Marta was born in Austin, Texas, the second of five children in a family that loved to perform. Her father's career, devoted mostly to education and social service activities, required relocating the family frequently throughout the Northeast and Midwest, and finally to South America. It was there that Marta's life in music began. From Columbia to Argentina, Marta was moved and inspired by the soul of the Latin music, which carried on with her and is reflected in her first album, Corazon Del Alma.
A fiercely independent Marta moved to New York City and attended American Music and Dramatic Academy. Following her graduation, she found work on stage and in the cabarets both as a solo entertainer and band member. She even had a run in Broadway's Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Shortly after, she took her big bold voice and knockout stage presence to the seas, as she honed her craft on cruise ships and hotel show rooms through the Caribbean and Central America.
