BORN IN ENGLAND AND RAISED IN FRANCE, OVER THE YEARS HANNAH FEATHERSTONE HAS DEVELOPED A LOVE FOR LANGUAGES AND THE PATTERNS  AND RHYTHMS OF SOUND. FROM AN EARLY AGE, SHE STUDIED CLASSICAL PIANO AND PERFORMED AS A SINGER IN GOSPEL CHOIRS. SHE LATER EXTENDED THE CHARACTER OF HER VOICE BY ENLARGING HER REPERTOIRE THROUGH IMPROVISATION IN JAZZ, WORLD AND INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC. THE COMPOSITIONS FROM HER FIRST SOLO ALBUM, COMFORT ZONE, ARE A REFLECTION OF THIS SUBTLE BLEND OF STYLES.

 

CURRENTLY LIVING IN PARIS, SHE IS MAKING HER MARK IN THE FRENCH MUSIC SCENE, PLAYING ALONGSIDE FRENCH ARTISTS IN ICONIC VENUES SUCH AS THE OLYMPIA, LE PARVIS DE NOTRE-DAME DE PARIS ET DU SACRÉ CŒUR, LA BELLEVILLOISE, LE ZÈBRE DE BELLEVILLE. HER COLLABORATIONS WITH ARTISTS FROM HOLLAND, GERMANY AND GREECE HAVE ENABLED HER TO DEVELOP A EUROPEAN FOLLOWING. SHE’S NOW KEEN TO RETURN TO HER ROOTS IN HER HOME-COUNTRY, ENGLAND.

 

HANNAH FEATHERSTONE IS COLLABORATING ON HER NEW MATERIAL WITH YOUNG FRENCH ELECTRO MUSICIAN, ESTIENNE RYLLE. HIS FRESH APPROACH TO SOUND PRODUCTION PROVIDES HER WITH A MINIMALIST BACKDROP THAT HIGHTLIGHTS THE RAW PRESENCE OF HER VOICE.
