Last year I started writing material for my solo project. After finding the right producer (Jim Spencer) and the perfect studio (EVE studios) I set to work recording 4 tracks for an EP.

The songs Jim an I chose are personal songs of love, loss, and strength.
After being part of a duo I thought it important I to craft my identity sonically, and after talking through all my influences and record collection with Jim, we decide the main focus should be the voice. The songs are drenched in choral arrangements, accompanying the stripped, honest nature of the songs.
I drafted in musician friends and band mates to add their talent and creativity into the mix. Christian Maddens notorious fingers play Piano  and Hammond. Matthew Whitaker plays some characterful and subtle guitar parts. Roy Medhurst added a fair few celestial synth parts to the tracks and Richard Young punctuates the tracks with his solid tasteful beats.
The first track ‘Oliver’ will be released in June/July. There will be a video alongside the track too.
The EP will e released in late summer/autumn.
Thanks all x Hannah

1.11.17 More shows, new music!

Over the last few months I have released my E.P, played some wonderful shows, and had some radio play and  great reviews…

My favouite review was from For Folk Sake, which you can read here…

Jasmine had a few plays on BBC radio 6 too, which was so lovely!

I can tell you that releasing music independantly isn’t easy, its really hardwork, and at the sme time completely rewarding. It was worth every nail bitten and every wrinkle slightly more defined!! 

The highlight so far for me has been performing my songs live with my amazing band of good friends, especially the Hebden Bridge show at the Trades Club. This show was a SELL OUT and the first one in a run of intimate, and not so intimate (union chapel) shows.

So, whats next?!

Ill be releasing an exciting, cool remix from brilliant producer Harry Shadow. This will be in a few weeks time and Ill keep you all posted on that!

Also, Im hoping to be back in the studio in the new year as Ive been writing my socks off! 

I have a few more live shows coming up too, so have a look at my live page for more info!

                  Much love, H xx
