Manchester based four piece Elephant Trees are a beautiful mess. 

Fronted by 20 year old Martha Phillips, her song writing is raw – she leaves nothing unsaid and watching them live is a master class in ‘doing what you love’. Expect high energy and heightened emotions.

Having played O2 Academy, Leeds to 2000 Trees Festival, toured Europe and graced the stage at The Royal Albert Hall – they are no stranger to a big crowd and an even bigger party!
