Following the release of her fourth studio album Drop Cherries earlier this year, Billie Marten will head back out on the road this Winter. Billie is currently on the festival circuit across UK and Europe, including playing Edinburgh’s Connect on 27th August. She then heads stateside supporting Half Moon Run before returning to the UK to see the year out with her own headline dates.
Beginning at Liverpool’s Hangar 34, Billie will travel the country before culminating with a very special Christmas show at London’s KOKO on 9th December.
Drop Cherries marked the very first time that Billie had both written and co-produced (with Dom Monks) one of her records; following critically-lauded 2021 album Flora Fauna, Feeding Seahorses by Hand (2019) and Writing of Blues and Yellows (2016). The album was preceded by lead single This Is How We Move. Listen here.

Billie Marten got her early start in music thanks to parents who surrounded her with the music of Nick Drake, John Martyn, Joni Mitchell, Joan Armatrading, Kate Bush, Loudon Wainwright III and northern folk artist Chris Wood. The family lived in the cathedral city Ripon, North Yorkshire, where Billie grew up in and around the Dales. Billie was then signed to Chess Club Records, an imprint of Sony. Not long afterwards, she was nominated for the BBC Sound of 2016.
