Taken from her upcoming eighth studio album Storm due for release later this fall, the Canadian singer/songwriter Christina Martin once again released her angelic voice to the world with her latest single Stay With Me, an ethereal and powerful song that captures pure emotions with Christina's delicate voice. 

Christina says about the song: "The muse for this song came in a pre-pandemic dream. I saw a girl wander a cobblestone city-street, through thick fog and moonlit night, and heard a familiar melody and the line ‘stay with me’. Unlike in dreams where I sometimes feel trapped in terrifying scenarios, with this song I found a space to purge my fears and then coax myself to a better place"
