Martha Wainwright

Critics' choice
© Dean Chalkley

When you're the sister of Rufus Wainwright and the daughter of two world-class country and folk singer-songwriters (Loudon Wainwright III and the late Kate McGarrigle) it takes a lot to stand out. Fortunately Martha has a wonderful rootsy, folky pop approach, shot through with a distinctively sensitive, powerfully melodic sense of thoroughly modern songcraft – so she's in no danger of embarrassment at family Christmasses.
