First Light

Martha’s new EP First Light was released on 16th September 2022, featuring the single To Be Happier.

The songs on this EP explore Martha’s battle with insomnia and postnatal depression (she became a first-time mother not long before the pandemic struck), and self-worth (A Troubled Mind). The EP closes on a lighter, more positive note with To Be Happier, reminiscent of Carole King or Randy Newman.

In collaboration with composer Jon Hargreaves, the EP features a vast array of orchestral instruments recorded across the globe, from Scotland to Singapore.
Mixed by two-time Grammy winning engineer
Brian Losch (New York).

Here Comes the Snowstorm

“One of the most positive, true-to-life listening experiences I’ve had the grateful pleasure of indulging in this entire year … a quintessentially warm record to get all cosied up to as a distraction from the cold, harsh winter weather”
– Small Music Scene

A Better Man

“The steps it takes to be a better man / Affects every inch of me, ‘til I succumb”

When Shadows Return to the Sea

“The sort of debut album most young singer/songwriters probably dream about making … an utterly enchanting debut.” ****
– Northern Sky Magazine

The State Of The Art

“This rare gem is tender and haunting, and there is something quite unique about this Leicester songstress.” “Enigmatic and sobering”
– The Monograph

“... the album will make you want to catch a train to the shore and watch the scenery go by slowly. ”
