Store Overhaul 

Well, it has been a while since I did a complete overhaul of my website store. 

Search no more! It's all in one place now!

Thanks to Shad Harris 

My mentor Shad Harris told me about Drooble last month and I am so pleased with the results! I have placed three songs from my latest album

"Love Notes" on Drooble Radio and one of them has over 1K listeners. That makes it all worth while!  

Thanks for your support-Updated 12-30-19 

I would like to thank my friends and family who purchasd my latest album-Love Notes!

In 2020 I will be focussing on downloads only. The January download option only costs ten to twenty cents. Just invite 5 people to join the mailing list  and download a song. Then, BEFORE they join or download a song give me their last names at least a day before they join the mailing list and win a free 7 track EP for ALL six of you with postage paid. That's six downloads in exchange for 6 EP's. This is an introductory offer for one month starting January 1, 2020. Allow two weeks to receive the 7 track EP.

Each month there will be a different offer. I have four albums so that means the offer you've been waiting for is just around the corner!

The way I am setting this website up is you don't need to buy the albums. You can win them by telling your friends and family about this website. 

Let's work together in 2020 so that I can bring new music to this website!

Kellie Rivers sings "Earth Day" on April 22nd on YouTube-written by Kelesha Martin 

So you may ask what has Kelesha been up to? Well, I just finished a song I started last year in February in a Songwriting Class. 
  I was going to enter it in a competition. Instead, this year I decided to cast someone to sing it to get the
word out about Earth Day 2015. I was originally a Health Science Major in college and this song gives me a chance to share another side
of me you may may never have heard.

Stay tuned for Kellie Rivers singing "Earth Day" on YouTube Wednesday April 22nd! She sings it with great sincerity and purpose!

Thanks Kellie!
 

Earth Day -Veterans Memorial Park-4/25/15 12:30pm 

I will be singing "Earth Day" at Veterans Memorial Park in Downtown Napa at 12:30pm
The program will be from 10:15am to 3:00pm

I would like to thank Shad Harris for his guidance in my songwriting career. I would also like to thank B.Z. Lewis for his work on music production
including his LIVE musicianship on the guitar. I would also like to thank Kellie Rivers for singing this song on Earth Day 2015.

Sponsor Recognition 

I would like to thank MacPro Video for their sponsorship of the Kelesha Martin Book Fund.

I took a Propellerhead Reason class in 2014 and MacPro Video helped me get my head around the subject
faster than I would have on my own. 2015 is my last year I plan to use the tutorials but I have learned a lot. I have
EZ Drummer 2 yet to learn. Thanks for empowering me to operate my Home Studio and
help show the younger generation that dreams can come true if you believe and put in the work!
 

RAWArtists and me 

On May 1, 2013 I had my last gig. Some people have busy gig schedules and they love that. I do not require a lot of gigs to be content.
I believe it was a blessing to find RAWArtists. I have a membership with Sonicbids. And that is where it all started

It was through Sonicbids that RAWArtists selected me. I love that their focus is on my craft and helping
me expand my fan base by getting to share my music with the world. They have several perks.

Since I was a Visual and Performing Arts Teacher, I taught Drama, Art, Music and Dance.That experience taught me to appreciate other
peoples perspective. I graded students based on rubrics, not simply my opinion. It is with the unbiased mind and eyes of a teacher that I came to RAWArtist.


 I asked myself this question in the later half of 2012 year- Would I like to have a regular gig so I did not need to worry about where the next gig would come from? The answer I gave was, "Who wouldn't?" RAWArtists is like a community. It takes care of my need to be heard live. I need to be able to share hope and
joy with people everywhere, not only where I live. RAWArtists allows me to do that for a live audience!

Frequently in front of people sharing or performing music since I was a child and continuing through adulthood, I appreciate an organization that let's me share skills I have been honing my whole life. Thanks, RAWartists!
