Spotlight!: Billie Marten

billie marten

Rising singer/songwriter Billie Marten may only be fifteen, but she has talent beyond her years. The stunning sparse arrangements on songs like ‘Bird’ and ‘Ribbons’ put her angelic voice at the forefront. Growing up listening to Nick Drake it should come as no surprise that she can craft a lyrically driven song with a blissful melody. Her talents don’t end there however, the melancholy ‘As Long As’ features some intricate acoustic fingerpicking and her unplugged cover of Royal Blood’s ‘Out of the Black’ is one of the best and most surprising cover versions I have heard in a long while.

Her latest EP ‘As Long As’ is out now and is sure to impress fans of Laura Marling, Birdy and Gabrielle Aplin.
