Martin's music would sound like if it was stripped down and raw - this is your chance to hear it. The latest incarnation of this artist, as she refines her craft results in "gorgeous triple part harmonies and distinct guitar tones" (Exclaim! Feb. 2014)

In this new gospel infused, blues and soul formation, Martin is releasing an EP in April 2014 titled "Mississippi Sun". As always, Samantha's voice is huge, she is not.
