→   MARTA TOPFEROVA'S musical journey is closely linked to her unique, cross–cultural roots. Growing up on both sides of the Atlantic, Topferova often traveled back and forth between her native Czech Republic and the Americas. Highly acclaimed for her previous albums of Latin–flavored music in Spanish, THE OTHER SHORE is Topferova's first collection of original songs in English. As always, her writing is both lyrical and uplifting, and these new songs bring a new dimension to her artistry. The album features Ben Monder on electric guitar, Pete Rende on pump organ, Ugonna Okegwo on bass and Adam Cruz on drums.  “When Marta sings she sounds like she is expressing the very soul of the music, giving voice to the story in the notes and echoing the heartbeat of the rhythm.”  — Blogcritics //

→   Inspiration is where you find it. Never was this truer than with Marta Topferova, a Czech–born singer–songwriter who recorded four albums of original Latin American folk tunes in Spanish. Now the New York–based singer makes her English–language debut, writing all the music, lyrics and arrangements herself. Her voice is both husky and musical, with a subtle, rounded tone and whimsical phrasing that recalls Nick Drake. She’s backed here by soft acoustic guitar, stringed instruments, horns and light percussion that conjures a distinct sense of restraint and pleasant sense of tension, particularly on “End of Winter” and “Magical Garden.” This is balanced by songs like “Escape from the Grind,” where a long spiky electric guitar solo rises up and breaks the spell with a fresh and assertive counterpoint. This should appeal to fans of Norah Jones and Madeleine Peyroux without sounding too much like either.
