Martha Hill is a powerful new voice from Newcastle, who got in touch this week to let us know that she’ll be playing in London and Bristol very soon … and that she’s made this captivating video of an a capella live performance of her sensuous jazzy-pop-RnB fusion ballad, Blindfold.
Busking since she left home aged 17, Martha Hill released her debut single “Blue Moon” in December 2016. She has since toured throughout the UK and Italy, securing the acclaim of fans, promoters on the festival circuit and the attention of the music press.
During a summer of festivals, including slots at Solfest festival, Harambe Pasadia and Lindesfarne Mainstage, Martha Hill was also working with producer Matt Terry (The Enemy, Wonderstuff, RSC etc.) on new material due to be released in 2018. Martha Hill completed her second DIY UK tour of the year in October, including a sell-out show at Cluny2, Newcastle, as well as shows as far as London, Southhampton and even Aberdeen; Martha Hill is a passionate young musician, unafraid of hard work.
She says: “The point of this project is all about creating; it’s really journey based, that’s my philosophy. I don’t really have a big destination that I’m trying to get to, I’m really just doing things that I enjoy, taking it one step at a time and seeing where it takes me.”
