Martha Tilston Australian Tour has been announced for the April!
Having had a break from live performing last year, UK folk songstress Martha Tilston returns to our shores to tour her latest critically acclaimed album ‘Lucy & The Wolves’, a stunningly beautiful selection of songs.
Martha is a captivating performer, an enchanting singer-songwriter blessed with a gloriously clear and seductively beautiful voice. Weaving her magic spell over listeners wherever she plays – from the concert hall to the campfire, from folk clubs to main festival stages – she is a rare gem who has the power to draw an audience into her world and create an intimate space.
After releasing two albums in a cult duo called Mouse, Martha’s first solo album, the low-key ‘Rolling’, was released in 2003. followed by her first full-scale album, ‘Bimbling’, in 2005, then a free download album, ‘Ropeswing’, the first to feature her band The Woods. In 2007, the critically acclaimed ‘Of Milkmaids & Architects’ was released and brought her to the attention of a more mainstream audience, and she was nominated for a BBC Folk Award.
Since then, Martha has been guest vocalist on the track “Pop Art Blue” which she contributed to Zero 7’s latest album ‘Yeah Ghost’, toured Europe and the UK, as well as headlining various prestigious UK Festivals. Despite her main stage appearances, Martha continues to adore small, underground, alternative festivals where she will still no doubt be found playing unannounced sets around the campfire at three in the morning…
