Aunt Martha

Listen to Blue Buildings

Aunt Martha is the creative vessel of New England based songwriter and vocalist Tim Noyes. The band has taken various shapes since its formation in 2008, all the while being propelled by the constant writing and touring that has become Noyes’ trademark. 2011 was their busiest year yet, with over 150 shows played and five released recordings (2 EPs, 1 full length, 1 album of cover songs and 1 single). The touring brought them all over the U.S. with stops at more than a few well known music festivals including Bonnaroo and Orlando Calling, along with opening appearances for the likes of Deer Tick, Blind Pilot, Matisyahu and many others. Like the band itself, the music tends to fluctuate. Sometimes it’s quiet and sentimental, stripped down to nothing more than acoustic guitar and vocals. At other times, particularly on the most recent full length album Norway, ME, it becomes a lush wall of sound filled by layered vocal loops, electric guitars, makeshift percussion and synthesizers. To kick off 2012 the band has released La La Lonesome, an EP of 5 simple acoustic songs. It was recorded in a series of motel rooms while on tour in December of 2011. Listen at
