"You Are Immeasurable"

"When San Francisco singer / songwriter Martay read Angela McMichael‘s book Immeasurable, she picked up her guitar and wrote this song.

It’s a positive and encouraging message to our daughters, wives, sisters, mothers and friends–to every woman, in every corner of this broken world. (And many of us men, as well!)

'Why would you ever believe the lies of him who hates you?
Believe the words of Him who made you…' "

In addition to her music, Check out Martay’s blog where she tackles subjects like anxiety, comparison, bitterness, busyness, dating and more. - Growing In Grace Today

"Martay Gets Active"

"... Martay’s raw vocal quality exhibits a strong soulful voice never trained or touched by vocal coaches. In the midst of struggles, she said lyrics seemed to write themselves, transforming into songs as she jotted notes or prayers on paper.

Listeners who love techno, dance, pop or R&’B music will delight in Martay’s jams. She delivers a sound similar to the vocal layering of Rhianna, Beyonce and Mariah Carey. Martay echoes the rap and pop stylings of Jay Sean, Pussy Cat Dolls and Chris Brown. Her new EP attracts an expansive audience, with synthesizer melodies, vocal mixing, heavy beats and talented rappers laying down clear background beats in Spanish and English..." - The Daily Free Press

From the Central Coast of California, Martay is an innovative music project out to change the tides of music. Whether it be Gabriella “Martay” Williams solo or her on lead vocals and bass with the following members -- Becca Miller on keys and background vocals, Alex Fuller on drums, and Mikey Ponce on guitar -- this project with its rocky-soul-pop sound has begun making a name for itself. Not many could have predicted that the fuel from their lead singer’s solo music career would lead to the creation of a dynamic, energy-filled band with a sound aching to be heard. 

Before the band, Williams had already been singing, performing and recording music professionally for over 8 years. Her musical start in Boston's music scene in 2008 was the beginning of her having a national following and playing more than half a thousand shows over the next 5 years. A supporting act on more than 4 national tours, composer of 3 solo albums, endurer of a shift in notoriety, and paver of a fresh musical direction – Martay is no longer just a one person project. It’s now a band that is destined to leave their mark on the industry and most importantly, change the lives of music fans for years to come.
