Unter den Berliner Singer/Songwriterinnen ist sie eine kleine feste Größe: [...] Ihre Musik ist reduziert, verträumt, intuitiv und kein Show-off ihres Könnens. In den Liedern spiegeln sich Erinnerungen und Sehnsüchte wieder, inspiriert von dem Folk Peggy Seegers und dem Country von Bob Dylans ‘Desire’.
— Fever Creek Festival
Her music is a sensitive form of Casio pop, incorporating traditional folk song influences. Her music has been described as both dreamlike and emotional, with a childish lightheartedness and distinctive soft melancholy.

Casio Pop / English Folk / Singer-Songwriter

The influence of the Japanese electronics company Casio upon the history of contemporary pop music has been, well, … huge. Martha Rose is one of many songwriters who uses the products of the company, which evolved at a time when the term "artificial intelligence" still brought to mind friendly robots, and which still proves that electronic sounds can be warm and charming. And what else can we tell you about Martha Rose? In the current issue of The Chop, a magazine specializing in "Local Music & Deep Conversations," the Berlin-based Englishwoman reveals the following: her first guitar was left to her by her first steady boyfriend, at a time when she still played the violin. It was on this guitar that she taught herself the three chords that comprise the core of her music today. She calls her music "English folk." And she likes Shirley Collins. She’s released the album "Spit" and the EP "Affliction," and she’s currently working on a new album. She’s already written ten songs for it. She has been recording at Miami Nice studios with her pals and bandmates Garagenuwe, Dandy Deniz, Seb Gieck and Thomas Zehnle. An early-childhood experience with the movie "Halloween" and the knife phobia that ensued still haunt her today. And, if she were to make a cover, she’d make one of a Kraftwerk song.
