HOT VOX Presents: Marta Per // Katy Bates // Issy Winstanley // Veronica // Hazl
The Workshop is a little gem of a discovery underneath the Roadtrip Bar on Old Street. With an underground hacienda feel, this sweatbox venue is the perfect setting for bands cutting their teeth on the scene, or those wanting to get up close and personal with the crowd.

After being part of several bands, Marta is now embarking on a solo journey, drawing inspiration from pop, rock and jazz as well as her classical roots. Her lyrics, usually reflective, observational and at times filled with self-deprecating humour, take us through the motions of growing older, navigating emotions and trying to make sense of life.Katy Bates
