Charlotte turns tragedy into art

"My grief for the girl that I loved as a child," read the lyrics to Sinead O'Connor's "I Am Stretched Out On Your Grave," one of the tracks Charlotte Martin covers on her most recent album, Reproductions. And for Charlotte, that lyric holds more meaning than any fan of her music can fathom, evident by her changing of the lyrics to "The loss of a girl that I loved as a child." As she explains in interviews, this album was inspired by the unfortunate and tragic event of a miscarriage. In the liner notes for the album, Charlotte writes: "This album is dedicated to my little angel baby. I'll see you in the big sky someday, love--here I am, waiting to hold you." They are words that break your heart every time reading them. Combine that with the haunting images of a little girl underwater on the cover and the faded sonogram on the back, and it's enough to bring you to tears on the spot. While the event that spawned the idea of the record is tragic, the art that ensues is amazing. The album starts off with Martin's cover of Massive Attack's 1998 tune "Angel," which contains only about 8 lines of lyrics but musically soars. Charlotte speeds up the tempo of the song, giving it more of a groove, and rips it up with shatteringly fierce vocals. Directly after is her cover of the underground hit "Obstacle 1" by Interpol, which most fans agree is the best track on the album. It's incredibly addicting. Charlotte continues the album with K.d. Lang's "Constant Craving," one of the more well-known choices on the album. She manages to really make this one her own, and actually makes it more enjoyable than the original (no offense k.d.). "Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town," the Pearl Jam staple comes next, which showcases Martin at her best: when it is just her voice and the piano. The vocal climax will give you goosebumps. Snow Patrol, one of Martin's favorite bands, provides the original for the next track, "Chocolate." Many people may know this song from "The Last Kiss" soundtrack, as well as from Snow Patrol's critically acclaimed album "Final Straw." Martin uses the organ setting to play this, accompanied by drums and even acoustic guitar, which does not show up normally in her music. This is a very nice song, but it unfortunately does not size up to the original. Next comes the killer "Bizarre Love Triangle," the New Order song which has had its share of covers, most noteably the 1994 acoustic Frente! cover. Martin's version is enjoyable in all it's synth-and-loop filled glory. You can tell she really loves this song from it's delivery. Martin takes on a challenge with the Cocteau Twins' "Cherry-coloured Funk" next, and succeeds incredibly. The second of the 3 piano-only tracks on the album, Charlotte stretches her voice to it's soprano limits (which probably exceed even further with her background in Opera) and delivers a passionate and beautifully layered track. "I Am Stretched Out on Your Grave" (Sinead O'Connor) comes next. Martin manages to turn what is a trance-like, drum-heavy song into a marching, empowering chant that ends so fiercefully you will be inspired for the rest of your day. Martin channels the genius of living legend Joni Mitchell for the next song, "Urge for Going." She gives the song a haunting, brooding feel. The next song, "Just Like Heaven" by the Cure, has actually been in Martin's catalogue for over 4 years, but has only been available as an mp3 online. This is the first time it's been released officially on an album, and kudos go to her because it's one of her most well-loved covers of her career. The third piano-only track, this song showcases her ability to make a song her own. Once again, goosebumps. And after the goosebumps, get ready for the tears. The final track, "Song to the Siren," encompasses the theme of Reproductions, with lyrics like "I am troubled as the newborn child / I am troubled at the tide." And with a final outcry of "Here I am -- waiting to hold you," you remember why it is that you love Charlotte Martin's music so much: because she takes her own personal experiences, tragic or not, and turns them into such incredible, moving art. The iTunes version contains two bonus tracks which are awesome as well!


Those who are familiar with Charlotte's work will not be disappointed by this album. As a songwriter, Charlotte rocks. On Reproductions, she proves that she can reinvent music as well as interpret old material just as well, if not better, then she can write it. Breathing new life and energy into these songs, one can’t help but listen to them over and over again. Her cover of “Cloudbusting” by Kate Bush does justice to the original – and being and avid Kate Bush fan - I do not say that lightly. Great job Char!! Thank you for continuing to make wonderful, soulful music that will always keep us coming back for more!!

Lovely surprise

I'm not usually a fan of cover albums. I think it's always hard to hear songs you know and love and have someone redo it. This album totally took me by surprise. I didn't think I would be as moved as I was by it. I didn't think I would be wanting more and more songs by the end. Plain and simple - I adore this album. I think it's beautiful and moving. I think it says a lot about Charlotte and her song choices. Pay attention and maybe you'll be as affected as I was.

While attending school, Martin experienced "real life," from living with her goth roommate and dealing with typical college-like drama to the tragic suicides of two close friends....
