Hannah White Live // Åsane

Hannah White began 2023 standing on the winner's podium at the Americana Music Association UK Awards, as a hugely popular winner for UK Song of the Year with the goosebump-inducing 'Car Crash.' But the London-based singer-songwriter described by Uncut as possessing "an expressive voice & measured songcraft" is one of those artists who is always about the next thing, and the exciting new album Sweet Revolution is a completely fresh adventure in her fast-expanding career. Released in November '23 the album reached #17 in the UK Official Americana charts and #14 in the Independent Album charts.

The record expands hugely on the outstanding "Americana noir" ambience of 2022's widely-praised About Time, of which Maverick wrote: "The emotion she conveys in her vocal delivery gives you chills as her words tug at your heart strings." Acoustic magazine called White "arresting and wholly believable. A voice you will want to protect and become besotted with," while W21 Music wrote of "the restraint, the range, the softness, the clarity...a masterpiece."

Indeed, when Deacon Blue's Ricky Ross heard the album's breezy, country-leaning track 'Broken Bird,' he was not only moved to play it immediately on his BBC Radio Scotland show, but to invite Hannah to open on his 2022 solo tour. They became fast friends, and long lines of new converts waiting to meet Hannah and buy her music at each show were testament to her persuasive performing talents.  
 
Follow all that, you might say, and she is. The opening single from the new album, 'Chains Of Ours,' is infectious with a percussive mood winning comparisons to a modern-day Fleetwood Mac. Hannah White was a special guest on Paul Carrack's 2023 autumn UK tour. Ahead of that, she and the band were delighting audiences throughout festival season at Glastonbury, Black Deer Festival, The Long Road Festival and more.
