Quote: “The performance … finds Stuckey accompanied by steel guitar and gurgling 80s-ish synths, discovering a hole in her heart and her past that runs along the sweat-filled lines of a modern day James Cain or Erica Jong…an unnerving sensualist place where easy escape seems unlikely.”
-A.D. Amorosi, The Key

Project Description: In Due to the Sensitive Nature, Martha Stuckey recounted moments of pleasurable pain and painful pleasure with hilarity, vulnerability, and secret sharing. Haunting and hostile, Martha's voice soared as she sang folk melodies cut with 80's pop synth alongside the unearthly sounds of steel guitar. It was clear Stuckey was trapped. The mystery laid in how she got there or if she even wanted to escape.
