New Music: Dylan Cox – Flying Martha

I first discovered American indie folk singer songwriter last month through his track A Place To Meet. It was the title track of his new EP, a record that also features his ode to a special woman in his life. It’s called Flying Martha.

Dylan always impresses me with his way with words and Flying Martha is no exception. Steeped in poetry and storytelling, the song is an ode to Marsha, the woman who adopted him and became his legal guardian at the age of sixteen. Though battling cancer, she worked throughout the pandemic providing cheap health care to those in need around Santa Ana, California.

Flying Martha is a touching tribute, featuring delicately-plucked acoustic guitar and Dylan’s inimitable vocals. You can listening to it below.
