Macon County singer/songwriter Angela-Faye Martin will perform at the Jackson County Public Library Complex in downtown Sylva on at 7 p.m. on Dec. 6.
Martin calls her haunting songs “mountain folk-rock.” Her latest album is titled “Pictures from Home” and came out in 2009. It was produced by the late Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse (a collaborator of Dangermouse, David Lynch, and Daniel Johnston) and was his last album before his untimely death. Martin derives her inspiration from the Western North Carolina mountains, where she lives with her poet and conservationist husband Brent Martin.
“Together we have formed our own two-person art colony and are constructing a new paradigm of creative success … That is, when we aren’t feeding the local crows cat food.”
During her performance in Sylva, Martin will feature some of her new material as well as older favorites. She’ll also offer her reflections on being a songwriter in the Western Carolina mountains.
