Hannah Scott [Free entry lounge show]

Don't Miss Out
Time: Wednesday 7.30pm
Cost: Free Entry!

Hannah Scott draws much of the inspiration for her music from her affinity with Italy. A year living and working on an olive press in rural Tuscany in her late teens provided the backdrop to her early work and she has found her musical home with creative partner Stefano Della Casa who she met in London but may well have met years earlier when regularly passing through the train station he was working in!

When they began making music together, they realised they had an amazing connection, despite very different backgrounds: Stefano had a difficult upbringing and a troubled early adult life, while Hannah was lucky to have a supportive, happy childhood. Hannah has had her own difficulties following the recent diagnosis of a form of arthritis which causes severe joint pain and fatigue. Both artists firmly believe that their musical collaboration has provided an outlet to support each other through difficult times. Their musical journey has also proved fruitful with previous releases supported by Bob Harris and Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2. They’ve also been featured by MOJO and as ‘New Band of The Day’ in The Guardian. Hannah has opened for artists including Seth Lakeman and 10cc.

The pair are now working between London and Italy and the result is a new album, “Pieces Of The Night”, out in June. It’s a collection of songs that combines organic, live elements with classy electronica and stunning production. Lyrically, they’re honest songs about the human condition and human connection in an increasingly hectic world. Hannah and Stefano draw on their own experiences, lyrically exploring the need to push on through the hard times, no matter how dark they may seem.

“She is really, really good.” – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“Hannah’s New Voice entry immediately made those at MOJO HQ want to hear more. Tonight she proved she can cut it live as well as on record.” – MOJO Magazine

“I hope you’ve never heard of her so I can be the one to introduce you to her!” – Mark Forrest, BBC regional radio across England

“I think there’s a whole country just waiting to discover her – and I hope they do.” – Nick Coffer, BBC 3 Counties

“One of the best songwriters to come out of Suffolk in the last 30 years.” – Stephen Foster, BBC Suffolk
