Northern musician Martha Hill makes alt-pop that is both hard hitting and catchy as hell. After being tipped as one of BBC Introducing’s “ones to watch”, followed by a feature on Jools Holland, northern musician Martha Hill is one of the most exciting emerging artists of 2020. With the help of the Do It Differently fund, she self released her second EP “Summer Up North” in October, having working remotely with producer Julien Flew via Zoom to create it. The first two singles from the EP, “Grilled Cheese” and “Lanslide” were playlisted on BBC6music, with “Grilled Cheese” also being named BC Introducing’s “track of the week” and receiving a week of airtime on Radio 1. Martha Hill left her home on the west coast of Scotland aged 17 to busk her way around Europe, before settling down in Newcastle and throwing herself into the UK music scene. Based in Newcastle, 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. 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 6music, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and Spotify Playlists (amongst others).  It’s amazing what you can achieve when you carve your own path in life.
