Anna Tivel is a Portland, Oregon singer/songwriter who creates lyric-driven folk/Americana songs. A nationally touring artist with a deep love of quiet stories, Anna is beginning to carve a place for herself in the songwriting world.
Jeffrey Martin is a singer/songwriter, born in San Antonio, Texas. His music is not widely known, which is a shame, because he might be the best songwriter in Portland. With lyrics that read like Raymond Carver stories and a voice that’s one breath away from breaking completely apart, Martin’s songs are beautiful, sparse, and utterly devastating.
As often as they can, Anna and Jeffrey tour together – Anna plays fiddle and mandolin and Jeffrey guitar.
This is their first visit to the UK and ours is one of only five shows on this tour – and the only one north of Norwich so I’m very pleased we have the opportunity to bring them to Leeds.
Jeffrey Martin – “Jeffrey Martin’s Dogs in the Daylight is as close to a masterpiece as a folk album by an emerging singer-songwriter can get”
Anna Tivel – “ I’m just going to put it on the table: Heroes Waking Up is one of the finest albums I’ve reviewed here. There is not a single song on here that is easily forgettable, much less filler”
