Biography

Sally Martin's latest album,"Another Time, Another Place" was nominated Best Jazz Recording of the Year by the Washington Area Music Association. Several songs from that album have aired on famed radio broadcast "The Midnight Special" on Chicago's WFMT, which invited her to give an hour's live concert on WFMT's nationally syndicated show "Folkstage" in December 2008. The Washington Post hailed her first CD, "Journeys" as 'extraordinary” and called her “wonderfully controlled singing… both dreamy and wise.”

"Sally Martin has got it all! a sultry voice, equally at home in both English and French and elegantly sexy looks and manner. What more can you ask for? D.C. is Sally Martin country. It’s time we let the rest of the country in on what we have!"
Rich Massabny, “Arlington Weekly News TV” CHANNEL 69

She performs in English, French, German and soon Hungarian as well, reflecting her ethnic roots.
