Hannah Kathleen Releases New Single ‘Missing U’

No Comments

Hannah Kathleen is a trailblazing 23 year old singer/songwriter and entrepreneur. The Dublin beauty is an artist whose very essence is based on a dynamic spark of creativity that permeates every area of her life, but seldom does it shine brighter than when she’s on stage or in studio doing what she loves – music. 

Citing musical influences such as Whitney, Mariah, Ariana and Christina, Hannah’s voice is a fusion of vocal runs, that rise and soar with perfect, lush harmony-laden Pop sensibilities akin to the 90’s and indeed 00’s Pop divas. In new single ‘Missing U’, Hannah channels the subtle tones of Janet Jackson and Ariana Grande.

“Missing U’ is out now across all streaming platforms. This is a reflective romantic track, recorded remotely in Dublin due to the global situation, it’s a collaboration between Hannah Kathleen and German producer, SVRN.

The lyrics are particularly relevant to couples who have been missing/are missing each other due to COVID-19 lockdowns. It reminisces on better times with the hopes for a better future. It also features a cute reference to one of the most famous (and my fav) romantic movies of recent years, “The Notebook”!

Whether in Ireland or around the world (she is currently based in Norway), music is a universal language and Hannah Kathleen speaks it fluently. Music has always been her first love. As a performer she’s playful yet fierce, and her confidence, coupled with her authenticity, is what truly connects her with her audiences.

She’s young but already making waves, having performed not once, but twice, on Sir Richard Branson’s private island, Necker Island, in December 2018 & 2019, to guests including tennis legends Rod Laver & Martina Navratilova, as well as Sir Richard Branson himself. She has over 100,000 followers on Instagram, her word of mouth endorsement’s within the entertainment industry echoing across her social media.

Following her placement as a Miss Universe Ireland finalist in 2017 & 2018, she was invited back as a featured performer at the Miss Universe Ireland Final 2019 Show, as well as the famous ‘Blondwiesn’ Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich. She has been requested at a number of high profile events in 2020, in locations including Las Vegas but due to Covid, this had to be postponed. Now, Hannah resides next to a fjord in Norway where she has been writing and recording new music while the music industry eagerly awaits its reopening.

Lewis’s stunning, crystalline vocal and deft, chamber folk arrangements call to mind modern stars such as Ane Brun and Lisa Hannigan as well as classic artists such as Joni Mitchell.

Sweet Dreams and The Fox were both produced by Lewis, recorded at Soup Studios, London and mastered by Pete Maher. Featuring guest musicians Matt Dibble (Clarinet), Hannah Thomas (Cello) and Jonny Huddersfield Helm (Drums).
