NEWS: Singer-songwriter Philippa Hanna supporting Leona Lewis on UK tour

Philippa Hanna2016 already looks set to be a memorable year for UK artist Philippa Hanna. The Sheffield based singer-songwriter not only has the release of her latest album to look forward to, she has also been invited to open an almost-sold-out tour for Leona Lewis, starting with a show at the Liverpool Empire on Sunday 21st February 2016.

Having already toured with several acts, including Lionel Richie, Wet Wet Wet, Rebecca Ferguson and Collabro, Philippa believes “this could be the best tour yet.”

Fans on the tour will be treated to a preview of her upcoming single ‘Arrow’ which is due for release on Friday 11th March, as well as other tracks off her forthcoming studio album. This album, which was recorded with producer Kyle Lee in Nashville, will be out on the 29th April and will include the iTunes chart-topping single ‘Even Now’.

Following on from both the UK tour and album release, Philippa will be setting sail for Nashville in the summer to establish her career stateside, after having been awarded with the prestigious Music For Export Growth grant from UK Trade & Investment/BPI. The move will give Philippa the chance to build on her success as a writer, having already written for acts such as multi-million selling artist Natalie Grant. And with eager interest from leading labels and publishers in Tennessee, the US market is certainly well within reach for the Barnsley-born singer.
