Martha Hill

Newcastle-based musician Martha Hill writes left-field pop that is both hard-hitting and catchy as hell. She performed on the second stage in 2018.

Northern musician Martha Hill left her coastal Scottish home aged 17 to busk her way around Europe before settling down in Newcastle and throwing herself into the UK music scene.

Newcastle-based musician Martha Hill writes left-field pop that is both hard-hitting and catchy as hell.

An energy of husky vocals and melodic hooks, her introspective storytelling delivers socially conscious themes over a backdrop of guitars, cellos and synths, thriving in reinvention and fusion.

After being tipped as one of BBC Introducing’s “ones to watch”, followed by a feature on Jools Holland, Martha Hill is one of the most exciting upcoming artists of 2020.

Funded by the coveted PRS’ Women Make Music Fund, and also a Rebalance finalist, Hill released her debut EP “Be Still” in October 2019 which received support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and Spotify Playlists (amongst others).

It’s amazing what you can achieve when you carve your own path in life, and Martha Hill’s journey is only just beginning.
