Hi, we are Platform 1, Will, Josh and Martha. We (Josh and Martha) started playing together when Martha was 12. I started playing guitar from an early age and as Martha developed an interest in it and songwriting, we decided to collaborate. Martha generally writes the lyrics and acoustic accompaniment and I write the rhythm and lead guitar parts. It is difficult to define our music but modern melodic folk with some electric and bass thrown in sums it up! We are based in south west Wales and often perform in Welsh.
We had been playing together for just over 3 years when Will joined us. Our musical influences are all quite different, with Martha's being pop and indie music and mine and Willâ??s being metal and rock. Martha's lyrics are written about her day to day life but more recently the three of us have been writing together and different themes are emerging.
We are adding drums and bass to our tracks giving them a much more rounded upbeat sound. We have played a variety of gigs both locally and elsewhere such as Bristol and places around Gloucestershire. We all love to perform live and always enjoy ourselves. We like smaller, more intimate gigs as it allows us to tell the story behind our songs. As well as writing and performing our own music we enjoy recording. We have some semi-professional recording equipment as studio time is expensive which means we can now record all of our songs from home. Recording has also allowed us to be a lot more creative musically and has driven us to write better, more interesting music.
