Record Kicks sign MARTHA HIGH

Published on Giovedì, 07 Settembre 2017

RK is delighted to announce the signing of the“hardest working woman in show business" MARTHA HIGH. James Brown's legendary protégée is about to release her upcoming LP “Tribute To My Soul Sisters” recorded and produced by Japanese funketeers OSAKA MONAURAIL next November 17. Listen to the first single and pre-order the LP on Bandcamp now!

After a whole life devoted to Soul music, Martha now pays tribute to JB’s female vocalists, explosive singers known as “The Funky Divas”. To do so, she partnered up with Osaka Monaurail, the Japanese deep funk combo which is considered to be one of the world’s leading groups in the genre.

The Funky Diva Martha High has been an integral part of James Brown’s life and career for more than 30 years: she was his backing vocalist, hair stylist, payroll master and his always loyal and reliable confidant. As well as having spent a lifetime shoulder to shoulder with the Godfather of Soul, Martha High launched her solo career in 1979 with the self-titled debut for Salsoul Records. Since then she released five albums under her name and she became one of the lead singers of the legendary funky music machine Maceo Parker, with whom she played for 16 years. Throughout her career Martha has shared stages worldwide with iconic artists like Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Michael Jackson and George Clinton to name a few.

Martha High will be on tour with Osaka Monaurail in Japan and Europe this coming fall and winter; keep an eye here for all the dates.
