Miss Martha High is an internationally acclaimed performer, author, vocal instructor, radio talk show host, and artist. She was discovered by The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, at the age of 18 in the mid-1960s while singing with The Four Jewels at the world famous Apollo Theater in New York. They later become The Jewels after Mr. Brown invited them to join him on the road with the James Brown Revue. Martha Harvin was renamed Martha High by Mr. Brown and later crowned her The Goddess of Soul. She performed with Mr. Brown for 32 years and has the distinction of having worked with him longer than any other singer.

Miss High has spent the last five decades entertaining audiences around the world. In addition to writing a book, she launched her own radio show, It’s High Time, in 2020 on studiowbuzz.com, where she interviewed musicians and celebrities with whom she worked and collaborated throughout her career. Today, she has been invited by television industry professionals to develop her own talk show. Miss Martha High & Friends (working title).

Amid her success with Mr. Brown, she joined other legendary artists on stage including Michael Jackson, Bo Diddley, BB King, Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker, and was featured in The Blues Brothers film and the television series, New York Undercover.

After working with Maceo Parker and his band for 16 years, she has become a highly sought-after performer and currently enjoys a successful solo career. She performed for audiences around the world in addition to giving special guest performances on over 50 television series featuring world renown hosts like Johnny Carson, Don Cornelius (Soul Train), Jay Leno, David Letterman, Arsenio Hall, Jerry Springer, and Jonathan Ross. She is also one of the best live performers in the business and has taken the stage at the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Indianapolis Jazz Festival, and many other live events throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan.

The Magic of Christmas
A Holiday Celebration of Love, Culture and Humanity

Since the beginning of her career in the 1960s, Martha High feels privileged to travel around the world to entertain audiences who love her voice and feel the spirit of love she conveys each time she steps onto the stage.

“I am so blessed to have sung on countless albums with the best of the best. When I started releasing my own albums I kept thinking that I’d do a Christmas album someday,” Martha said. Her producer and friend, Michael Edell, said he’d be honored to produce her next album in time for the holidays and that was it!

Martha and Michael began working on a list of Christmas songs in the Summer of 2022, borrowing from the classics to contemporary sounds. Martha said, “We just had to do Santa Baby, but I wanted to put a different spin on it. The Christmas Song is one of my all-time favorites. We then added Wham’s Last Christmas upon the recommendation of a friend, so I asked Michael Edell to make it real soulful to make it stand out and he did just that!”

Another of Martha’s dearest friends is author Dr. Yemaja Jubilee whose books feature many of Martha’s artistic paintings and sketches. Martha told Michael, “Dr. Jubilee has written a song that we must do on our Christmas album!” Dr. Jubilee contributed It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, which is an invitation to celebrate love, culture and humanity during the holiday season.

Martha’s joyful voice combined with Michael’s infectious reggae groove delivers the message ‘on fleek.’ Martha’s version of Donny Hathaway’s This Christmas takes the song to the next level. The”Shake a hand. Shake a hand” chorus at the end makes you beg for more. The new ballad, Why Don’t You Come Home for Christmas, evolved from an idea for a melody Martha that left on a voicemail message to Michael. The song became a soulful plea from a woman wanting to be with her lover during the holidays.

No album by Martha would be complete without a nod to her boss, mentor, and friend — the Godfather of Soul, Mr. James Brown. Martha along Grey and the Hit Me Band honor Mr. Brown with a rendition of his recording of Santa Claus Go Straight to the Ghetto – a tender reminder to Santa that children living in poverty deserve gifts too. Finally, Martha along with Grey and the Hit Me Band, escort a very funky Jingle Bell Rock down Basin Street in New Orleans and then all over the world as Martha shouts the names of some of her favorite cities here and abroad.

The album opens and closes with Greetings — a personal message from Martha, then closes with Blessings — a heartfelt message to her thousands of friends, family and fans all over the world. She felt the album needed to convey a sense of community in today’s world.

The album has already received rave reviews on social media. Martha says, “I hope everyone who listens to my album will feel a renewed sense of joy, love and the desire to celebrate the many gifts we have to share”.

