Watch Pete Townshend Join Martha Wainwright On Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” In London

Last week, Martha Wainwright kicked off a UK tour at Cadogan Hall in London. Pete Townshend came up out of the audience to perform with her during the last two songs of the set. They covered Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” to start, and then performed Wainwright’s own “Factory,” off her 2005 self-titled debut album. Wainwright and Townshend have performed the latter track a couple times before, once in 2006 and once in 2007. Watch video from the show below.

Stories I Might Regret Telling You: A Memoir, by Martha Wainwright

Like many great artists Martha Wainwright is a complicated person. With her new memoir Stories I Might Regret Telling You, she paints a portrait of the comforts of being tethered to her family while wanting to be recognized for her own self. Her tales move from a misspent (but not regretted) youth to motherhood and the challenges of grown-up relationships—all the while honing her craft as a singer-songwriter.

Stories I Might Regret Telling You by Martha Wainwright review – first-class family drama

Tales of rivalry, love, drugs and difficult births litter the singer-songwriter’s gripping account of life in a dysfunctional music dynasty. “This book has been a thorn in my side for almost seven years,” writes singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright near the close of her engrossing memoir, an account produced through the lonely tumult of a custody battle, in the wake of grief, then galvanised by new hope. “I’ve burned copies and used the backs of pages as scrap paper on which I taught my kids addition and subtraction,” she continues. “An early draft was used as evidence against me in my divorce case.”

Rufus and Martha Wainwright: ‘When Mum died, we sewed ourselves together again’

Internationally revered singer-songwriters Rufus and Martha Wainwright are as known for their theatrical artistry as for inter-familial rifts. The children of two famous folk singers, Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, their bohemian childhood was split between Montreal and New York, before Rufus rocketed to fame with his self-titled debut, a further nine albums and two operas. Similarly prolific, Martha has released seven albums, the latest of which she is now touring. Martha lives in Montreal, with her two children and partner. Rufus is based in Los Angeles with his husband and daughter, and is touring the UK this month.

Martha Wainwright Finds "the Strength to Survive" on Love Will Be Reborn

Canadian chanteuse Martha Wainwright would like to offer a helpful preface to anyone partaking of her sonically adventurous new fifth album Love Will Be Reborn. “I am really, fundamentally at heart, a beatnik,” she says, so there’s a beret-cool, Howl-confessional catharsis shading this stark set, wherein she bravely exorcises some dark personal demons with a track listing that goes from slow and grim (the folk opener “Middle of the Lake,” a plaintive howler called “Getting Older,” and the ghostly a cappella “Report Card”) to fast and lyrically light (the spoken-word-retro “Hole in My Heart,” a church-carillon-chiming “Justice” and the breezy uptempo pop of “Sometimes”). The set closes on a French-sung, lullaby-innocent “Falaise de Malaise,” which makes you stop and wonder—was the pain you sensed pulsing in Wainwright’s voice at its inception just an Eyes Wide Shut dream? No, it was all too real, she admits, and she’s happy that listeners can’t leave until “the mood is galloping and cheery,” she says.

Album reviews: Martha Wainwright – Love Will Be Reborn, and Villagers – Fever Dreams

Martha Wainwright – Love Will Be Reborn★★★★☆After Martha Wainwright divorced her husband of 10 years, she assumed she would be alone forever. She hadn’t just conceived two children with her producer ex-partner, Brad Albetta, but also most of her albums – including her brilliant self-titled debut in 2005. But then she found herself in a new relationship, and with it a fresh resolve for the kind of music she wanted to make.Love Will Be Reborn presents an artist who has spent much of her career being somewhat sidelined by the more ornate compositions of her older brother, Rufus.
