Dogwood Daughter: HOME




My little studio in the woods


Welcome to the home of Dogwood Daughter and the sister site of Lily Cat Music for Kids!


You can listen to music while you peruse my website.  See the little green bar at the top of the page? Just click.)  

Hi, I'm Martha Maria. I live in E. Tennessee and record from my little studio in the woods. 

For better or worse, I'm a one woman operation:  I write all words and music, sing and play all parts and instruments, and even do my own sound engineering.

Listening to beautiful music is ALWAYS free here.   Just go to the "Listening Room" page and click on any song.  You can download my recordings of traditional hymns and many other songs without charge.     

And speaking of no charge, here's a free Easter gift for you, a song I wrote based on a portion of an ancient Celtic Christian poem, rendered in English translation.  Enjoy!  And a joyous Easter to all my friends and fans!
