Martin Lloyd Chitty

“Undoubtedly one of the best songwiters ever to perform at Spotlight […] A brilliant lyricist, singer and musician… this is a gig not to be missed!”
Lancaster Spotlight Club, December 2017


Martin Lloyd Chitty is a singer-songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist and a composer, based in Lancaster, UK. His distinctive strain of atmospheric folk blends lyrical storytelling with impeccably crafted melodies.

On stage, Martin wears his heart on his sleeve, delivering a raw and emotive performance, his spine tingling baritone alternately murmuring and soaring over sparse instrumental arrangements.

Martin has opened for acts such as Great Lake Swimmers, King Creosote, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Baby Dee, Scout Niblett, Thomas Truax and The Coral.

In November 2017, Martin contributed the track ‘Christmas in a Field’ to the festive Cherryade Records compilation ‘A Very Cherry Christmas – Volume 12’.
