The contribution of Miss Martha High to the development of soul music has remained indisputable for many years. Born in Victoria, Virginia and growing up in Washington DC, she started singing in front of audiences at a young age and was discovered at a talent show by non-other than Bo Diddley who linked her to the band The Jewels. After a hit with Parliament's George Clinton she was discovered in 1965 in Washington by James Brown, the start of Martha’s 32 year career performing alongside The Godfather, the longest of any of his backing singers.
Fast forward ﬁve decades Martha has certainly earnt her nickname of the “hardest working woman in show business” and has been gracing stages around the world with The J.B.'s, including Vietnam and Zaire, and can be heard on classics like ‘There Was a Time’, ‘The Payback’ en ‘Body Heat’. Consolidating her relationship with Italian label Blind Faith Records and the Italian producer Luca Sapio, she is ﬁnally coming back with a new album: Nothing’s Going Wrong the second album recorded with Luca.
