THE SEA

TRADITIONAL FOLK SONGS ABOUT THE SEA, COLLECTED, SUNG AND PLAYED WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS - KITH & KIN

FROOTS ***** "A hugely effective album, with each song presented not merely as words to be sung and melodies to be played, but as the ties that bind - lifelines connecting family and friends, through the shifting tides of circumstance"

SONGLINES **** "Martha Tilston's finest album to date"

GUARDIAN **** "an engrossing set that captures both the harshness and enchantment of maritime life, with the salt of sea air almost palpable"


TELEGRAPH **** "a very assured album"


FRUK "The Sea is a powerful statement of the journey that Martha has been on and is  brilliantly conceived from start to finish....a beguiling record of captivating beauty"


FATEA"a special album at a unique point in Martha's musical journey, a sea spell woven for our ears, an oceanic folk delight"


ENGLISH DANCE & SONG "A delicate, attentive compendium of songs neatly woven together with Martha's idiosyncratic hummingbird vocals"

FOLK LONDON "Nine tracks, each one a gem"


MOJO "The cycle of sea songs are beautifully sung and atmospherically arranged in unusual ways"

ROCK N REEL "The Sea manages to combine the potency of the traditional material with Martha's rich and sensitively nuanced interpretations" 

ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE "Over (the whole album), Martha's voice soars like a siren, cajoling, beautiful and unlike anything else in the folk miasma"
