Welcome to Kelesha's Place,
Welcome to my homepage! (Updated 2-17-18).
After writing over thirty songs it is almost time to slow down and spend more time with my family, and just lighten up! I recently decided to continue songwriting but writing singles only when they come to me.
I am going to share one last album. It will only be available for sale here in the physical version. No digital sales on my part. If some of those I collaborate with want to- go digital- on their single, they may do that.
So you may ask- Who is on there? The list is the longest one ever for me. They are as follows:
B.Z. Lewis from Studio 132, Cori Jacobs, Lindsey from Studio Pros, Matt Young from Press Recording, Kevin Julien, Kellie Rivers, Shad Harris of the Groovenators, Kevin Steele,Gustavo Porras from Red Lion Studio,Cynthia Gibson,Crystal Clulee, Jacob Wilson and Kelesha Martin.

Now comes the tricky part. What style is it? I would say Easy Listening/Christian Fusion. It's vocals, a lot of strings, drums, saxophone, flute, a little electronica and classical. I think it is a combination of styles. If you can think of a better or shorter description, let me know. Stay tuned!
My name is Kelesha Martin and I am a songwriter, Substitute Arts Teacher, Band Member and home recording artist.
I have taken classes in Propellerhead Reason, Cubase, and Mixing.
The last two years have all been all about collaborating musically , since I wrote the song "Earth Day" with lyric input from Tom Schwall. I collaborated with him through Bandzoogle. I pitched the song to Kellie Rivers via Starnow and a friendship was started. I recently decided to look for talent again on Starnow and discovered another talented artist named Kevin Sharpe. His LIVE drums will be showcased along with many other artists and musicians.
As a result of Music Gateway,(affiliated with AppleBeam in the United Kingdom) I collaborated with two other talented artist who perform professional recording services: -
Cori Jacobs and Kevin Julien. I am thankful for all the platforms that helped me in my craft. Sonicbids, RawArtists and Radio Airplay should be thanked as well.
May this music bring you peace and well-being!
Thanks for taking the time to check out this website.
Finally, I would like to thank my husband Wayne, whose financial
contribution helped make my first two CD's possible. Also, I would be remiss if I did not
thank my brother, Robert J. Thomas aka Jazzy Jerome, who took the album "Sunrise Serenade" all over
the world to share and distribute. It is because of Robert's commitment to helping the global community
that the goal of giving book scholarships to SUSD High Schools was met. Robert who is on the EP
also ministered to the needs of servicemen with that music.
