Hannah Aldridge is steeped in the music of Nashville and Muscle Shoals, the two cities where she was raised, as her father Walt Aldridge - a Muscle Shoals legend and much-honoured Nashville songwriter, musician and producer - plied his craft. Her music has an edge and her forthcoming trip to the UK is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to embrace the gritty tales featured on her acclaimed ‘Razor Wire’ album which she has tagged ‘Dark Americana’.
Razor Wire, produced in Nashville by Chris Mara features 9 originals plus Hannah's haunting re-imagining of fellow Shoals' native Jason Isbell's ‘Try’. Joining Hannah on the album are Andrew Sovine - electric & acoustic guitars/lap steel, Brad Pemberton - drums & percussion, Lane Baker - bass/background vocals, Andrew Higley - keyboards/saw, James LeBlanc - background vocals & Dylan LeBlanc - background vocals/lead guitar on ‘Lie Like You Love Me’, while on ‘Try’", Hannah is backed by Isbell's band - The 400 Unit - Derry DeBorja (Keyboards), Jimbo Hart (bass), Chad Gamble (drums) and Sadler Vaden (guitar).
Hannah will return to the UK for a string of dates in July and will include a show at the Maverick festival.
