The Wanted forge a fresh sound by finding common ground in diverse material.
On their new album Strange Flight, the band returns with another collection of honest and gritty roots music, infused with a spirit that’s at times darkly haunting, incisively witty, or just plain fun. It’s an approach the Toronto-based group has honed since releasing their self-titled debut album, which has tallied close to a half-million Spotify streams.
To produce Strange Flight, The Wanted enlisted Michael Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies, whose trademark sonic approach emphasizes live group chemistry. That was indeed the end result after the core trio of Natalie Rogers (vocals, guitar), Jeff Rogers (vocals, guitar) and Richard Henderson (acoustic lap steel guitar, vocals) emerged from The Hangar, the Junkies’ recording studio, with Strange Flight’s 10 tracks.
With their edgy licks, infectious rhythms and soaring harmonies, The Wanted are reconstructing roots music one song at a time.

During the 70's & 80's Marty created New Direction and Night fever, showbands that toured Canada and the U.S over a 14 year period and still found time to sing on many jingles at various studios, and perform on the "Yes Virginia" telethon and others.
Five successful seasons at Ontario Place led to an 8 month contract on a small island in the Southern Grenadines.

In 1997 Marty recorded a cd produced by J.K Gulley which yielded two singles -" Tears runnin down " making it to #15 on the top 100 Country Chart which earned him the honour of singing the Canadian and American national anthems at the Dome before 25,000 Blue Jay fans.
