Check out the artist's Songkick and Facebook page for more info.

Jay-Z and his legendary producer NO I.D. have used Hannah's voice and The Affirmations' sound to build the song "4:44" which, according to the rapper, “it's the crux of the album... It's such a powerful song, and I just believe one of the best songs I've ever written”.This brought the Bristolian band to the spotlight worldwide: not only their song became “the soundtrack to the summer in New York” (Love Mag), our Soul Hurricane has been featured on Billboard US and Brazil, Complex UK and US, Rolling Stone US, NY Times, Les Inrocks FRA, Metro UK to name a few, and it is on rotation on KCRW, KDHX, BBC 1/2/6 and FIP among many others.

Following Amy Winehouse and Adele, Hannah Williams is a British woman who is changing the shape of popular music for the better. Already defined as the “next big thing in the soul scene” by the latest Sharon Jones, Hannah, backed by the outstanding Affirmations, is now back on tour and she is ready to grace stages around the world with her music once again, leaving them in tatters afterwards. It will not take long for anyone who hears “Late Nights and Heartbreak” to be conquered by this unique and heart breaking, dance floor shaking blend of raw and real Soul.
