    A singer who has “soul” can be said to have sensitivity and heart and the ability to emotionally move the listener. This feeling cannot be created with gimmicks or special effects in a recording studio. Nor can it be taught, it is an inbuilt quality one is born with.

    Martha's voice touches you right down to your “soul”, she never takes any of the songs presented to her for granted, creating her own unique interpretation of each song on this new album, backed by her band ‘The Italian Royal Family’.

My life has been changed so much It's hard to believe Just how bad my life had been When sin had a hold on me It hasn't been a bed of roses Since I've started on my way I'm not complaining baby There's just something I want to say: People lives are wrecked by sin And they blame it on the world we are in We got to take a stand We got to show the world a little spark Instead of getting used to the dark Each day I'll do a golden deed by helping those who are in need Life on earth is but a span So we'll do the best we can People lives are wrecked by sin And they blame it on the world we are in We got to take a stand We got to show the world a little spark Instead of getting used to the dark

I too sing America, I too am America Thousand of years ago The prophet said: "The lion and the lamb In peace will play" But people don't Don't understand each other Instead we are, yes we are Sister and brother America is the dream A land created in common But more than ever it seems Has been forgotten I too sing America, I too am America We were blessed and born On a beautiful land So let's join hands together And make it big as we can It don't matter no black, white, yellow or brown, the light of the sun marries all color in one I too sing America, I too am America

about

"Nothing's Going Wrong" is Martha's sophomore album on Blind Faith Records, backed by the mighty Italian Royal Family and produced and mixed by Luca Sapio at Blind Faith Recordings studio.
The super solid back beat and the lush horn arrangements evokes the golden era of the Italian movie soundtracks (inspired by Piero Piccioni, Ennio Morricone and Luis Bacalov).
Lyrically the album is very much inspired by the socially and politically conscious records made by the likes of Marvin Gaye, Gil Scott Heron and Curtis Mayfield in the mid 70s.
A hidden gem proudly shines through in the song ‘ I’ve Still Have A Lot To Learn’; Italian maestro Antonello Vannucchi (leader of the Marc 4 band and keys player behind thousands of iconic Italian soundtracks), has laid down a stellar Hammond B3 take on the melancholic ballad, sadly it was his very last recording session before passing away.
Every once in a while an album comes along, and this is one of them, that is beyond what is currently fashionable at any given time, which evokes the best sounds of the soul golden era, combined with Italian soundtracks of the 60s; infuse them together and you get a funk/soul masterpiece, showcasing one of soul music’s most precious gems- Miss Martha High.
