Hannah Rose Platt is an enchanting singer-songwriter and talented guitarist who specializes in Americana / folk
music, with storytelling at its heart. She recorded her debut album Portraits in Nashville last year (produced by
Michael Bonagura- Baillie & the Boys) where she worked with some of the industry's leading names, Grammy
award-winning musicians Mark Fain, (Ricky Skaggs, Dolly Parton) Stuart Duncan (Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton,
The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss) and Jeff Taylor (The Time Jumpers, Elvis
Her melodic, poetic and accessible music offers self-written narratives to ordinary people who had no one to
unfurl their stories; tales of luck, stoicism, loneliness, love, heartbreak and hope. While avoiding clichés, she
warmly builds characters like an author, penning songs that almost eavesdrop on other people's lives. 1954 is
told through the eyes of an elderly woman suffering from dementia who waits every night for her husband to pick
her up as she recalls their first date, while Birthday Card is a tender letter from a mother written to her daughter
from prison. Lyrics are the mainstay of her work, while subtle acoustic arrangements and beautiful guitar hooks
form an uplifting backdrop. Hannah’s stories get under your skin…she plays with sentiment without being
saccharine, focusing on optimism infused with realism and honesty.
Born and raised in Liverpool, Hannah began playing the guitar when she was five, teaching herself how to play.
Her musical education came from her stepfather who would encourage her to listen to a wide variety of music,
scouring his extensive record collection for inspiration for her. Having played gigs around the country and in the
USA, she launched her debut EP in 2013. The title track has received considerable airplay on BBC Radio
Merseyside, Wrecking Ball Radio and Europe's leading country radio station CMR Nashville. Her support slots to
date include Roddy Frame, Gina Villalobos, Lisa Redford, Jarrod Dickenson & David Ford among others.
Hannah is now based in London and is gigging with a fantastic five-piece band, Kate Robinson on fiddle (Sam
Smith, Elbow, The Shires) Ryan Trebilcock on double bass, Nicholas Smalley on Drums and Ryan Williams on
electric guitar/mandolin. Hannah released Portraits independently in the UK March 16th 2015.
