“I’ve been talking about my family since forever, and families are interesting but, by putting it down on the page, I’ve maybe freed myself of it,” Martha Wainwright told the Observer earlier this year. “I’m letting some things stay in the past, and looking to create a new story.”
Martha Wainwright is an internationally renowned singer-songwriter, with over two decades of industry experience. Born into music royalty, the daughter of folk legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III and sister to the highly acclaimed singer Rufus Wainwright, Martha grew up surrounded by musical legends such as Leonard Cohen and Emmylou Harris.
In her heartfelt memoir, Stories I Might Regret Telling You, Martha digs into her life with the same emotional honesty that defines her music. Evidently, Martha’s songwriting prowess translates to books; Jan Arden says, “I kept rereading certain sentences thinking they would make such wonderful songs. This entire memoir is a song.”
“With disarming candor and courage,” writes Emmylou Harris, “Martha tells us of finding her own voice (one, in my opinion, without peer) and peace as a working artist and mother.”
