Born 1991 in the hills of the ,Bündnerland’ Martina grew up with earthy, traditional Swiss folk music and was already yodelling on big stages at the age of eleven. At fourteen, Martina discovered her love for folk and pop music, Eva Cassidy, Neil Young and Laura Marling. She began performing cover songs, accompanying herself on the guitar, and composed her first song at sixteen.
Since music had become her first love, she decided to move to the valley to study in Lucerne and Basel. While in Lucerne, Martina met musicians Christian Winiker, Andi Schnellmann, and Vincent Glanzmann and in 2013 released her debut album ‚She Is Gone’ with them. In October 2015 her second album ,Pocket of Feelings’ will be published (with Jwan Steiner on the drums and Mischa Maurer at the keys). Both albums were recorded and produced by Marco Jencarelli at Soundfarm Studios in Switzerland.
