Martin Craft (stage name M. Craft) is an Australian singer-songwriter now living and working in Dalston, London. Martin was a former founding member of the psychedelic Canberra band Sidewinder, along with his brother Nick Craft, now known as The Zillions.Read More...
Martin first came to prominence as a solo artist with 2004's EP, I Can See It All Tonight, which garnered much critical acclaim. The EP is characterised by its unique fusing of bossanova beats, acoustic guitar, dream-pop and Martin's soft, smooth vocals.
After being electrocuted by a faulty amp after the release of I Can See It All Tonight, Martin returned with his debut album Silver & Fire in 2006, a highly captivating and beautiful release containing several songs from his debut EP and new material. The second single from the album, radio-friendly You Are The Music, was remixed by labelmate King Creosote and Ali Love.
Martin was backed by his band The Dark Circles, with Tree Carr on backing vocals, keyboards and glockenspiel, Maya Lubinsky on backing vocals and tamborine and Paul Cook on drums. Tree Carr and Maya Lubinsky provided the sultry and sometimes melancholic vocals on the album Silver and Fire. Tree Carr can be seen in a duet with Martin in the video for You Are The Music.

- LyricsI can see it all tonight underneath a perfect sky
Where the universe revolves around the pupil of an eye
And infinities stretch out from infinities within
And I'm a part of everything, I'm a part of everything
Am I falling asleep? Is it all just a dream?
- LyricsLittle Magdalene, we all know about the places that you've been
You think you're hidden there but everyone has seen
They can see you now you're out in the rain
It's five a.m. and you're on some corner again
Soaking wet and there's no taxi with your name, you say
- LyricsI've got nobody waiting for me
There's no one that I have to see
Anytime, anyplace that I said I would be
Finally I'm free and I'll be anywhere
I'll chase my tail till I fall in a heap
- LyricsLove knows how to fight
Love knows how to fight
Like darkness wrapped in light
Darkness wrapped in light
And the sky is a roof made of tin
- LyricsSilver and fire burn in the night
There's nothing quite as beautiful as your light
Deeper the waters, darker the flow
Maybe this is everything I need to know
We drift in, we drift out of time
