Darlington-based music collective Noisy Daughters run gigs, film screenings, panel discussions and workshops – and now they’ve linked up with some friends to release a Noisy Daughters album.
The Noisy Daughters Vinyl compilation features exclusively female musicians from the North East, and launches 17 May, in conjunction with Butterfly Effect Records, as well as Rianne Thompson of BBC Introducing / Amazing Radio.
The event is at Voodoo Café on Friday May 17th, with doors at 7:30pm
Plus! A free bottle of ‘Noisy Daughters’ beer for the first 50 attendees, provided exclusively for the event by Saints Row Brewing Co.
Tickets are £5, or you can get a copy of the album thrown in for an extra tenner, to pick up on at the event – you can even get it signed by the artists on the night. Get your tickets in advance from here.
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.”
