Kristen is an acoustic folk/pop artist from the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Her sound has been described as hazy, sun-dappled, earthy and homespun and 'equivalent to walking through a field on a warm, summer’s day' (Roots Music Canada). Anyone who has pondered the meaning of it all will find something to relate to in her songs.
Kristen has re-emerged on the music scene after having taken a 10 year break to focus on career and family. Her debut album ‘Coming Home’ (April 2020) was nominated for the 2021 ECMA Inspirational Recording of the Year. Exciting times are ahead for Martell as she prepares to release new collaborative music with award-winning producer Daniel Ledwell and award-winning artist, Gabrielle Papillon, in 2021/2022.
