FRESH: ‘Worth It’ – Marta Ren

Soul sister Marta Ren returns with “Worth It”!

by Christopher Smith

Portuguese soul sister Marta Ren is back. The Porto based soulstress returns with the new single “Worth It”. The song anticipates the awaited second studio album which is scheduled to be released on Record Kicks at the beginning of 2020.

Marta Ren exploded onto the international soul scene with her debut album “Stop Look Listen” in 2016 but she has been around in the Portuguese scene since the mid 90’s with The Bombazines. After the release of her acclaimed debut album “Stop Look Listen” Marta has extensively played all over Europe, included on big stages such as Trans Musicales festival in Rennes, Sziget Festival, Eurosonic and Mostly Jazz Funk.

“Worth it” has been mixed and produced in London by hitmaking producer and engineer Emre Ramazanoglu who in his twenty year career has garnered an impressive résumé working closely amongst the others with Mark Ronson, Lily Allen, Kylie Minogue and Noel Gallagher on his latest album “Who Built The Moon?”. The result of the collaboration between Emre and Marta is an impressive 60’s soul stormer with a rock feel.

Marta’s powerful voice betrays once more all her passion for the deepest funk and rawest soul of the sixties and early seventies and the result is something that would make the founding JB’s soul sisters proud once again. If a good day starts in the morning. Welcome back “Marva” Marta Ren!
