Martina Topley-Bird fans to feast on Soul Food


Story: Jack Foley

MARTINA Topley-Bird, the vocalist whose highly acclaimed 2003 album Quixotic was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize is set to release the single Soul Food on April 19.

Available as a downloadable release, the track will be accessible from Martina’s website - www.martinatopleybird.com - and other selected websites.

Ranging from ambient ballads to swamp-boogie, from shattering rock to brutal electronica, Quixotic was released to huge critical acclaim last year.

Vocally, Martina evokes singers of yesteryear with a nod towards the likes of Billy Holiday and Nina Simone.

The single will be backed by a live version of Too Tough to Die, Anything and Ilya, which were taken from the Zoe Ball XFM studio session recorded on August 28, 2003.

The release of Soul Food will be supported by a gig at the legendary Jazz Café, in Camden, on April 20.

This will be Martina’s first UK show of the year. Her 2003 tour attracted rave reviews from the likes of The Independent, The Guardian and The Times, with The Evening Standard describing her as ‘The best female singing voice in Britain today.’

Martina will be playing further dates in the Summer throughout Europe, including the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival on Thursday, July 8.
