HATTIE BRIGGS : 8pm
Hattie Briggs is coming to play at UTEA for the second time on Saturday 17th November - this time as a trio. Doors will open at 7:30pm, music at 8pm.
For those of you who didn’t attend her first concert here in 2017, Hattie Briggs is a 25 year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Recently named Fender Undiscovered Artist of the Year 2017, she won the prize of supporting Lucy Rose at the prestigious O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire. Her music brings together pop, folk and electronic influences, which she delivers with honesty and intent.
Since making the decision to drop out of a Russian degree in her second year at Oxford University, she has released several EPs, two critically acclaimed albums, had airplay on BBC Radios 1, 2, and 6 Music, and embarked on tours around the UK, the Netherlands and the U.S. During her travels she has supported some well known bands and artists, including chart topping duo, Ward Thomas, at the O2 London’s Brooklyn Bowl, Lauren Aquilina, Stornoway, Jamie N Commons, Seth Lakeman and Grant Nicholas (Feeder). Influenced by Goldfrapp, Foy Vance and Jeff Buckley, Hattie writes and sings straight from the heart. Her crystalline vocals, and insightful lyrics resonate across all ages, rekindling old memories and capturing imaginations. Combined with catchy melody lines and a cheeky, charismatic stage presence, it's unsurprising the youngster is seriously impressing industry figures and fans alike.
