Bio

Lara Martin is a singer songwriter and lover of art and artists of many kinds. She has been involved in a myriad of creative adventures in her life which have included but are not limited to: Attending theatre school in Toronto, travelling to remote and some have said dangerous locals, and singing at people’s celebrations of love (aka being a wedding singer). She has been writing songs for a while out of a desire to tell stories and because of the more intangible experience of random melodies and rhythms suddenly and sometimes annoyingly becoming stuck in her head. She has no explanation other than to say it has been for the most part a joyful experience.

Lara is especially attracted to soul and jazz music because of the rawness of emotion, and the spiritual undercurrent. She is inspired by the soul and folk tradition of music with socially conscious ideals, and does her best to carry on that tradition in some of her song writing. Admittedly though, she sometimes writes about minor personal crisis’, just because she believes that matters too.

Lara is grateful to every sincere artist; lover, mother and idealist that endeavour to in some big or small way inspire the heart and uplift the spirit. The list is too lengthy to mention in its entirety but she has much love and admiration for her musical heroes Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Louis Armstrong Joni Mitchell, Edith Pief and all those who sing in the shower at the top of their lungs with pure unapologetic joy.
