About Rebecca Martin

Rebecca Martin, a native of Maine, began her career in New York City in the 90's with the group ONCE BLUE (EMI Records) that featured her work with Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Jesse Harris. The two toured the country and made influential American recordings with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Ben Street, Kenny Wollesen, Jeff Ballard and Larry Grenadier.

As a solo artist, Martin has made six recordings of her own material (many of them New York Times Critic Picks) and was the featured vocalist on legendary drummer PAUL MOTIAN's 'On Broadway' series, becoming the first singer to accompany Motian on one of his recordings.

Currently, Martin is a member of TILLERY with Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens and the group UPSTATE that showcases her collaboration with Guillermo Klein.

A seasoned performer over a 20 year career, Martin has played at notable venues that include Carnegie Hall, the Village Vanguard and every major jazz festival throughout the world.  She has recorded for EMI, MAXJAZZ, Winter and Winter, Fresh Sound and Sunnyside Records, where she currently works as a recording artist.

Rebecca is also a skilled and effective public advocate, focusing her efforts on government transparency and creating programs that promote rail trails, urban agriculture and drinking water management.
