Mother Turtle features singer and songwriter Marsia Shuron Harris. The blend of soul, rock, acoustic and jazz, tends to attract a variety of music fans and people of all ages dance to the bands' infectious rhythms. In 2004, Marsia formed Mother Turtle, where she is songwriter and front woman for the band. Lead guitarist Atticus Robbins, brings a unique mix of Latin, reggae and rock to the group, while percussionist Busta B., keeps the grooves upbeat and moving. On bass is the exceptional Peter Kim, who replaced original MT bassist Adam Bergeron in 2005. Each player brings something different to the group, resulting in music that moves not only your hips but hopefully your heart as well.

In the early '90's Marsia debuted with a seven-piece band at the Hatch Shell on the Boston Esplanade. She was welcomed into Boston's active acoustic music scene and her music played regularly on college radio and other local stations. A self-taught musician, Marsia honed her skills while performing on the streets of Harvard Square and at Boston area clubs and coffeehouses. In 1994 she joined forces with fellow singer/songwriter Adrienne and formed the duo AYE, an original world, folk and rock group ( The two garnered rave reviews and released their well-received CD, "Sweet Life" before disbanding in 2002. Marsia has performed solo and with AYE at numerous venues throughout the Northeast. Places such as the Bitter End, Sidewalk Cafe, Iron Horse Music Hall, Middle East Cafe, Club Passim and others. Her music is said to "inspire even the most cynical bastard to dance" (Northeast Performer Magazine). The Union News calls her music, "inspirational" and "moving." Her voice is distinctive. Even vocal virtuoso Martin Sexton says that Marsia has "the deepest, darkest, most delicious voice." She has opened for Sexton as well as other recording artist's such as, Meshell Ndegeocello, Jeffrey Gaines and Vance Gilbert. She has also showcased at NACA and performed at many colleges and festivals. Her vocals can be heard on a variety of recording projects including an interactive theatre exhibit produced by Peace River Films and she has also co-written songs for a national curriculum program on AIDS awareness, entitled "Staying out of the Risky Zone." Recently, Marsia's voice is featured on a Grammy listed score by composer Ruth Mendelson, which can be heard as part of a nationally touring exhibit presently on display at the New England Aquarium. She is a two-time Lilith Fair finalist, whose songs range from soulful ballads to groove laden rock-n-roll. Check out Mother Turtle on Myspace.
