Hannah Ashcroft is set to release her new single, Landfire, on 22 November. The release is the first from a body of new material, marking a shift from her acoustic roots and a phase of experimentation.
Hannah Ashcroft is an inimitable indie, alt-folk musician hailing from Manchester. With vivid imagery and arresting vocals she explores themes of humanity, mythology and superstition. Striking guitar tones and a unique fingerpicking style reflect a range of diverse influences from John Martyn to Radiohead.
After touring and busking her way across the UK, Europe and Australia, she released her Melbourne-made EP The Quiet Kind in 2016, earning support from Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music and receiving praise from Folk Radio UK.
Fast gaining attention, she has been featured by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC 6 Music Recommends and this year, was selected to work with Mercury-nominated artist Beth Orton as part of Brighter Sound’s Both Sides Now initiative.
She has since made debut appearances at Walton Folk Festival, Manchester International Festival and Dot to Dot Festival, and is currently working on her debut album.
