Hannah & The Heartbreak are a London and Bristol based band originally formed by the collaboration of Hannah Bristow, lead singer and songwriter, with a collection of musician friends based around her ‘living in’ warehouse in the Manor House area of north London.
Early demos of songs such as ‘The Gate’, ‘Unstuck’ and ‘Role Play’ were sent to BBC Introducing where they received airplay from Gary Crowley on BBC 6 Music, London. ’The Gate’ also got airplay on The Demo Show with Amazing Radio where record plugger Dylan White was on the review panel. He was so blown away by ’The Gate’ that he tracked Hannah down and offered to manage her.
Hannah & The Heartbreak now have their debut album entitled Open Heart Surgery, a name which came to Hannah in a late night recording session. With their recent airplay on Radio 2, BBC 6 Music with Tom Robinson and also playing a live set on BBC Radio Bristol, Hannah & The Heartbreak define folk soul at its finest.
