ABOUT

Following the release of his debut EP "Istanbul" in 2016 Marti embarked on a UK tour, playing a string of venues across the south of England, including The Troubadour in Earl's Court and Bristol's The Fleece. The songs were born out of an early exposure to the 1960's folk tradition, and were founded with vocal harmony at the forefront.

In 2017, looking for a new challenge in search of creative progression, Marti left England and started afresh in Sweden, where the sparse northern landscapes and minimalist aesthetic of the Scandinavian lifestyle have affected his work. New singles “Under the Weight and “Salt” showcase a more textured, melancholic nuance to the writing, which characterised by delicately intricate lyrics delivered in his intimate, soft-spoken style have drawn comparisons with Simon & Garfunkel, Fleet Foxes and The National.

The release of his recent single, “Feels Like Home” is emblematic of Marti’s elegantly simple songwriting, garnering plaudits from blogs and playlisters alike. It continues to propel thousands of monthly listeners to discover his songs, and promises an exciting future for Marti's music.

In 2018, Marti released a mini-album, "VIII”. Written, recorded and produced by the songwriter, it has been steadily reaching a bigger audience, and has already amassed over quarter of a million streams to date.
