In her mid twenties, she returned to the world of music with the release of her self-titled album that featured fellow actors such as Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler and John Turturro. The album went gold, making it one of the first platinum selling albums in history. The next several years would feature a string of guest spots by such diverse artists as Ben Kingsley, George Clooney and Kurt Russell. After several more years with the popular comedy group “The New York Times” and various theater companies, Martina Mc Bride got back in the studio to record an impressive self-titled album. The album went gold once again establishing her presence in the pantheon of greats. This latest release sees the return of her best-known characters and has proven to be yet another smash with both critics and fans.
With the advent of the Internet, many artists have the luxury of touring around the world with the help of a sound engineer. Martina Mc Bride has never relied on a sound engineer to help produce her music as she has done with the past three albums. This means that the studio recordings on which she has appeared to have been her best chances of being great. When you mix a voice that is perfect for country music and a studio recording that have never had any live elements added to it, you get an album that has a very real sound to it. Although the sound engineer can help add those elements to the final product, the actual recording is what allows you to appreciate all that the singer has accomplished.
Martina Mc Bride’s fourth album “Reunion” will be her big break. Having worked with such legendary country musicians such as lefty rockers Lefty Mcfdow and Tommy Lee Jones, it was expected that her first time out with a major label would be nothing short of a huge success. Although the album does not come out until the summer, it has already been sold by independent Nashville stores. This is a major feat for a singer that has never really had the kind of mainstream success that is expected of her.
The most important place that she will be seen in though will be at one of her many gigs that she does every week. Her manager is well aware of how important her voice is to her fans and as a result, she gets to play out even more often than normal. Not only is this good for her wallet, but it makes for a much better quality of the show. Martina Mc Bride gets to showcase not only her amazing talent as a song writer and performer, but also her ability to manage a rock band. She is well aware of the demands placed upon a rock band when they are given their own rehearsal space, a stage and even a bathroom.
