Martha Redbone Roots Project

“Martha Redbone’s voice held both the taut determination of mountain music and the bite of American Indian singing.” The New York Times

Charismatic songstress Martha Redbone is one of the most vital voices in American roots music. Embodying her gospel-singing father’s voice and her Cherokee/Choctaw mother’s culture, Redbone’s magnificent vocals blend with her band of some of NYC’s finest blues and jazz musicians for “a brilliant collision of cultures” (The New Yorker). The folk and country sounds of her childhood in the Appalachian Mountains and the eclectic grit of her teen years in pre-gentrified Brooklyn come together in a masterful mix of folk, country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul and traditional American Indian music.
