Martha Hill

Smoky Tentacles

Newcastle based alt-pop musician Martha Hill grew up on a remote peninsular in Scotland but left when she was just 17 to travel Europe as a street musician. A talented multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, she settled in the North East and began to pen a series of pop songs that would transcend the streets, drawing on the influence of left-field artists such as Little Dragon and Sylvan Esso. Not shy of hard work, Martha Hill has played multiple DIY tours to a growing fanbase across the UK and Europe in the past 18 months. Her self-released 2018 singles “Spiders” and “Wallflower” were championed by The Line Of Best Fit, BBC Radio 6 Music and Clash, as well as play-listing on Spotify's 'Fresh Finds' amongst others. With her first two releases tackling issues such as mental health and social conformity, Hill is already getting a name for writing hard-hitting alt-pop with a social conscience. 2018 saw her take to the UK festival scene with urgency, playing thirteen festivals, including slots at Camper Calling, Big Feastival and Solfest mainstage.
