We have someone very special for our next LCM 'Artist Of The Week', Hannah White. We were eagerly waiting for the release of Hannah's excellent new album 'Elephant Eye', before we shared this feature with you. Hannah and husband Keiron Marshall are some of the loveliest people in town. I'm privileged to call them friends and have them as a very valued part of our LCM core team. As well as being very talented in their own right, they also only run one of the best small venues in town, the multi-award winning The Sound Lounge now based in Wimbledon.
Hannah has battled her way to gaining a loyal following of fans around the UK, whilst maintaining a wholly independent approach to her career. Her music is influenced by country, blues, folk, pop and soul but has a fresh sound coupled with a social conscience that remains distinctly her own. With a voice that can switch from a sweet Nashville ballad to a heartfelt and reflective song full of blues, her songs draw from a rich well of life experiences and have been heard on the national airwaves of BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio, Chris Country Radio as well major regional UK radio shows such as; BBC London, BBC Kent, BBC Merseyside, BBC Manchester & BBC Introducing as well as being played on international TV several times on the 'Keep It Country' show.
Hannah has wowed audiences at shows with multi-Grammy Award winning Tim O’Brien, Thea Gilmore, Laurence Fox, Judie Tzuke and Ben Haenow, headlined at a sold-out Union Chapel in London, performed for Whispering Bob Harris, performed at major festivals and picked up press plaudits from R2 Magazine, Country People Magazine, Blues Matters and many more.
The future looks bright for Hannah's and her music and we are hoping that The Sound Lounge will soon find a great new permanent home in London. It is a venue that we wholeheartedly support here at LCM and we look forward to running more of our LCM gigs in collaboration with the new venue in the future.
