Eyes on for 2021: Martha
Martha was 9 years old when she sang a solo for the first time at a church congregation, playing the piano at aged 10, but it wasn't until a few years later when she discovered her love for songwriting.
With a special talent in writing meaningful lyrics and emotive melodies, she owns the role of storyteller through her music, always looking for new ideas to write about, as she tells in an interview with Martin Evans at BBC Introducing Bristol.
Martha's debut single, "Her Name's December", charted number 1 in the singer-songwriter charts and reached top 40 in all genres. "Lunar Eyes", the single that gives name to her debut EP, reached number 2 and top 20, respectively.
Very impressive for someone new in the industry but not surprising considering the quality of her beautiful indie acoustic pop creations.
The lack of gigs due to the pandemic this year hasn't stopped her from showcasing her music and staying close to her fans, playing virtual shows on numerous occasions.
She's been frequently played on the radio (even in Australia!) and received support from the likes of BBC Introducing West, Bath Radio and BBC Radio Bristol among others, where Martin Evans recently had her with her Christmas song "Coming Home To You".
She's currently preparing the release of her second EP, so keep your eyes peeled!
