Isaac Gracie has announced that the support on his November tour will be the incredible singer songwriter Billie Marten.

Billie has gained widespread acclaim for an emotive lyricism that belies her youth. Aged just 16, the Yorkshire musician is influenced by John Martyn, Laura Marling and Damien Rice, among others who she saw in concert as a kid.

At the age of eight, given a small, pink guitar and taught four chords by her dad, she wrote her first ‘proper’ song.

“I rearranged the four chords and realised I could make a song that wasn’t just a copy of Blower’s Daughter,” says Billie. “It was called I’m Gonna Run and it was about, er, a train. Obviously, it was awful.”

2014 was a breakout year for the young artist, who caught the attention of BBC Introducing and Burberry with her debut single and EP, Ribbon.

The four songs on new EP As Long As are as remarkable for their beguiling beauty as for the age of their singer. All are at once intimate and airy with enchanting lyrics sung with the purest of voices.

Billie is supporting Isaac Gracie on Saturday, November 24 at AMATA, Falmouth University.

Tickets are £14.30, available at
