Ahead of their single launch Nov/Dec tour. Casper caught up with Smoking Martha vocalist Tasha for a bit of a chinwag about all things Smoking Martha.
Aptly named, the only word to describe this group is smokin’. Like the smoldering heat from a well-tended fire, the eclectic rock punk outfit known as Smoking Martha has the intensity to scorch your best shirt but the discretion to spare your eyebrows.
Born of sultry songstress Tasha D and guitarist Mick Broome’s combined love of raw rock n roll and passionate music, Smoking Martha united with the help of like-minded musos, Azz on Rhythm guitar, Matty on bass and Jordon on drums, one by one complementing their driving electric rock style.
With incredible and energetic stage presence from each and every member, Smoking Martha have gained new fans far and wide as well as landing international and National supports with, Seether, Uriah Heap, Everclear, Dallas Frasca, Electric Mary and most recently with the Original Cherry bomb herself “Cherie Currie” from The Runaways.
The band has played many Australian iconic venues such as Melbourne’s Corner Hotel, Cherry Bar, Yah Yah’s, Vineyard, and Geelong’s Barwon Club. Brisbane’s, Eaton’s Hill Hotel, The Triffid, The Hifi (Max Watts),The Tivoli, Crowbar, The Zoo, Gold Coast’s Coolangatta Hotel, Hard Rock Cafe, Miami tavern, and Sydney’s famous Frankie’s Pizza. And are no strangers to local festivals including, Wallapalooza, The West End Festival, Dead of Winter Festival + more.
More recently they have kept us busy rocking out to their new single and music video “Say You’re Mine” while waiting for their new album. You can check this out below
