Philippa Hanna joins Leona Lewis on tour

Posted: 07 Feb 2016

This year looks set to be a memorable one for UK artist Philippa Hanna as the Sheffield-based singer/songwriter opens for Leona Lewis on tour, hitting the Sage Gateshead on 25 February.

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

Legendary voice coach Brett Manning connected Philippa and Leona via Skype in 2015 at the end of her singing lesson.

Fans on the tour will hear a preview of her upcoming single Arrow which is due for release on 11 March 11 whilst sampling other new songs from her upcoming studio album.

The album, which includes the iTunes chart-topping single Even Now, was recorded with producer Kyle Lee in Nashville and will be out on 29 April. Fans can pre-order CDs and merchandise from rocketfuelhq.com

After many months of speculation and being awarded the prestigious Music For Export Growth grant from UK Trade & Investment / BPI, Philippa will be setting sail for Nashville this summer to establish her career Stateside. The move will be indefinite, giving her the chance to build on successes as a writer after achieving cuts for acts including multi-million selling Natalie Grant.

Marti Pellow Supported by Philippa Hanna Sage Gateshead 24 March 2017 There’s nothing mysterious about Marti Pellow despite ‘Mysterious’ being the name of the tour he stopped off with at Sage Gateshead along with his nine-piece band.With a packed audience who had grown up with the former ‘Wet Wet Wet’ front-man, Pellow’s fun-infected fusion rolled along at a steady pace, punctuated by the occasional number slow enough to persuade some of his adoring legions to momentarily sit...
