BILLIE MARTEN Writing Of Blues And Yellows (RCA)
Ive been a fan of this 17 year-old singer/songwriter since I first found some songs posted online in 2011, when she was just 12. I could tell even then that she would follow in the footsteps of Laura Marling, and her debut album has proved me right. The songs are exquisite, and her superb vocals are underpinned by some classy acoustic guitar on these beautiful folk-infused tracks. Get in early for the next big thing.
