Vespertine

Vespertine

After Newbury's :heckler disbanded, frontwoman Hayley Martin didn't have to wait long before teaming up with a group of musicians to form Vespertine - a band that combines powerful rock with Hayley's golden roaring voice. Find out more below.


Vespertine came into being in September 2004, when ex-heckler front-woman Hayley Martin hooked up with Matt Hanson, Tad MacDonald, Dan Western and Kennerdeigh Scott - a collaboration of experienced musicians from Berkshire and London who had been seeking a new singer.

On the 11th November 2004, Vespertine hit the music scene with their debut electric set at The Star, Guildford, which was met with rapturous applause.

Based in Newbury, Vespertine’s well-constructed rock sound can be seen as influenced by many artists including Coheed & Cambria, AFI, Smashing Pumpkins, Deftones, Skunk Anansie, A Perfect Circle, Massive Attack, Thrice, Alanis Morrisette, The Meters and many more.

Vespertine are gigging extensively in the areas of Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey and beyond, with a set of original material including tracks from the bands three track e.p, “For Felicity” recorded in November 2004

“One of the UK’s hottest new female fronted bands - a must see”
RSW Promotions

“Vespertine come across as soulful, sincere and seriously committed, undoubtedly their future shows will take the already expectant music scene by storm.”
