HANNAH WHITE band show | CHRISTINA MARTIN duoDoors 18:45 | Live 19:15 | Finish 22:30
HANNAH WIHITE Band Show | Saturday 09 March. Thrilled to welcome back one of the UK's fastest-rising singer-songwriters, w guitarist Keiron Marshall and full band. A new album Sweet Revolution (about her life) on label The Last Music Company that includes Andy Fairweather Low, Jimmie Vaughan, Geraint Watkins and more. Tours with Paul Carrack and Ricky Ross/Deacon Blue have seen Hannah playing UK's top venues including The Royal Albert Hall. A Best UK Song AMAUK Award for 'Car Crash' got 2023 underway.
The searingly autobiographical song came from the About Time album, which won rave reviews across the UK and far beyond. Now comes Sweet Revolution, a bold new chapter in a singular story, in which White has confronted and overcome the formidable challenges that inform her lyrics and make her work so strikingly personal.
The album is produced by Michele Stodart of UK folk-pop mainstays the Magic Numbers who, like pedal steel player Holly Carter and drummer Emma Holbrook, is a regular member of Hannah's live band. Sweet Revolution features 11 new compositions, all written solely by White, who sings all lead vocals and plays acoustic guitar and, on the song 'One Foot,' dulcimer, percussion and even didgeridoo.
The album also includes notable contributions by Marshall on electric and baritone guitar and vocals; Lars Hammersland on Hammond and Rhodes; and other friends such as BRIT Award nominee Beth Rowley, multi-instrumentalist Daisy Chute and (on the closing 'A Separation') Deacon Blue frontman Ricky Ross, with whom White became fast friends after she supported him on his extensive UK and Irish tour in the autumn of 2022.
Says Hannah with her customary openness: “This is a collection of songs about going from growing up on a council estate, and all of the hopelessness, the sadness & the loneliness, to homelessness and then finding a sense of power through words and music, and becoming an artist. This is the sweet revolution in my life.”
With her brand new album Storm more sweeping and orchestral than ever before, Christina Martin is going from strength to strength. It’s a fine thing to be a lyrical troubadour with honest lyrics that cut like a razor, and it’s a fine thing to be a performer who can make hips shake and tears flow at the drop of a casual chord. But to hold both in the palm of your hand, as Martin does with such grace, is downright remarkable. Resolute, raw, and infinitely listenable, Christina Martin is like the wind. Her music can be gentle as a kiss upon your cheek, but if you’re caught off guard it can carry you away, and has the power behind it to blow your house down.”
