On the road with Anastacia
Posted: 12 Apr 2016
Singer/songwriter Philippa Hanna is supporting Anastacia on her UK tour and you can catch her at Sage Gateshead on 10 May.
The new tour comes hot on the heels of her tour opening for Leona Lewis – and now the Barnsley-born performer has her sights set on breaking the US market as she moves out to Nashville this summer.
Meanwhile Philippa’s fifth studio album 'Speed Of Light' has been released. It blends the pop and electronic of Taylor Swift, swerving away from the previous country-style releases. After lead single Even Now topped the iTunes Christian & Gospel chart, expectation has built up with second single Arrow getting well-earned spins by Richard Madeley on BBC Radio 2 and on Mark Forrest’s show. The project was recording in Nashville with producer Kyle Lee and features a duet with Kevin Max the multi-million selling act DC Talk.
The album was funded in part by Philippa’s fans through Rocket Fuel, a crowdfunding site she helped to launch in 2014, whilst her trips to Nashville have been aided by support from BPI and UK Trade & Investment through the Music For Export Growth Scheme.
Philippa will be performing live and speaking to Clare Balding on 24 April on BBC Radio 2.
