Hailing from Florence, Italy, Marta Palombo found her home in Nashville, Tennessee where she spends her time writing, recording, performing, and curating a cabinet full of local teas. The singer-songwriter now releases brand new single Sketches. Strong vocals are combined with lush instrumentation to create a sound that’s unique and keeps listeners on their toes. The lyrics are genuine, relatable for many of us. Marta writes songs with a great narrative.
Speaking about the meaning behind the track, the artist said: ”While I was writing Sketches, I was dealing with the shattering of a lot of expectations — not only was I not nearly as put-together and grown up as I thought I would be at 22, but I was now facing a global pandemic that had taken every important person, event, and aspect of my life and put it on hold. It put me in a very raw, open position, and it felt very much like I was a sketch. I had spent months sketching myself out, and just as I was about to paint in the detail, the life, and the color, I had to stop. At the time, I had no idea when I was going to be able to pick back up again. So Sketches is a reflection on what my 22 felt like; uncertain, disillusioned, and raw.”
Hopefully, 2021 will be better then 2020. There’s light at the end of the tunnel. Check out Sketches below. Definitely memorable music.
