Marla Mase is a writer/performer/producer/singer/songwriter. She pens songs, plays, monologues, short stories, erotica, blogs and poems. Known for her gutsy, sexy, raw performance style and smart, cutting lyrics, Marla is regarded by her peers and fans as a true musical pioneer. Her songs, a mix of punk, funk, spoken word and classic rock & roll are infused with “global soul,” the signature sound of her Brooklyn-based label True Groove Records (also home of No Wave legends James Chance and the Contortions).
Along with triumphant tours in China, Europe and the United States, Marla received a ‘Messenger of Peace’ award from the Friends of the UN for her visionary work as a songwriter and performer. Her critically acclaimed multi-media performance concert SPEAK premiered at NYC Summerstage 2013, and set the bar for her next release Half-Life which was heralded as ‘The first great album of 2014.’
A long time creative force in groundbreaking NYC theatre as an actress, writer and producer, Mase currently has three projects in development: Diana & Navy (a future American musical written by True Groove labelmates Phoebe Nir and Tomás Doncker), The Pill (a post-truth memory play about family and mental illness), and a theatrical concert adaptation of her latest release Miracles~Lost & Found, directed by Lisa Milinazzo.
Currently being developed as a multi-dimensional concert presentation, Miracles Lost & Found is a politically charged LP that blends power pop, spoken-word poetry, modern opera and post-punk attitude into a unique deconstruction of living and dying in the modern world.
The Dylan Mars Greenberg directed video for “Falling Sideways,” which Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of premiering today, takes on the qualities of an immersive performance art piece, blending visual depictions of the conscious and subconscious to showcase the song’s jarring, off-kilter perspective on the present and future.
