“You can’t really say she sounds like anyone you’ve ever heard before but somehow you feel like you’ve known these songs all your life.”
Hannah Scott has been writing music since her early teens but it was a year spent in Tuscany that inspired her to start performing more seriously. She has self-released an album and two EPs which showcase her lyrically intelligent songs and distinctive voice, attracting interest from industry and audiences alike. Last year, Hannah found herself back in Italy where she recorded a new EP alongside up and coming producer Stefano Della Casa. Among the musicians to perform on the record is keyboard player Dave Clayton, best known for his work with Simply Red.
In July 2011, Hannah reached the final of MOJO Magazine’s New Voice competition. She was invited to perform at London’s prestigious Gibson Guitar Studio where panellist and legendary BBC 6 DJ Tom Robinson described her performance as “clear, assured, melodic, memorable”.
National airplay and further gigs across the UK and Italy, including shows alongside Ed Sheeran and support slots with folk favourites Cara Dillon and Seth Lakeman, have helped Hannah to build a solid fanbase and her forthcoming EP will be sure to achieve the wider recognition it deserves.
