Music // Coming up // Martha Tilston @The Poly
Martha Tilston @The Poly
With a voice like spiderwebbed 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 unforgettable journey through emotions and stories with their raw vocals, fresh melodies, thought-provoking lyrics, filmic movements, tasty beats and earthy baselines.
This show is based on her new album "NOMAD". NOMAD will invite you to make a fire outside under the stars, dive into a big green moon, fly over a world of robots and humans queuing together for the cinema, dance in a scribbled fever in a downstairs bar, be a fish swimming round a tank planning escape, climb out of the car and lie in the field asking what is the solution for our humanity and this tiny blue pearl we spin on….and to never dwell on the path not taken.
‘Martha Tilston has carved her niche with sharp, original songs that dissect the modern world. It is an engrossing set.. She captures both the harshness and enchantment of life, with the salt of sea air almost palpable.’ The Guardian
