Martha Hill

Newcastle based musician Martha Hill writes hard hitting alt-pop with a social conscience.

It’s amazing what you can achieve when you carve your own path in life. Newcastle based altpop 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. Her self-released debut singles Spiders and Wallflower were championed by The Line Of Best Fit, BBC Radio 6 Music and Spotify Playlist 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.
