Martha Tilston is an English singer, songwriter and guitarist. Her music combines many aspects of English and Irish folk music with more modern acoustic styles, and perceptive lyrics combining personal subjects with political, social and environmental themes.

She is the daughter of acclaimed songwriter Steve Tilston and step-daughter of singer Maggie Boyle, and began writing songs at an early age. After attending drama school, she formed Mouse with guitarist Nick Marshall. They released two albums: Helicopter Trees (2000) and Tales (2001), and played many gigs and festivals throughout the UK and Ireland. Martha’s solo debut, Rolling, was self-released in 2003, followed by Bimbling in 2004. In 2005 she assembled The Woods, including members of semble, to record RopeSwing, which was given away as a free download. 2006 saw a full UK tour and the release of Of Milkmaids And Architects, which earned her a nomination for best new act in the BBC Folk Awards.

Her latest album Lucy And The Wolves was released in April 2010, and the remainder of the year spent playing live, including supporting Beth Nielsen Chapman on her UK dates.
