With a voice like spider-webbed hollows and lyrics that inspire and captivate, Martha and band have built a large worldwide following and played on some of the world's most prestigious stages and festivals. She has recorded and released several critically acclaimed albums, gained a nomination for BBC best newcomer, appeared as a guest vocalist for Zero 7, toured internationally and played with some of the world's most inspiring musicians.

The core band is made up of: Matt Tweed (bass bouzouki, 12 string), Matt Kelly (violin,effects, electric guitar) Camilo Tirado (tabla/ percussion). Together they present an unforgetable journey through emotions and stories with their raw vocals, fresh melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, filmic movements, tasty beats and earthy baselines.
