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 The Fleece, Bristol. 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 Gothenburg, Sweden. Consequent singles Under the Weight and Feels Like Home showcase a textured, melancholic influence, and are emblematic of Marti’s elegantly simple songwriting, garnering plaudits from blogs and playlisters alike.

In 2018, Marti released a mini-album, VIII. Characterised by delicately intricate lyrics delivered in his intimate soft-spoken style, it has steadily been reaching a bigger audience and has amassed over half a million streams to date.

Upcoming single “Give Me Light” continues this artistic trajectory, placing ethereal vocals in an atmospheric setting drawing comparisons to Elliott Smith, Dustin Tebbutt and Bon Iver.
