Classics graduate and self taught guitarist, Hannah Ashcroft writes a distinctive brand of indie/folk.
With influences ranging from John Martyn to St Vincent, she combines her unique playing style with lyrics inspired by the likes of Roman poet Ovid, Sylvia Plath and Murakami.
Still in the early stages of her career, her music has attracted the attention of Tom Robinson on BBC6 Music, BBC Introducing Manchester and Amazing Radio, while earning praise from the likes Folk Radio UK, Ear to The Ground and Secret Meeting. Downfall - an ambient collaboration written with experimental artist Marlene Ribeiro (Gnod/Negra Branca) was also debuted by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC6 Music Recommends.
Last year, she was selected to collaborate with Mercury nominated artist Beth Orton, as part of music charity Brighter Sound’s gender equality initiative Both Sides Now. She was then invited to join them as part of a panel for Unheard Voices, a gender equality conference at EU Parliament in Brussels.
From desert roadhouses to boutique festivals, she has toured and busked her way across the UK, Europe and Australia, along with performances at By The Meadow (AU), Manchester International Festival and Dot to Dot Festival. As a songwriter and session musician she has performed at iconic venues such as Band on the Wall, Manchester Cathedral, The Roundhouse in London and La Cigale in Paris.
