Established in 2014, Salads by Martha (SBM) began at home from inspiration of family and friends. Driven by a passion for God, helping the community, and impacting the world; SBM began to bring fresh and healthy options to local areas.
On January 19, 2018, owner Melissa Brown (with over a year of planning and conversations with her husband, family, and friends) left her job as an auditor, took a leap of faith, and began the process of turning SBM into a household name. With God being their provider, orderer of steps, and biggest chearleader they know there is nothing impossible with Him involved.
On February 2, 2019, SBM will open the first (of many storefronts to come) in Ellenwood Village located in Ellenwood, GA. With their faith in God and trusting in His Word from Ephesians 3:20; Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us; SBM's prayer is that all will be blessed and highly favored from the literal and spiritual food received. Their motto is "Fresh and Colorful Salads Created with Love"...the "LOVE" is the best part to us!

Meet Skinny HighTower
Skinny Hightower (born November 12, 1985) is an American jazz pianist, drummer, bass player, and producer. He is known to have worked particularly within the smooth jazz community as a producer and session musician for nearly a decade but didn't begin working as a solo artist until 2015. He claims to listen to nearly every genre of music excluding smooth jazz, stating that he wants to always have a fresh perspective without presenting a stale expression of his interpretations.
Skinny Hightower was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas by both of his parents. After constantly hearing Hightower bang on random objects within the house, his father allowed Hightower to sit on his lap and play the drums at the age of two years old. Within a few years, Hightower had picked up the ability to play drums proficiently and began playing in church at the age of eight. Henceforth, he studied piano under the instruction of his mother and picked up bass at the age of 12 after watching his uncle play guitar. In middle school, Hightower downloaded a free production software and began making drum patterns. At that point in time, Hightower had surrounded himself with music, listening to the likes of Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, The Temptations, Diana Ross, and gospel sensations Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Commissioned, along with many others. During summer breaks, he would practice eight to ten hours a day between drums, bass, and piano.
Hightower attended high school at South High School in Wichita, Kansas where he played in the marching band, jazz band, concert band, and pep band as a drummer, vibraphonist, and percussionist. During his senior year of high school, he began working part time at a drum shop. It was then that he began exploring the drum set heavily, watching and mimicking drummers such as Dennis Chambers, Buddy Rich, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Tony Williams, Billy Cobham, and others. After graduating from high school, Hightower began playing drums for various local artists and bands across a very broad range of genres to include jazz, R&B, hip hop, gospel, country, rock, and alternative. He earned a full ride scholarship to play drums in college, but turned it down to help support his family financially.
Hightower stated that his exposure to music was due to his parents' collection of records and CD's which consisted mostly of gospel and jazz as they wouldn't allow him to listen to R&B or rap as a child. Later, he explored other genres of music and redirected his attention toward older releases by artists such as Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson. Of his reasons for not listening to smooth jazz, he says “I don't have anything against smooth jazz. I just prefer to listen to other styles of music. I do enjoy making smooth jazz, but I want my style to be my own. I don't want to end up accidentally or purposely copying someone else's style.”

Featured Artist Kandace Springs
About Kandace Springs
If Kandace Springs‘ new album Indigo sounds like something new, that’s because it is. Simple while funky. Classic but contemporary. Straightforward in the way it breaks down complex ideas and genres. And, at the end of the day, undeniably human. That said, it isn’t quite a rebirth for the Nashville-born artist, who after stints living in New York and Los Angeles has returned back home to Music City. She’s long had that lithe and smoky voice and an intensely expressive mastery over the piano. For those paying attention, Kandace’s second album finds her unleashing what was there all along, all at once, for the first time.
