Hannah Scott draws much of the inspiration for her music from her affinity with Italy. A year living and working on an olive press in rural Tuscany in her late teens provided the backdrop to her early work and she has found her musical home with creative partner Stefano Della Casa who she met in London but may well have met years earlier when passing through the train station he was working in!
Hannah’s music has been played regularly on the BBC with releases supported by Dermot O’Leary and Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 and Tom Robinson on 6 Music. She’s also been featured by MOJO and The Guardian. Her arresting live performances have earned her support slots for artists including Madeleine Peyroux, Seth Lakeman and 10cc and she has twice travelled to New York festival “Mondo NYC”, receiving PRS Foundation funding and running a successful crowdfunding campaign to fund the trips.
Hannah and Stefano are currently working between London and Italy and their contemporary folk songs combine organic, live elements with electronica. Lyrically, they are honest songs drawn from their own experiences about the human condition and human connection in an increasingly hectic world.
