Hannah Clive is a multi-genre singer songwriter, performer and musician from an established family background in British television and film, writing and recording from an early age. Mentored by the foremost musicians and creatives in the business, she’s either sat in on or performed with the cream of British recording talent since the nineties including: Elton John’s The Circle of Life, Kylie, Robbie Williams, Bjork, Jools Holland, Bryan Ferry, Alison Moyet, beginning with Right Said Fred and Chris de Burgh –then touring America with The Who aged just eighteen.
Encouraged by her peers, Hannah’s first EP in 2012 was produced by Brian Tench (Bee Gees, Kate Bush) whom she still works alongside and mastered by The Who’s Jon Astley. Her influences are wide ranging – so are her songs! Whether it’s a catchy Americana, Sheryl Crow, country-like pop tune; a soulful, blues-ey Adele meets Springfield torch song; Lana Del Rey melancholia or Morisette’s rock female angst you’re after – a simple Janis Ian-style acoustic ‘Seventeen’ or Hannah’s smoky vocal, song writing prowess on The Herbaliser’s jazz hip-hop hit ‘The Lost Boy’.
Described as: “A cross of soul and country and rock, as if Dolly Parton had child with Marvin Gaye and the result was the new Janis Joplin”.
In 2017 she released the single “Remember to Breathe”, a shimmering, reflective tune. Follow the bandcamp link below to have a listen!
