    The ability of an artist to reinvent themselves and evolve is often a keynote for a long and successful career. Martha D. Lewis has such an ability.

    In a career spanning over 4 decades which began as trailblazing music-comedy duo with Eve Polycarpou as ‘Donna and Kebab’ (Live at the Hackney Empire DVD) and led to several Inter/National tours and TV Radio appearances and three albums as popular song writing duo ‘Martha and Eve’.

    Martha’s vast and varied musical journey since mid 1990’s took in world jazz composition, theatre music, film and documentary music and included Martha’s debut solo release of jazz-world music ‘Café Aman-Double Life’ which was awarded ‘Best Album of the Year’ by BBC Radio in 2007, with tracks featured on ‘Best Of European Jazz Compilation CD’ in 2010.

    Martha next presented and sang in the feature film documentary ‘My Sweet Canary’ about the life and music of Roza Eskenazy, the First lady Of the Greek Blues and sparked an album of Martha’s brave re-imaginings of classic urban Greek blues ‘Homage to Roza’,(2015) featuring legendary drummer Jack De Johnette.

    As a dynamic entertainer, Martha D. Lewis is always looking ahead to create the next project, ensuring constant artistic progression. ALL THAT YOU SEE (2022) – is Martha D. Lewis’s sixth and boldest album to date and marks a new dawn. An album of Indie Jazz infused deeply personal reflections alongside social commentary songs. There is a sense that you are in the hands of a masterful songwriter, one who can just as easily converse with emotional pain and then equally comfortably, take strides of angst at the world around us.

    To create a dynamic new direction for this collection of songs, Martha gathered an ensemble of high-class musicians, producers + sound engineers for the project at Real World Studios. This included drummer Ian Matthews (Kasabian), Nick Cohen (Massive Attack, Annie Lennox) and one of the world’s most respected and innovative producers and sound engineers, Stephen W Tayler. From decades of experience of working with the greats such as Kate Bush, Phil Collins, Stevie Nicks and Peter Gabriel, Stephen W. Tayler has sprinkled stardust onto the mixes of Martha’s songs.


    “.. the perfect mix of singer/songwriter and jazz.” –
    “Martha D Lewis stands out from the ‘female jazz vocalist’ crowd … is a woman with something to say, and a powerful way of saying it. Well worth your attention and your pocket money”. – Jazzwise
