Martay, my soul-sister and recent partner-in-crime in Austin for SXSW, just released her new album Before The Bouquet last Friday!  You can find the album on all major outlets, including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.  Martay also released her music video for "Aye-Yi-Yay" yesterday, featuring some great choreography in the scenic California desert.  Check out what this artistic singer-songwriter from the Central Coast of California has to offer.  My personal favorite is "Stick-Up" which tells the story about dangerous romantic entanglement.
