Artist History

Marthia Sides has one of the most impressive voices, looks, and musical pedigrees on Music Row. First of all, Radio’s response to her Nashville debut CD Born Again in the Country and the single “Picture Perfect Girl” has shown that Marthia has a unique sound that Country listeners get on the very first spin. That song has a Pop/Country feel which is made for Country Radio. The follow-up single, “City Country City,” may be even more impressive. Unlike “Perfect,” Marthia wrote this one, a funky and highly autobiographical story song about her countless geographical and musical influences. Among those musical heroes is Patsy Cline, who like Marthia is a Virginian whose music spanned Country and Pop idioms effortlessly. She grew up around Country her whole life. What truly separates Marthia from her Row competition is not just her music and her style– which are impressive indeed– but it’s her show-biz background. She’s one of the few Country singers who’s lived the life of an Off- Broadway performer– in New York, not in downtown Nashville– and endured the Broadway auditions with 800 other top talents. Marthia has done tons of TV and film work, and is a top-notch stylist with many celebrity clients. Internet Radio and MySpace have become launching pads for Marthia’s music, as “Picture Perfect Girl” and “City Country City” have racked up huge numbers of plays on the Web. Marthia is currently in the studio finishing her second CD, to be released early in 2008. She is a polished live performer who loves playing concerts. Marthia mixes in classic Country– doing several Patsy and Crystal songs, for instance– with newer and original material.

  RISING COUNTRY ARTIST MARTHIA SIDES HELPS ORGANIZE “COUNTRY CARES” BENEFIT CONCERT FOR NASHVILLE FLOOD VICTIMS AT CENTER STAGE ON MAY 12
POSTED BY: radioindy POSTED ON: 11 May 2010 04:19 PM

Nashville Is Going To Need ‘Some Assembly Required,’
The Title Of Marthia’s Current Single, PromptingThe Singer
To Put Her Own Song Title To Some Good Use Victims Of
The Flood

Nashville based country singer Marthia Sides woke up to a heart-wrenching phone call early Monday morning from her close friends Stephanie and John Stone of East Nashville, as their ranch home was instantly flooded. Stephanie explained to Marthia that they were scrambling to grab anything they couldn’t before having to evacuate, as the water kept rising and eventually to chest level. Saddened by this news, Marthia, knowing firsthand how hard Stephanie and John work to upkeep their home, and with the struggling economy, she knew this is last thing her close friends needed.

Marthia, homeless herself at this point, was also evacuated from her home close to the Cumberland River, due to power outage and no running water. With a little help from her friends and local artists, Marthia has decided to organize “Country Cares,” a benefit concert called for people like Stephanie and John.

“Country Cares” will take place on Wednesday, May 12 at Center Stage in Nashville to help raise funds for the many people who have lost their valuables and homes. The event runs from 3-10 p.m. 100% of the proceeds raised will go directly to victims of the recent floods.

Artists already lined-up to perform at “Country Cares” are Marty Raybon (former lead singer of Shenandoah); legendary country music artist Razzy Bailey; Lofton Creek Records artist Kristina Cornell; Grammy & Dove nominated contemporary Christian group DecemberRadio; Rachel Williams (former Nashville Star finalist); Thom Shepherd (hit songwriter for such songs as “Redneck Yacht Club”); Megan Linville; Clay Underwood; Vicki Raye; Kenny Olsen; Tim Akers (band leader for Rascal Flatts); Lindsey Hager; Chris Golden (son of William Lee Golden and band member of the Oak Ridge Boys); Charlotte Melody; Marc Eric; Rodeo; Tommy York; and as well a  performance by Marthia with more acts to be announced.

 “After speaking with friends who lost everything, I just couldn’t image starting from the ground up again. I decided to create an event and bring my love of music and my compassion for the flood victims together to help organize ‘Country Cares.’ This way I know the proceeds will go to the people directly in need,” states Sides.

POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 11 May 2009 05:29 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Marthia Sides with a GrIndie Award for the CD"I Got Faith"

One of Nashville’s finest shines through on the CD “I Got Faith” by multi-talented performer Marthia Sides. Not only has Marthia made a name for herself in the country world but she is also a distinguished Off-Broadway performer that began her career in New York City. Her most recent album “I Got Faith” features a wonderful mix of upbeat pieces and soft ballads penned with country flair. “Tear Drop” is one of the best songs on the CD, as it highlights Marthia’s refined vocals accompanied by piano and violin. “So Many Honky Tonks” is perfect for the fan that is just looking for some down home country music with catchy lyrics and toe tapping beats. If you are searching for a modern day Patsy Cline then you won’t be disappointed when you hear “I Got Faith” featuring the vocal talents of Marthia Sides.

Marthia: The Many Sides of a Star

Marthia Sides has one of the most impressive voices, looks, and musical pedigrees on Music Row.

First of all, Radio’s response to her Nashville debut CD Born Again in the Country and the single “Picture Perfect Girl” has shown that Marthia has a unique sound that Country listeners get on the very first spin.

That song has a Pop/Country feel which is made for Country Radio. The follow-up single, “City Country City,” may be even more impressive. Unlike “Perfect,” Marthia wrote this one, a funky and highly autobiographical story song about her countless geographical and musical influences.

Among those musical heroes is Patsy Cline, who like Marthia is a Virginian whose music spanned Country and Pop idioms effortlessly. She grew up around Country her whole life.

What truly separates Marthia from her Row competition is not just her music and her style– which are impressive indeed– but it’s her show-biz background. She’s one of the few Country singers who’s lived the life of an Off- Broadway performer– in New York, not in downtown Nashville– and endured the Broadway auditions with 800 other top talents. Marthia has done tons of TV and film work, and is a top-notch stylist with many celebrity clients. She lived and worked in New York for 6 years before coming to Nashville. Her sister still works at a high-profile job in NYC, and together they own a Manhattan apartment. But her heart and soul have always been in the South.

Marthia has just finished her second CD entitled "I Got Faith" produced by kevin Beamish set for release early 2009.

She is a polished live performer who loves playing concerts. Marthia mixes in classic Country– doing several Patsy and Crystal songs, for instance– with newer and original material.

Her Radio tours have created great excitement, and spins both on small-market and major-market stations – unusual for an indy artist. KYGO/Denver, for example, a Jefferson Pilot station, jumped all over Marthia’s music and the station’s support helped her get into the prestigious Taste of Colorado festival. And in Arizona, “Picture Perfect” won a station make-it-or-break-it contest before the Eager County Festival, in a part of the state which features the largest stand of Ponderosa Pines in the world.

Everything about Marthia is new and unique, but somehow familiar too. Her combination of talents and backgrounds, so unique to Nashville, is fast making her music both a Web and a Radio favorite
