Hannah Rose Platt | Songwriting Tutor | ICMP London

Hannah Rose Platt is a Liverpudlian singer-songwriter, steeped in the traditions of American country music. She has toured extensively in the UK and USA and recorded with Grammy Award-winning musicians. Her songs have often been played on radio and TV.

Picking up a guitar at the age of five and teaching herself to play, Hannah’s musical education came courtesy of her step-father’s record collection, into which she would dive voraciously, drawing inspiration from a wide variety of music. In the spring of 2015, she released her debut album Portraits to widespread critical acclaim. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, Portraits features some of the industry’s leading names, including Grammy award-winning musicians Mark Fain, (Ricky Skaggs, Dolly Parton), Stuart Duncan (Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss) and Jeff Taylor (The Time Jumpers, Elvis Costello). It received widespread airplay on BBC Radio, Resonance FM, Amazing Radio, and Europe's leading country radio station CMR Nashville. The song ‘1954’ was featured several times in the TV soap Hollyoaks and Hannah was invited to the home of legendary BBC presenter, Bob Harris, to film an Under the Apple Tree Session for Whispering Bob TV. She has also appeared several time on Liverpool’s Local TV Channel BAY TV.

Hannah recently delivered a Masterclass lecture on songwriting at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. She was included in Glamour magazine’s ‘Summer Soundtrack 2015’ feature. She is currently based in London, writing her second album and gigging across the UK with a fantastic five-piece band.
