If you think you have never heard Marthas voice before, think again! She features on massive JB classics such as Say It Loud and on the The Big Payback. After a year and a half, and two 45s produced by James Brown, The Jewels disbanded but Martha continued to be a part of the live James Brown show for the next 30 years! She is fondly remembered by fans as the jetblack sister with glowing blond hair! She also recorded a solo album, for Salsoul Records in 1979, also produced by Soul Brother Number 1, which added a touch of soulful disco to her enviable array of singing talents. In 1995 Martha was invited to tour with ex JB sax master Maceo Parker, joining another former James Brown band member Sweet Charles Sherrell in an incredible, feisty line up that is touring to this day.
After featuring on Freestyle mainstays Speedometers 2011 album The Shakedown, and touring with the band, leader Leigh Gracie and Martha formulated the idea for her to record an album on which she would reinterpret some classics, and give a new angle to some more contemporary funk & soul compositions.
Soul Overdue is an incredibly apt title for a project that has been over 40 years in the making, and it shows that Marthas voice remains undiminished, her youthful vocal clarity and style quite simply dazzles as she shows a host of young pretenders the way it should be done!
Make it funky, Mother Popcorn!
