HANNAH SCOTT : 8pm
This is beautiful - Dermot OLeary, BBC Radio 2
She can cut it live as well as on record - MOJO Magazine
Much of the inspiration behind Hannah Scotts music can be found in her affinity with Italy. A year living and working in Tuscany in her late teens provided the backdrop to her early work.
She subsequently spent nine months travelling back and forth to the hilltop villages of Liguria to record her well-received EP Still Static. Now she has finally found her musical home at Stefano Della Casaâs Hertfordshire-based label and production company, Casa Music - or, as she puts it, her own little corner of Italy.
Hannahs latest release, Hurricanes, sees her collaborate with producer and multi-instrumentalist Stefano, whose influence and direction have been key to her progression both as a songwriter and performer. The single earned her an invitation to record a live session on Dermot OLearys BBC Radio 2 show and has been played by Bob Harris on Radio 2, as well as being chosen by BBC Introducing as their Track of the Week for BBC 3 Counties.
Praise for Hannahs distinctive voice, strong melodies and thought-provoking lyrics has arrived from influential publications such as MOJO, who shortlisted her from hundreds of entries for the
final of their New Voice competition and The Guardian, who handpicked her as their New Band of the Day. She can also be heard in CaffÃ¨ Nero, where she has been Artist of the Month in Costa and in bars and hotel chains around the world.
Her arresting live performances have earned her invitations to open for artists including Seth
Lakeman and 10cc and she has performed at renowned venues such as the Union Chapel as well, of course, as playing throughout Italy.
