December 2 - Marie White & Natsuma
Time & Location
About the Event
We're delighted to welcome back Marie White to Hilltop Sessions following an amazing set supporting Chris Difford at our very first session.
From humble beginnings busking in Rye at the age of 15, performing soulful ballads, most of which were written in the early hours of the morning in her family home, Marie began making a name for herself in and around her hometown of Hastings. Over the past 6 years she’s performed several shows without venturing too far from Sussex, slowly growing her name and crafting her skill – to the point where she entered (and won) Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition in 2019. A self-proclaimed ‘accidental musician’, Marie finds it hard to step away from her passion – she doesn’t want to write, she needs to write. She remains true to the “30-minute rule” – that a song should be fully formed within an episode of EastEnders – yet in those 30 minutes produces songs that could easily have taken months to craft. And it’s those very songs that helped her win a spot to grace the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury 2019.
Supporting Marie is the amazing talent that is Natsuma, an 18 year old singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist and producer who's been making music for over a decade. Natsuma writes, records and produces all her songs at home and takes inspiration from the likes of Nao, The 1975, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder and electronic music.
