Brooklyn's Cat Martino is giving away a free tune titled "Jennie's Gone Down," in honor of Memorial Day 2010. The tune is off her forthcoming release due out this fall. “Last May (2009), I woke up to read a story on NPR about Jennie Hodgers, a woman who changed her identity to Albert Cashier to fight in the Civil War." says Martino as her inspiration for the song. Cat sings often with Sharon Van Etten including on Van Etten's beautiful new tune "Love More." Martino has a very lovely voice and her songs range from singer songwriter-ish tunes to more experimental stuff which in her live performance she uses a loop pedal to sample a plethora of instruments including an omnichord, electric and acoustic guitars, drums, piano, Casio keyboard and her voice.
