The artist the Evening Standard calls "an activist", Hannah White is politically-inclined, an active humanitarian and an advocate for independent musicians and writers all over the UK; But most of all she is the "arresting and wholly believable" (Acoustic Magazine) singer-songwriter that captures the hearts of her audiences nationwide gaining her acclaim from BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, RnR Magazine, Maverick Magazine, Blues Matters and many more.

As honest as they come, Hannah White is a story-teller in the old-fashioned sense, earning her a reputation as "an artist who can deliver social conscience in the folk troubadour style of a Judy Collins or Joan Baez" (Country Music Magazine), however Hannah takes her stories across genres, transporting her fans through a journey that meanders seamlessly from catchy pop, to gritty blues, to heart-breaking country.

Having shared stages with Grammy award-winning artists, won over support from TV presenter & radio broadcaster, Gaby Roslin, headlined a SOLD OUT show at London's iconic Union Chapel, performed at major festivals and picked up press plaudits along the way, Hannah White is coming in to her own.
