Live Music Session #117 – Hannah Rose Platt + Jules Hill

It is one of the pleasures of cultivating a great live music fan base that you get to be able to bring peoples favourites back, so we were super-excited to be able to welcome back by popular demand the brilliant Hannah Rose Platt. What’s more, to make this an even more special show, she brought her band with her!

Hannah Rose Platt is an acclaimed and talented singer-songwriter, guitarist, and storyteller, who merges the sinister authorial prowess of Nick Cave and Tom Waits with the gilded Americana of Bobbie Gentry and Emmylou Harris.

Platt was born and raised in Liverpool UK, where she wrote her first songs and played her first shows and is now based in London after working hard to become an established figure on the UK music scene. She recorded her debut offering ‘Portraits’ in Nashville in 2015 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, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss) and Andrea Zonn (James Taylor). ‘Portraits’ was released independently to widespread critical acclaim, receiving 5star and 4star reviews across the board after which, she was invited to legendary BBC broadcaster Bob Harris’ home to record a live session for his ‘Under the Apple Tree’ youtube channel.

‘Letters Under Floorboards’, the highly anticipated follow-up album focuses on celebrated lyrical story-telling with striking and arresting personal narratives.

Hannah has recently finished recording her third album, a collection of ghostly folk-rock narratives, with trusted producer Ed Harcourt.

Championed by broadcasters Sid Griffin, Baylen Leonard and Ralph McLean, Hannah has also had TV sync successes, with several tracks used for Channel 4, and regular airplay on BBC, national and international radio. Her latest video ‘Chanel and Cigarettes’ debuted on SKY and Freeview TV, and she has also performed live on BBC One.
