NEW MUSIC :: Hannah Bown

Meet the lovely Hannah Bown! 

Music student by day, Singer Songwriter by night, Hannah has just released her debut EP so I snapped up the chance to snap some photos of her and have a chat about her future plans, EP releases and get to know her a little better...

Tell me a little bit about yourself ::

"I like to think I'm a pretty happy person, I'm quite friendly, I love being around people as I'm a bit of an extravert and I completely buzz off other peoples energy! I am witty and sarcastic so I like making people laugh (even if they're laughing at my stupidity...!) I love dancing, watching romantic comedies, having wine and fancy meals - I like to feel posh, even though I'm not at all! I like adventures, I get bored with being in the same place, I love to travel."

What do you do?

"Well I’m a singer/songwriter obviously and I’m a student, so that takes up most of my time. I am hoping to do a PGCert after uni to go into music teaching and vocal coaching as I love teaching, it makes me feel good. Music is important to me but I also need a realistic money earning job as I would like to feel secure... and obviously so I can drink champagne every day haha!"

When did you get into music?

"From a very young age music and dance was always a big part of my life. I was always singing and I’m pretty sure I thought I was the next Britney! But from the age of 13, it became more real doing open mic nights and gigging working with my boyfriend at the time - we practiced a lot and music was a big part of my life. When your 14 and going through family struggle, that’s when it's easy to find an album and really connect to it. Mine was Avril Lavigne Let Go and Under My Skin albums, I used to scream them in my room at the top off my lungs! I studied music at college and since then I've been working with bands, gigging and really focusing on my music.

Are you currently working on anything exciting?

"Yes! My first EP launch for my original songs, which is super exciting! It was released on the 13th May on Soundcloud (you can download it here!) This was a huge step for me, writing and putting my own music out there and I'm excited for everyone to hear my stuff."

What are your future plans for your music career?

"At this point? I'm not too sure. Spending this year dedicating my time to writing and releasing my music was a huge thing for me, building a fanbase and an online presence was all new to me, I've always hidden away from it! I hope to release an album in the future."

Who are your biggest influences and inspirations? 

"I'm hugely influenced by 90's pop music, I'm pretty sure I'm actually stuck int he 90's! I'm really in to Gabrielle Aplin, Birdie, Lauren Aquilina, Adele, Daughter, London Grammar, Foxes and then R'nB stuff, like Ella Eyre & Rihanna."
