Description

Martha Wainwright is the daughter of folk legends Loudon Wainwright and Kate McGarrigle and sister of acclaimed musician Rufus Wainwright. Born In New York City and raised in Montreal she spent her childhood immersed in music and often performed with her parents.

‘I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings Too’ is her second full length album. The 14 track album features 12 originals, with cover’s of Pink Floyd’s “See Emily Play” and The Eurythmics “Love Is A Stranger” completing the list.

In the three years since her critically-acclaimed debut, Martha Wainwright has toured and recorded with acts ranging from Neko Case to Snow Patrol. She has performed Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall, and appeared on the big screen in Martin Scorsese's The Aviator. But her greatest achievement is, undoubtedly, the creation of her sophomore record. Entitled I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too, it is a musically and lyrically ambitious effort, from understated ballads to intense rock numbers. Wainwright offers new takes on a couple old classics as well: Pink Floyd's “See Emily Play” and the Eurythmics' “Love Is A Stranger.” With I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too Wainwright has created a masterpiece that will further establish her as one of the most exciting and brilliantly creative songwriters of her generation.

Review
As strong as Martha Wainwright's self-titled debut album was, her second full-length effort, I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too, feels like a dazzling surprise, surpassing the first record in artistry and ambition and offering an even more striking picture of her talents. Wainwright's son­gwriting is every bit as strong on this collection as on her first album (no small achievement), and her skill at defining a character in words is impressive indeed, with uneven relationships dominating but not entirely defining the many people Wainwright brings to life here. As a singer, she's gone from strength to strength on I Know You're Married; sounding like some remarkable fusion of Kate Bush, Patti Smith, and Kate McGarrigle (the latter happens to be her mom), Wainwright has learned how to draw out the drama from songs like “Comin' Tonight,” “Bleeding All Over You,” and “The George Song,” though she's intelligent enough to do so without sinking into melodrama. And while several different producers worked on this album (most notably Brad Alberta and Martin Terefe), the results have a rich, unified sound and feeling, with Wainwright's po­werhouse vocals luring the spotlight from a talented team of studio collaborators (including Pete Townshend, Donald Fagen, Garth Hudson, and Martha's brother Rufus) and meshing with arrangements that gracefully go from the spare to the grandiose. While much has been made of Martha Wainwright's place in a family of very talented musicians, I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too is the work of a singer and songwriter who stands in no one's shadow and has fashioned a striking voice of her own, and that voice is in full and fascinating flight here.
