Singer/songwriter Samantha Martin is a petit powerhouse. Never underestimate the exploding force of her bluesy, soulful, new Orleans smoky bar voice. Samantha released her first EP in 2004. Fast forward to 2014 and Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar were born of a need to put together a performance for Folk Alliance Canada that didn’t include bass and drums. The combination of three vocalists and a guitar was created and has expanded from the original quartet to the current 12-piece ensemble. They've earned two Juno nominations and thirteen Maple Blues nominations, including vocalist of the year for Samantha. The most recent album, The Reckless One, was released November 20th last year, smack in the middle of the pandemic. Perfect timing....it’s been nominated for a Juno award for Blues Album of the Year.
