Artist Bio

Influences:   Music with a melody- if it can't stand on it's own acapella I won't write it. Classical, folk, pop I guess.

All my songs are going on the youtube playlist(for the year):

This year I am focusing on #LonelyPlanetEarth : I opened up a new facebook profile and within 5 days I filled it with 5 000 people I don't know from adam... Verrrrry lonely people. So to me this is interesting to watch and follow their posts(some I have to translate because I can't even read the language! so we will have to get some Babylon elements in there...!) But discovered normal people with ordinary lives maybe living in an avatar world of the internet. Anyway that is the idea I am playing with: #cybertravel!
See you on the other side of February!

    Marthie, I think True Purpose of You you sent the wrong link as it goes to a different song.

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 8

    Now I am really a mess hearing these demos. You are amazing!

  • @kahlo2013  Mar 8

    Yeah..... sorry about that! My board is a mess!!! My mind is a mess (after the last song of yours I listened to 😀 ) life and love are complex but never dull! Let me know if you want to do any (if you can find them) and I will add you as a collaborator!

  • @devinhill Mar 6

    Thank you for listening to my song "Coffee Break" and leaving a comment. Much appreciated! 😁

  • @squeakmouse73 Mar 5

    Hahahahaha, forgive me if I seemed like I was gushing. You just blessed me. That's all. Love, Rainee, from FB.

  • @squeakmouse73 Mar 3

    Wow! Just read your bio. You, my dear, are an amazing, amazing woman! Bless you and the biggest hugs ever. Thank you for making me think. I love your take on things and am looking forward to hearing more of your songs, as I've only heard a couple here and there.

  • @fineexcuses Mar 3

    Cheers for the comment on 'Polly Is', most kind. Going to have a dig into your many, many tracks now!

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 28

    Hi Marthie, I saw your posting on Igg's wall, Igg is not able to reply at the moment as he is unwell. Please see my forum posting

  • @marthie Feb 28

    Bloberator: posting songs thats not sudience ready because it's fawm

  • @arthurrossi Feb 28

    Marthie! I am always very excited when I see you put music to some of my simple words and although you already spoilt me with your wonderful compositions and your gorgeous voice, I am always absolutely fascinated anew again and again... "Shooting Star" is such a beautiful ballad with a lovely, tender melody and "Another night" turned out as a wonderful song with a dark, slightly mysterious touch, (I also love the musical allusions to the ticking of the clock) and I could easily imagine it as the soundtrack of a new Bond-movie... Both with wonderful melodies and totally wonderfully sung and presented...
    PS: If you have any chance, I would like to ask you for a great favor... Could you send me the demos (including those from last year) as mp3-files on my email address, which is
    ? I love them and I would love to save them...

  • @dutch1967 Feb 27

    and you! 37? you have GOT to be kidding. I have my work cut out with my watchlist.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 27

    Marthie - wow!!!! Letting go is amazing! So gorgeous and captures the sentiment i was trying to convey so well! Love it so much!

  • @misterd Feb 25

    Sorry for the typo/I meant 'continuously' ☺️

  • @misterd Feb 25

    Thank you ever so much Marthie for your kind words on my song' break of day'. I have been tcontunuslly experimenting with simplifying my chords and refining my lyrics to the bare essentials. I'm really humbled and pleased that you noticed this , and I thank you for the support and feedback . Thank you kindly x

  • @arthurrossi Feb 24

    I would like to thank you very much for another that beautiful collab! The music you put to "The circle" suits the general mood of the words perfectly and I guess no need to mention that your vocal delivery is always such a delightful pleasure to listen to... Thanks so much for this fantastic song!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 24

    They don't connect! Since you sent me link I put it on my original post with you as collaborator so then both our posts popped up... but I took mine down now so just yours should be up!

  • @brrrse  Feb 24

    Marthie, thank you so much for your collab on Just Breathe. It's everything I heard in my head. Beautiful!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 22

    I would look very forward to it, Marthie! 😀

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 22


  • @brrrse  Feb 22

    Thank you for your comments on my songs! Please feel welcome to play with Just Breathe if it strikes your fancy!

  • @jcooper  Feb 21

    Hi! Have posted a demo for Falling in love. Let me know what you think of it. Regards Joanne

  • @audrey  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comment on my Christmas song piano part. I appreciate your listening to it.

  • @rcmajor Feb 2017

    Thx for listening to my track and your nice comment - your voice sounds wonderful in your tracks - and you are unbelievable productive - wow! It seems that your days contain a lot more hours than mine 😀

  • @jcooper  Feb 2017

    thank you. I will!

  • @gemhughs Feb 2017

    Thanks for your listen & comment on "For Me".

  • @jcooper  Feb 2017

    Wow! 21 already. Awesome work. Going to listen to a couple now. Thanks for your comment on "can you feel"

  • @aprilm Feb 2017

    Thank you for listening and commenting on Not Today. I am glad you enjoyed it!

  • @janeg  Feb 2017

    Filk is the fan music of fantasy and science fiction. It is a genre by topic not musical style, started in California but now happening across the USA, Canada, Germany, England and Finland with some filkers in Australia, Israel, etc. It is also a community of people who share their music mostly non-commercially, and that encourages full participation regardless of initial musical ability. Most are avid readers who also watch a lot of TV and movies! It heavily overlaps with geek music. Would you like more?

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Marthie! That is so amazingly beautiful!!!! Absolutely gorgeous! I love that you took the bridge to launch the song with the spoken beginning and framing it at the end. Your sparse piano and lovely vocal phrasing and dynamic range is incredible ! So evocative and sensual - tender and loving. Thank you!!!!!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2017

    Marthie - would you be interested in another collaboration? Here is one set of lyrics that I thought you might sound phenomenal performing ... let me know if you might be interested ...

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2017

    Hi Marthie, thank you, Happy Fawming to you too.

  • @cblack  Feb 2017

    Glad you got something out of it! 😀

  • @cblack  Feb 2017

    Thanks for the comment! I had a bit of fun with Frankensong, yes, but not as much as I would've liked. But eh... I'll get there eventually. 😀

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    I would like to thank you very much for your lovely comment...

  • @marthie Feb 2017

    I want to change my profile pic and it doesn't want to work. I am trying to find my watch list people and I cant find it... Is anybody home?

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    Marthie... Thank you soooooo much for the wonderful song you made for "Heaven"... It is fantastic in all respects, a wonderful melody, combined with a perfect performance and your gorgeous voice... That´s pure magic! Thank you very, very much, I love it!

  • @marthie Feb 2017

    sssssshhhhhh everybody is sleeping…

  • @mikhail Feb 2017

    thanks for listening. i like to think i am real, but sometimes i think i might be imaginary!

  • @zxcvbnm  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your comments on Martin Had a Dream. You live in a beautiful part of the world, I lived in Transvaal for 12 years and loved visiting the wine route!

  • @mrmule Feb 2017

    thanks! Yeah, it made my hungry and gave me a a headache too. 😁

  • @arthurrossi Feb 2017

    Hey Marthie! I hope you are fine... I am very happy to see you here again! I would also like to apologise for not having thanked you for the wonderful songs you made last 50/90, I really love them so much... At the end of last summer it became hectic at work and I could not participate in 50/90 any more... This FAWM I will have a similar lack of time, but still hoping for the best... I wish you a wonderful February!
