[Listen to Hello Demon on the digital platforms]

On October 12016, Martha Jane & the Talisman  released the band’s debut album Hello Demon.

The album is produced by sound guru Attie Bauw (a.o. De Staat, Raccoon, Judas Priest, The Scorpions) and recorded in the Bullet Sound Studios (NL).

The collective wish of the band and Attie was to make an album that would not yield to the usual production hurries, but with an eye for detail and an old school production.

And they succeeded! In the studio there was time for abundant experimenting. Ideas and songs received time to mature and flourish. 

The result is a wayward, mystical and raw record: an alternative mix of blues, grunge and country music. Musically the band is inspired by The Black Keys, Tom Waits, Jack White, PJ Harvey and Nirvana on one hand and on the other hand by Lee Dorsey, Otis Redding, Nina Simone en Ike & Tina Turner.
