Hannah Rose Platt is an enchanting singer songwriter who specialises in Americana country music with storytelling at its heart.
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 cliches, 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 young daughter from prison.
Lyrics are the mainstay of her work, while subtle acoustic arrangements form an uplifting backdrop. She plays with sentiment without being saccharine, focusing on optimism infused with realism and honesty.
Born in Liverpool, Hannah began playing the guitar when she was five, after teaching herself how to play. Her musical education came from her stepfather who she would diligently watch play the guitar. Having played gigs around the country, 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 debut album, entitled Cinematics, was created in Nashville where she worked with some of the industry's leading names. Baillie and the Boys' Michael Bonagura assumed the controls, as Grammy award-winning musicians Mark Fain (Ricky Skaggs, Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton) and Stuart Duncan (Emmylou Harris, Mark Knopfler, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss) collaborated on many of the album's tracks. The album is due for release this summer.
