Inspired originally by the earlier sounds of folk artists such as James Taylor, Nick Drake, John Martyn and Joni Mitchell, London based artist Hattie Whitehead takes influence from both old and new music, drawing upon the eclectic range of musical styles she has been surrounded by throughout life. Distinguished by the purity of her vocal tones and crystal clear delivery, her experience of playing, singing and listening to folk, jazz, soul, alternative and many more genres has led Hattie to develop a style that is melodic, soulful, heartfelt and often unpredictable. The release of her debut EP 'Home' prompted radio play from stations including BBC and Amazing Radio, and a sell-out launch gig at St Pancras Old Church in London. Highlights of Hattie's journey since the release of 'Home' have included bookings at top UK festivals such as Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Field Day and Cambridge Folk Festival, support for up and coming and established artists such as Howard Rose and Beth Rowley and in more recent months winning third prize in Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Competition. Now working on her next release, Hattie's eagerness to push boundaries with her music and cross genres has led her to work on tracks that hold her folk roots whilst gesturing towards a brand new, fresh and powerful sound.

'Hattie's got the sort of talent that means in a couple of years' time we'll all be boasting about being here tonight' - For Folk's Sake

'...this talent deserves a spotlight.'

Artist's Statement:

Alive with a dynamic expressive energy the landscapes of Jeannette Hayes resonate with a liberated optimistic creativity.
In works that are constructed out of lines and blocks of evocative colour, abstract activity is finely balanced with landscape reference. A love of the exquisiteness and drama of the natural world conveys itself in the drawn marks, gestures and accents of colour. Colour plays a central role - titles often contain a colour: ‘Spring Green’, ‘Orange Mousa’, or ‘Blue Snowing’ - setting an ambient mood to the recording of her experience of a place. This gives the works a poetic quality that is in keeping with the way they were conceived.