The new single ‘A Christmas Letter’ from ‘Aria’ with its tinkling pianos, soulful vocals and dazzling big festive production is on the playlist now.

The head of music for hollywoodfm.digital said that he loved the new single ‘A Christmas Letter‘ from ‘Aria’ with its tinkling pianos, soulful vocals and dazzling big festive production, that sends shivers down your spine and relaxes you just in time for Christmas . The song has been placed on the hollywoodfm.digital playlist and will be played on high rotation at least once an hour all day and night + as a special Christmas powerplay every day at approx 4: 30 PM Pacific time usa for a month.

Aria’s stirring, heartfelt track, A Christmas Letter, reinforces love and connectedness in a time when Christmas has taken on new meaning and significance in the wake of recent worldwide events.

In April 2022, Aria released The Next Life, a song dedicated to the environment and endangered animals. The Next Life generated 200,000 streams, over a million views, and charted in Italy and Australia.

A Christmas Letter is a classic song in the Motown/gospel style that was recorded in South Africa at the historic Downtown recording studios in Johannesburg. It was mixed by Jack Rouben out of Los Angeles (I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion, Earth, Wind & Fire).

It features Afro American singer Sherita-O (Boney M.), The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Macedonian children’s choir, Heruvimi. The lyrics were written by Cambridge author Nicolette Turner.

The piece is dedicated to women and their children. On such an important day, many women are away from home for work and have to leave their families behind. Our hearts are with those who have to provide essential services to the community: hospital workers, hotel employees, artists who have to perform often far from home, and many others. It is also a song for peace, something very current and important; think of the women of Ukraine.

A Christmas Letter is on radio today and available to download in online stores.

The new single ‘Hold Me Close’ from ‘Hello Fiasco’ with its pure Indie rock energy is on the playlist now.

The head of music for hollywoodfm.digital said that he loved the new single ‘Hold Me Close’ from ‘Hello Fiasco’ with its pure Indie rock energy, mixed with a true pop sensibility, big vocals and a wall of sound guitar production, that takes you to the mosh pit and back in a stylish manner, this rocks and pops. This song has now been placed on the hollywoodfm.digital playlist and will be played at least once an hour on extra high rotation + as a special superplay at approx 7:30 PM Pacific USA time every night for a month or more.

The new single from ‘Hello Fiasco‘ is entitled “Hold Me Close.” This is the first single from their debut album “Find The Shoreline.” The song polled 73 out of 85 possible in US/UK/CAN/IRE/AUS/NZ. Currently at 690K streams on Spotify and the YouTube video is now at 185K views.

Prior to 2021, former members of Canadian rock band The Mailman’s Children joined forces with other artists to record 23 original songs. At the top of 2021, the newly formed Pop Rock band surfaced as Hello Fiasco.  

Hello Fiasco is considered Canadian-American because their frontman Eric LaBossiere (born Canadian) lives in Helena, Montana (USA). The rest of the band lives in Winnipeg, including Joel Couture (bass), Joel Perreault (lead guitars/backing vocals), Ivan Burke (drums), and Guy Abraham (keys/Ableton/backing vocals).

Since its official release this summer, the band’s debut album “Find The Shoreline” has already earned 2,500,000 streams and been placed on over 6,000 Spotify playlists. The album itself was co-produced by both LaBossiere and award-winning producer John Paul Peters (Propagandhi, Comeback Kid, Faouzia, Cancer Bats, Begonia). Notably, the album was mastered by American Grammy-winning engineer Randy Merrill of Sterling Sound (Imagine Dragons, Cage The Elephant, Muse, Bieber, Adele, Lady Gaga). 

Because the band prides itself on coming from the side of Pop Rock where the quality of lyrics, music and originality still stand for something, HF has been compared to Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and David Bowie. HF’s first performances include a sold-out headlining show at Canada’s renowned Festival du Voyageur, as well as an opening slot for The Watchmen, I Mother Earth and Bif Naked at Winnipeg’s Burt Block Party. The band is currently in the process of scheduling its first North American and world tour dates for 2023.
