Martin is an old soul with a versatile writing style that allows her to cross genres as she glides easily between Soul, folk, rock, blues, and country, all the while maintaining her unique sound.
Currently she is busy recording her 3rd studio album which is scheduled for release later in 2023.
Lee's storytelling writing style is what intrigues her fans and keeps them captivated.
