#ROGUESTORIES – Martina, Dragonette


The thought of meeting Martina Sorbara was a bit intimidating to say the least. She is the front-woman of internationally loved electro-pop outfit, Dragonette. The band has called the U.K. home, cultivated a following in Japan, topped the charts from Austria to their native Canada, and Martina herself has been active in music since 1998. With a resume like that, you’d be hard-pressed not to be a bit shaky interviewing her.

When Martina walks in the room the first thing you notice is her energy. She’s a heck-of-a nice person and fun, really fun. Her outfit is casual a tank top and jeans, but she plays it up with a cocktail of bracelets, rings and a necklace. You sense authenticity in her that surprises in the best possible way. Her voice is high-pitched, infectiously delightful and it sings, even if she’s just talking. Every part of Martina is perfectly fitted to being the leader of an international band, it’s no wonder she’s been so successful. We chatted about growing up, what beauty means to her, and working with Jian Ghomeshi—read on to learn more.
