HEROIDES - CASSETTE
Martha combines haunting vocals with an airy sound comprising sharp violin (Joscelin Dent-
Pooley) bass and delicate synths (Patrick Fitzgerald). She notes attending a PJ Harvey gig aged 7 as a highly transformative moment and this is evident within Martha’s music.
In 2013 she was the featured singer on Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ album ‘Push the Sk Away’ and accompanied him as a backing vocalist on the respective tour.
Martha was brought up in South East London and studied History of Art at Cambridge University.
In Martha’s music, explorations of contemporary life in London are assimilated with references to
classical mythology, literature, poetry and abstract storytelling.
This talent spills into other disciplines such as acting; she is currently preparing for an opera
performance at the V&A. This performative element makes her live show especially intimate and evocative.
