SHY Martin is Anna Kornelia Åberg, and the talent is ALL in.
“I spent hours and hours writing on my bed with it, and if not there it was on a little pier by a lake next to our house. A few years ago when I moved to Stockholm I stopped writing songs that way. This past summer me, my brother and two of my closest friends and co-writers Nirob and Litens went to spend a weekend at my parents’ place in the countryside where I grew up. We ended up bringing the guitar everywhere we went. It was the first time in years I’d even held the guitar, but I guess going back to where it all started made me feel like nothing had really changed.”
In 2019 also saw SHY Martin complete her first European headline tour, which traversed 14 cities and stunned audiences with her electrifying live show. SHY also supported Nina Nesbitt last December at her London show.
Previous single ‘Make Us Never Happen’ debuted with Forbes and saw top placement across many Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ playlists. Summer 2019 single ‘Same Old’ and spring 2019 release ‘Out of My Hands’ were equally well-received with support from the likes of V Magazine, PAPER, Idolator, and The Line of Best Fit, among others.
‘Slow’ is part of the upcoming new EP, slated for later in 2020.
