"Marta & The Boat" is my first solo show. With this crowdfunding campaign, I am collecting the funds to record the first concert of “Marta & The Boat” to make a live album.
“Marta & The Boat” is my first solo show. And with this first solo show, I felt the necessity to leave behind the limitations of genre and instrument - relishing all the possibilities the world of music has to offer. “Marta & The Boat” takes us into a magical world of jazzy swing, magnetic folk, and storytelling filled with energy and emotions.
With this crowdfunding campaign, I am collecting the funds to record the first concert of “Marta & The Boat” to make a live album. It will come out this summer on all major streaming platforms and as a CD.

Full Bio

Marta’s first album “Alcanchais” was recorded with her band MaZéi in 2017. Among her recent releases are the singles “Ó Amor Todo, Ó Amor Às Vezes” (2018) and "Êxodo" (2019), her second album “Christmas with Marta” (2020) and the single"Esmeralda" (2021).

Budget and due dates
Luckily, I have already recorded and released two albums and several singles in my career, so I am familiar with all the steps. I will use a company for printing the CDs that I already know from my first album in 2017. Most of the final work will be done from my home studio, which was also how I released my last album in 2020. The funds I am collecting here will be spent on recording the audio and on manufacturing the CDs (which will each cost about 600 euros).
