LONDON & CARDIFF LIVE SHOWS IN APRIL

IMG_7680Hannah Grace has released her new single ‘The Bed You Made’ through Never Fade Records. The track is the first to be taken from her new EP of the same name, out April 5th ahead of her headline shows in London and Cardiff, and was featured in Spotify’s New Music Friday today.

Subtle, minimal instrumentation provides the backdrop for Hannah’s incredible and emotive vocals on ‘The Bed You Made’. The soft piano tones accompany rich, moving vocal crescendos, which accentuate the track’s touching lyrics. The video for the single is filmed from the perspective of Hannah’s ex, following her in a continuous shot while she explains how she’ll be better on her own.

“I wrote ‘The Bed You Made’ after being hurt by someone I loved,” says Hannah. “It is definitely the most honest and raw song I’ve ever written and I’m actually a little nervous to share it with the world, but writing the song helped me to reach the conclusion that I am ok on my own. Heartbreak is hard, but ultimately I think if we are good to ourselves we’ll be alright in the end. So, this song is for anyone who’s been cheated on by an ex, I hope this song can give you the courage to be okay on your own.“

Throughout the rest of the EP, Hannah’s incredible vocal abilities take centre stage amid minimalist musicality, with stripped back and raw production echoing its lyrical content. The result is a moving and timeless collection of tracks that ranges between the uplifting and gloriously cathartic. The EP was co-written with her friends and collaborators Martin Luke Brown, Gabrielle Aplin and Jessica Sharman.

‘The Bed You Made’ follows the release of previous singles ‘With You’ and ‘Oh River’, both of which proved hits at radio, with plays from both Dermot O’Leary on his Radio 2 show and BBC Radio Wales respectively. She’s also appeared on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Zoe Ball’s ITV programme, in addition to a slot at the BBC Biggest Weekend for Radio 2 in Perth, Scotland.

Hannah Grace closed 2018 with the release of the collaborative Christmas EP December alongside Gabrielle Aplin. The lead single and title track featured on 14 ‘New Music Friday’ Spotify playlists, and was spotlighted in the UK and US Top 10, as well as being played on Radio 2. The EP also featured three beautiful covers of classic Christmas tracks.

Hannah first caught the attention of Never Fade label owner Gabrielle Aplin through her covers uploaded onto YouTube. Her covers have since gone on to win over even more high profile supporters and Gabrielle signed her to Never Fade Records, which is distributed worldwide by AWAL.

In 2017 Hannah garnered praise from Lady Gaga after posting a cover of her hit ‘Million Reasons’, which provoked Gaga to tweet the video and call Hannah a “superstar”. Meanwhile in the same year her cover of ‘Praise You’ soundtracked the Lloyds Bank TV advert and clocked up over 3 million streams.

‘The Bed You Made’ is the latest taste of brand new music from Hannah, with her show stopping performance setting the precedent for the year ahead when she is set to turn even more heads.

Dan Owen has revealed the video for his acoustic piano version of ‘Icarus’, the latest track to be taken from his upcoming debut album, out later this year through Atlantic Records. In this new acoustic version, the rich instrumentation of the original gives way to haunting solo piano, accentuating the raw power of Owen’s vocals and transforming the track into an intimate and atmospheric account of despair and lamentation.

Released earlier this month, ‘Icarus’ is a dark and hard-hitting tale of drug abuse. The single itself features soaring guitars and expansive orchestral elements, as well as Dan Owen’s jaw-dropping vocals, and has already gained support from Radio 2. Listen to the original single HERE.

‘Icarus’ follows Dan’s previous singles ‘Made To Love You’ and ‘Hideaway’, all of which feature on his upcoming album. ‘Made To Love You’ has amassed over 10 million streams on Spotify, while his last single ‘Hideaway’ proved a highly praised radio hit. It was featured as ‘Record Of The Week’ at both Radio 1 and Virgin Radio, and also received support from Dermot O’Leary, Zoe Ball and Jo Whiley at Radio 2.

Dan has also just announced a headline show at London’s Jazz Café on May 29th and has been announced to play the main stage at Wilderness festivals this summer.

Before this Dan will be hitting the road with Alice Merton on her nine-date European tour next month, which starts with a show at London’s Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on March 6th. Following this Dan will play a six-date European tour with Joseph J. Jones in May. Full tour dates can be found below:
