RISING STARS: One To Look Out For In 2020 – Hannah Jane Lewis

Hannah Jane Lewis drinks “Lemonade”!

Surrey-born songstress Hannah Jane Lewis, has just announced the release of her new single “Lemonade”. Led by Hannah’s sugar-sweet yet soaring vocals, the electro/pop track is an honest insight into the exciting yet daunting phase of a brand new relationship. Co-written by Joel Gunnarsson and Gil Lewis in the height of Summer, Hannah says of the single “It’s about finding someone you have loads of electricity with, and the feeling after you finally act upon it. When I wrote Lemonade it felt like something clicked and a new door opened to lots of songs that I can’t wait to release”.

Over the last few years, Hannah has released a slew of catchy tracks which have been streamed over 20 million times including her tastemaker-approved debut “Raincheck” which was Radio One’s Introducing Track of the Week, and recent fan favourite “Not Yours Never Was” from last year’s self-titled EP. The singer-songwriter has previously supported the likes of Rita Ora, Jess Glynne and Shawn Mendes to name a few. The sky’s the limit for Hannah Jane Lewis; she dreams of headlining iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden in NYC and London’s O2 Arena someday.

This year, Hannah is setting her sights on releasing lots of new music, and also getting back on the road and playing live shows so watch this space. The Surrey-born rising star doesn’t remember a time where she didn’t want to be a singer. Hannah grew up taking singing and dancing lessons alongside learning how to play the piano. At 14, she moved to Florida with her family where she resided for 8 years before moving to New York City. After studying at the prestigious NYU Tisch School Of The Arts (alumni include Lady Gaga, Timothée Chalamet, Anne Hathaway), Hannah returned to the UK to work on her own music.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
