Alana Henderson is a cellist and singer-songwriter from Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland. Brought up playing in the traditional folk clubs of her rural home county, she embarked on a musical career at an early age. Self-releasing her debut EP ‘Wax and Wane’ in 2014, she subsequently added heavyweight pop credentials to her CV when she was asked to join Hozier’s band on cello and vocal duties.
Throughout 2017 she has returned to working on solo material as a 'Hatch' artist in residence at 'The Metropolitan Arts Centre' in Belfast. She recently released single 'Let This Remain', which found her wielding a monochrome and muscular musical aesthetic and approached writer and director, Aislinn Clarke, to direct and conceive a steely and haunting music video for the track.


The pair established great synergy through the collaboration and conceived to work together further. They are honoured to be supported by 'Help Musicians’ to develop a diagetic feature film with music and songwriting at its core, in 2018.
