Indie Folk Rock (Wilmot, N.H.)
In the grand tradition of Lynyrd Skynyrd, vocalist/guitarist Tim Noyes named his acoustic trio to tweak the family member that was less than enyhusiastic about his choice to pursue music as a career. Thus was born Aunt Martha, a powerhouse of unplugged soulful Folk magnificence that somehow manages to exude a contemporary vibe. If Jeff Buckley had been more influenced by ’60s Folk than romantic Jazz Pop, he might have sounded like Aunt Martha. The band, not the woman.

~ "Aunt Martha harks back to the days of folk balladeers, yet mellifluously blends modern rock songwriting and musicianship into attention-grabbing — and yes, sometimes amazing — listening." (Indie Radio Rocks The World)
