“She’s a funkbomb waiting to go off!” – Blues & Soul Magazine
The daughter of a musically gifted minister, Hannah Williams (aka Deep Soul’s Funkiest New Diva) was immersed in soulful music from the day she was born. Her first single, an independently released 45, reached out into the soul scene and drew praise from Sharon Jones & The Dap KIngs, Charles Bradley, Craig Charles on his BBC radio show and various labels and promoters. Hannah and the band were signed by the Italian Record Kicks label just weeks after the release of the vinyl single. Whilst recording the anticipated debut LP, due to finally drop in summer 2012, the outfit crept onto a couple of festival bills, headlining a stage at Larmer Tree and flying to Italy to play the penultimate set on the main stage at Jazz Re:Found.
The London-based band have headlined the legendary 100 club and supported Sharon Jones & Charles Bradley among others. Their eagerly awaited UK tour kicks off in May promoting their debut album ahead of the festival season, where they are sure to be the biggest surprise act on any European stage.
”They’re one tight outfit, but the one thing that really jumps out is the quality of Hannah’s vocals. Superb.” – Craig Charles BBC Funk & Soul Show
Doors open: 7.30pm.
Tickets: £8 advance or £10 on the door (students £6) available online at http://www.theschoolcreativecentre.co.uk or 01797 229797 or email@example.com or from Grammar School Records, High Street, Rye
