Born in New York and educated in Nashville, Norma Jean Martine now uses London as her base.
It's a path which has allowed the songwriter to soak up various influences, to shift and change as her surroundings morph and evolve.

Sofar Sounds are clearly also fans, recently shooting an intimate live session with Norma Jean Martine. Clash is able to premiere the clip for 'No Gold' and it's a tender rendition, full of poise and personality.
