SAMANTHA MARTIN & DELTA SUGAR-RUN TO ME-‘SOUL SUGAR” REVIEW BY JOHN EMMS

Run To Me by Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar contains fantastic slices of deep soul sung gorgeously by Martin and played with groove and finesse by her 10 piece band

For starters if you took equal parts Carla Thomas and Etta James and dropped it smack dab in 2018 you would have an  idea of this great voice.

Not only that but tracks such as Wanna Be Your Lover,  Gonna Find It or Good Trouble are good enough to reference Staple Singers or Otis Redding recordings.

Elsewhere  songs such as Over You and Will We Ever Learn could crossover to pop, soul or R & B audiences in Europe or the USA.

The beauty of this album is that Martin’s voice and the band play with restraint and dynamics instead of blowing it out.

WOW.

If Martin and this album does not hit big, there is no soul justice!!!!
