MARTHA AND THE VANDELLAS was one of the most successful groups on the Motown Roster from 1963-1967. The group has a harder R&B sound, and their songs, “Jimmy Mack”, “Dancing in the Street”, and “(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave” became the signatures of their career.

From 1963 to 1972, the group charted over twenty-six hits, including two R&B Billboard number ones. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked the group #96 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

In 1972, Martha Reeves left Motown and worked to establish herself as a singer/songwriter under the name. She branched out from her R&B roots and sang jazz, country, gospel, blues, and classical music. She sang with such notables as Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, and Rance Allen.

In 1974, Reeves signed to MCA and released her critically acclaimed self-titled debut, “Martha Reeves”. She went on to record and perform for the next 30 years. In 2004, she released her self-produced CD, “Home to You”, and it was named one of the year’s best by the Asbury Park Press.

Martha just completed a four-year run as a member of the Detroit City Council. In July 2010, Reeves returned to the studio and recorded new tracks by Swedish producer Soren Jensen and her long-time musical director, Al McKenzie. Reeves was recently included on Vh-1′s “Diva’s celebrate Soul” special airing December 16, 2011. Reeves performed her 1965 hit “Nowhere To Run” backed by singers Kelly Clarkson and Sharon Jones of the Dap Kings.
