My brother in law, Scott McDonald, occasionally asks me to tag along with him on his music adventures. He had interviewed Martina Topley-Bird for the North County Times, and while chatting, she asked Scott to set-up a couple of in-store gigs. One of them was at the legendary Lou’s Records, (legendary for us north county kids who grew up before iTunes). I had no idea what to expect, I actually hadn’t heard of Martina before. Scott has never steered me wrong before, and if he said I was going to like it.. I knew I was in for a treat. Martina is amazing.. her style, her voice, it was a captivating performance. Martina is currently touring with Massive Attack as well as performing solo.
