March is the project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist alumnus Kitty O’Neal. Over the years her storytelling has evolved into a unique pool of sound, transcending the borders between contemporary folk, indie, pop and electronica. With thoughtful harmonic changes and an often through-composed style reminiscent of prog-rock and jazz, March has incorporated her diverse tastes into new album All of the Above.
All of the Above explores themes of dreams, identity, and memory, embracing the changes in relationships and the ebbs and flows of living. The album showcases March’s competent and introspective lyric-writing, her distinctive and emotive vocal performance, and moments of pure musical creativity. March cut her teeth as a solo artist on the Southampton/south UK coast music scene, and has performed across the south of England, including multiple slots at Glastonbury and Sofar Sounds.

March will be joined by her string quartet to add yet another layer to her cathartic performance at Turner Sims.

Stunning, ethereal sounds crafted around thought provoking lyrics. March is a gifted songwriter and has a voice you will want to listen to again and again. Stephanie Newenhouse, BBC Introducing Solent

Her ear for an irresistible pop hook allows her to build something joyful, hopeful, and undeniably catchy. It’s a sign of a great songwriter when we find ourselves clicking play for the fifth time in a row. Folkroom Records
