Christina Martin – I Can Too (EMI Music Canada)

Another extremely talented female singer-songwriter from Atlantic Canada, Christina Martin throws her hat into the ring with her excellent new record I Can Too. Think of her as a female Tom Petty or as a nice compliment to Kathleen Edwards; she’s got the chops, some great backing musicians but most importantly, the songs. She sticks close to roots-rock throughout these 11 songs with highlights including the title track, Subject To Change and Lit Cigarette.
