#2 of these is not the first song I heard Billie Marten (she went by a different surname at the time as I recall), but when I was watching that cover I spotted that she had also performed an original song for ont'sofa as well. This is that song. These days at sixteen, she is performing regular sessions on BBC Radio; the latest on Radio 1, and is a much sought after performer at any number of festivals.
Most valued to me as a guide to who she is is that she totally refused to follow the false-gold 'fame trail' of so many others; choosing to learn her trade and value her own skills, wanting to succeed because of her talent; not her marketing.
Actually she needs none; her talent is as great as any since the days of Joni Mitchell.
