About Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar · Toronto, ON
Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar elected to use the pandemic pause to record, mix and master their latest powerful, funky and deeply soulful The Reckless One. Singer, arranger and band leader Martin’s lyrics, set to intoxicating, ear worm melodies often focus on the vicissitudes of love: desire, disappointment and when everything works out, emotional and sexual satisfaction. There are gospel infused soul ballads, funk-inflected tracks, stomping four-on-the-floor dance numbers and some straight from the Wall of Sound influenced tune. Martin’s powerhouse vocals and emotionally wrought material are brought to life with the 10-piece Delta Sugar: magical co-vocalists and a full rhythm section, piano, organ, soulful horn section and strings. Expect a torrid force of nature that takes audiences to emotional peaks while leaving them floored with pin-you-against-the-wall power.
