Martha Redbone dishes out a unique gumbo of folk, blues, and gospel infused with eclectic grit. Through powerful singing and poignant storytelling, she shares life experiences as a multi-racial Cherokee and African American. Her impressive vocal range and resilient spirit give voice to issues of social justice, bridging traditions, connecting cultures, and celebrating the human spirit. Her album The Garden of Love-Songs of William Blake, was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, which was released on her own indie label imprint and rose to the Top Ten on Amazon Folk Charts for several weeks. These songs have become the bedrock for her live shows bringing audiences to their feet with her fiery old-time mountain gospel singing and foot-stomping energy.
