Martha Ffion - 21st July
Martha Ffion is the musical project of Glasgow-based Irish songwriter Claire Martha Ffion McKay. Building on the promise she showed with her first self-released EP, Go in 2014, Martha’s sound has continued to bloom, leading to her signing with Turnstile – home to Cate Le Bon, Gruff Rhys and more. Her recent releases, Wallflower and We Disappear - featured on new EP 'Trip'- showcase her unique style, where classic 60s songwriting meets dream pop, justifying the hugely impressive support Martha Ffion has already received from Marc Riley, Jo Whiley, Mary Anne Hobbs, Huw Stephens and John Kennedy.
Following festival appearances at End of the Road and Latitude, Martha Ffion completed a successful UK tour in October 2016 with support from PRS for Music Foundation‘s Women Make Music initiative. With GoldFlakePaint citing Martha Ffion as “an artist that seems ready-made for wider acclaim” and Clash calling her “an intriguing talent” this is one of the most promising young artists around.
