Released 2018

NOTES
New Mexico's progressive folk singer/songwriter Martha Reich returns with her most personal songs yet on “BRAVE BIRD”.
Each song is an intimate window into Reich’s journey from fear to courage — from self-doubt to self-acceptance.

BRAVE BIRD is in honor of all courageous voices and life’s sacred transitions,
experienced beyond the presence of fear.

Global Music Awards Gold Medal Winner for Female Vocals
Global Music Awards Silver Medal Winner for THE RIVER
Clouzine International Music Award for BEST INDIE ALBUM
New Mexico Music Awards and Southwest Independent Music Awards for I'D RATHER BE SURPRISED

Reich’s vocals have been compared to Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, while her lyrics offer a vulnerability all her own.
The 7 songs on the album consist of 6 originals and an unique interpretation of the classic, “Over The Rainbow”.
After personally laying the foundation for all the songs using six different instruments, (Banjo, Steel and Nylon String Guitar, Dulcimer, Piano and Ukulele) Martha carefully chose complimentary musicians to fill in the sound, including Grammy award-winning producer, engineer and guitarist Larry Mitchell.

“I would not exchange the laughter of my heart for the fortunes of the multitudes; nor would I be content with converting my tears… in to calm. It is my fervent hope that my whole life on this earth be tears and laughter.” - Kahlil Gibran

"With a sound almost woven out of the earth, Martha Reich sings from the brittle openings of the heart." -James Diaz, Anti-Heroin Chic

"Martha Reich’s “Brave Bird” is Stunning and Heartbreaking..." -Jason Davidson, Americana Highways

"THE RIVER is a work of art with the warm, mellow tones of the grand piano coming together with the lovely vocals to create a soulful masterpiece."
- Grammy Award Winner, Wouter Kellerman
