Singer/songwriter Martha Redbone has been described by Billboard Magazine's
Larry Flick as " a true original; the kind of artist who sets trends, as
opposed to following them". She grew up in New York and Kentucky. An unlikely
combination that you can hear in her flow: the staccato melodies of the city,
mixed with the easy, wide-open praise song of a country choir. Martha Redbone
was mentored by legendary musician, Walter 'Junie' Morrison, who was an original
member of the Ohio Players and later, Parliament Funkadelic. Now a kid sister
to the funk, she even sang backup vocals on the Mothership reunion album with
Her debut CD "Home of the Brave" is summed up by Billboard in one
word... "stunning". Her music is a diagram of American dream; infused
with folksy guitar strum, Hendrix swagger and earthy, Stevie Wonder-esque funk.
It.sounds like music that was cooked up at a dinner party where the guests included
Sly Stone and Prince, Minnie Riperton and Al Green. This album doesn't mince
words or pull punches, it's everything -- angry, painful, funny, smart, romantic,
playful -- that's in Martha's heart. Her lyrics, her beats, the soulful, sassy
timber of her voice... are intimate treasures to unfold.
