HANNAH WHITE AND THE NORDIC CONNECTIONS
FRIDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER 2021, HANNAH WHITE AND THE NORDIC CONNECTIONS
Hannah White’s music is influenced by country, blues, folk and soul and has a fresh sound coupled with a social conscience that remains distinctly her own with a voice that can switch from a sweet ballad to a heartfelt and reflective blues song to an upbeat rocky number.
In December 2018 she was invited along with her guitarist husband Keiron Marshall to play a show in Bergen, Norway with home town band The Nordic Connections. It was a night she will never forget. The Chemistry on stage was off the scale. Everyone discovered that they all shared a deep love of roots music. Before they left the venue they decided that they would make a record live, the way they used to and to capture the sound they had just created together.
The resulting album was released in June 2020 to critical acclaim. It has been featured on Radio 2, BBC6 Music, Radio London, Regional Radio and numerous European stations. Together, Hannah, Kieron and the band created an album that is both current and deeply rooted in 70’s Americana. It is spontaneous and thoroughly enjoyable.
Now they have decided to tour the UK together. The band is made up of Hannah on vocals and guitars, Kieron on Electric Guitar and backing vocals. HP Gundersen on pedal steel and slide guitar, Lars Hammersland on piano, Oyvund Storli Hoel on bass guitar and Ole Ludvig Kruger on drums.
Prior to the collaboration with The Nordic Connections, the London born singer songwriter established herself as one of the UK’s fresh talents, via her solo albums Who’s Side are to On (2016) and Elephant’s Eye (2018).
A raft of positive reviews followed and singles from both albums won airplay on Radio 2 and BBC London. Radio picked up on Hannah’s singular melodic voice and lyrical flair and signposted her stirring live shows that often included Kieron accompanying her. She has wowed audiences whilst supporting the likes of Tim O’Brien, Thea Gilmore and Judie Tzuke. She has performed at many major festivals and picked up press plaudits from R2, Maverick and Blues Matters magazines.
