Martha brings to the stage the potent combination of guitar finger-picking virtuosity, soulful and humanistic lyrics, and a subtle, husky voice that, at times, reminds me of Joni Mitchell.”

Folk Roots Radio with Jan Hall

Martha has the gift for taking the things that happen in her everyday life and creates a soundtrack cultivated by the very passion that inspired the songs”

The Anchor Coffee House

Martha Renaud is a fine storyteller and a balladeer who kept us entranced as she told stories in song. With delicate guitar work she told the story from the perspective of the ghost of a soldier watching over soldiers commemorating the fallen on Remembrance Day at Vimy Ridge. In the song Horobin, she wove the story of four villagers in the 14th century who survived the Black Death and took the name of their village so it would live on through them. Stories well-told, songs well-played and sung! ”

— Graham Lindsey: host of Trad Head Private Showcase at 2017 FMO conference

Hearing Martha's music is like reading a good book, you just want to turn the page and read 'til the end. Her songwriting and her storytelling draw you in. I first heard Martha at an acoustic stage open mic at the Windsor Folk Music Society, and I have enjoyed watching her grow into a fine guitarist and vocalist. her storytelling style reminds me of the wonderful singer/songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter. Martha has many stories to tell, so get a copy of her latest CD and listen to her stories in song”

Dale Butler Founder of Dale's Friday Coffee House

Martha's music draws her listeners close with a comforting tenderness both on record and in concert- one of the things I love about Martha's songs is her ability to broaden her own experience to reflect stories of the community”

Allison Brown Border City Roots 99.1FM

An amazing new singer/songwriter, Martha Renaud crafts and molds a sonic tapestry that both engages and captivates her listeners. Her ability to weave musical landscapes with such purity of voice will most certainly establish her as a bright new star in the folk roots community”
