“It’s been weird being in the studio and in my living room at the same time haha. Grilled Cheese is a dissection of a relationship. Daft arguments about about food prep, bouncing off each other negatively, jealousy, but in the end still believing things are going to get better.”
‘Grilled Cheese’ is the first single off of her upcoming EP ‘Summer Up North’. The whole EP was recorded during lockdown via Zoom.
Martha left her rural Scottish home aged 17 to busk her way around Europe, before settling down in Newcastle and throwing herself into the UK music scene. The industrious and ambitious artist, is filled with desires to push her music, ever further.
Like all musicians, Martha’s 2020 has been turned on its head by coronavirus. Taking this in her stride, she recorded and released an acoustic EP featuring versions of tracks from debut EP ‘Be Still’. The entire EP was recorded by Hill in her living room, and mixed by bandmate Rob Griffiths. It received national airplay, and was championed by BBC Introducing as well as BBC 6music. With the help of the Do It Differently Fund, Hill is currently working remotely with producer Julien Flew on her next project. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you carve your own path in life, and Martha’s journey is only just beginning.
Martha brings the zest of Kings Of Leon within her vocal folds. Adding the vexing and complex underlying of a very personal lyrical grating, Martha’s gumption and prodigious talents, explain much as the future is in her sights. And just like she’d planned, it’s on its way, the way she deems it so.
