Martin Stilwell Bathed In Light

Bathed in Light is Martin Stilwells' first solo EP - an eclectic debut collection of homemade recordings, taking in alternative pop, melodic folk, and electronica.  Rooted in the traditions of classic song-writing, with echoes of Neil Young and Elliot Smith, these songs are delivered through a decidedly English filter, with production influenced by the likes of Four Tet.

Stilwell is a singer songwriter who has been making music for over 20 years. He first started writing and performing as a teenager, and went on to front the Liverpool-based outfits Alterkicks and Dead Cities.  He has performed all over the UK, including shows at Glastonbury and T in the Park, and has worked with Stephen Street.

After an 8 year hiatus, Stilwell is now breaking out on his own.

"sonic minimalism and contemplative downbeat lyrics utilising the contradiction of sadness and joy, despondency and hope... a tantalising mixture allowing for simple songcraft and spatial texture to rest side by side"
