Harvey's Kitchen: Martha Bassett

10 Comments 13 Nov, 2008

Martha Bassett together with Bassist Pat Lawrence play Leave Me Behind , a signature track from her upcoming album with working titles, Shake, or, Whisper.  She is also due to release another album, Moonshine and Starlight sometime soon.

Her current tour schedule boggles the mind with bookings in Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina and South Carolina within a span of a few days.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about Martha in 2009.

(Let’s hope we get to see her at the next Merlefest)

  4. I just discovered Martha! I bought a CD of Favorite Hymns at Shopko and heard her songs I Will Arise and How Tedious And Tasteless; I INSTANTLY WANTED TO HEAR MORE OF HER SOUND! I got Online and WOW!!!! I feel God led me to the discovery of her. I want to purchase some of HER OWN CD’s now! Thank you, Martha for sounding so wonderful to my soul.

    [...] Six members of this North Carolina based band, piled into my kitchen elbow to knee and performed “Carpet and Tile,” from their upcoming EP Elbows up, Strings Down. Eating the Invaders usually rocks it out, plugged in, gritty with a sound that alludes to a strong Piedmont-based musical heritage and something new, dissonant and tangential.
