HANNAH VIVIAN-BYRNE

VOCALS | PIANO

Singer/songwriter Hannah Vivian-Byrne was born South Wales and grew up immersed in music. Early exposure to Eva Cassidy, Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin and Ella Fitzgerald introduced the budding singer to a wide range of singing styles; from folk to jazz and blues. These early influences shaped Hannah's style and stayed with her throughout her studies and early career.

Hannah recently graduated from The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a First Class Honours degree in Jazz vocals and performance. Outside her formal training Hannah has toured extensively throughout the UK and played many prestigious festivals over the last 3 years, including Boardmasters, Cambridge Folk Festival and Glastonbury. To date Hannah has released two EPs of original material on independent label Never Fade Records. Hannah's original material caught the attention of the BBC and in 2015 she was selected to join the BBC Wales Horizons programme. She has since received tremendous support from BBC Wales as well as BBC Radio 2's Dermot O'Leary. In September Hannah embarked on her first UK headline tour, selling out a number of shows. Hannah now lives and works in London and is currently working on her debut album.
