Christina Martin‘s music achieves an effortless union between alt-country and rock with pop-sensibility. This award-winning artist has been attracting roots/rock listeners across North America and Europe for nearly a decade. She has released five albums on her independent Canadian label Come Undone Records. Having opened for Wilco while living in Austin TX, she returned to the Canadian East Coast to dig her heels into the music business and formed an independent music label to manage her relentless touring and recording schedule.
Sleeping With A Stranger features tweleve original songs and Martin coming of age both lyrically and musically.

She recently returned home to East Coast Canada after touring her acclaimed album with husband/producer Dale Murray in Canada Germany and Netherlands.
“This is a singer-songwriter who observes, feels, does not judge, and relays what she finds – “not good at keeping secrets,” she even admits. With a voice high, strong and bittersweet, the affecting Nova Scotian sings of search, vulnerability and the concept of home.”
