Releasing 8 cds in a solo capacity and with the highly successful Australian duo The Velvet Janes., and has toured with Ani DiFranco, Luka Bloom, The Cowboy Junkies and Arlo Guthrie.

This Australian singer/songwriter/guitarist is a one-woman operation: publicist, manager, booking agent, record label owner, visionary, producer and artist. And in the fine tradition of hard working DYI artists, Martine continues to perform over 150 shows a year at festivals, colleges, clubs and in living rooms across the country.
Simply put, she's independent by name. Independent by Nature.
