Through the Woods CD
Full Product Description
Releasing her 3rd album since she began her solo recording career in 2007, Philippa Hanna presents 11 faith filled songs with a distinctly gentle folk/country sound blended with brighter - and more bluesy, guitar work to create a refreshing collection of good-hearted yet moving songs.
The album’s headline single, Lighthouse, was aired live on BBC 2 earlier this year with its patient urging to keep your eyes on God: "You send the stars out when darkness falls around me / I feel not good enough but you light me up."
Other songs lift even the clouds off most dreary days with up-tempo pop settings of deeply thoughtful lyrics: "The world is a better place when you don't hide / The world is a better place cause you're alive." (Daffodil Song) – further lifted by a trumpet and choir guaranteed to bring in the blue skies.
Songs on Through the Woods have a story to tell: from the fairytale romance Hollywood to redemption and ‘moving on’ narrative of Cherry Coloured Coat . "Fire" kindles a steady blaze in the heart with bluesy guitar arrangements rising up to celebrate: "There's nothing I can do, I can't hide myself. This fire, it burns for you."
Throughout the album, Hanna’s hopes and belief in renewal through “a little love" reflect her own experiences, all summed up in bright but never sugary melodies and rhythms with lyrics that dance into your heart and mind.
Maybe "New For Old" best shows off the lustre of this multi faceted album shining with country, Celtic and blues - as well some classy folk/country arrangements: "the dust is blown from off the surface… there's a diamond to discover when you hold it to the light."
Philippa Hanna is one of the UK's brightest talents. Her songs and stories are captivating audiences around the globe.
Taking in over 100 performances each year since the launch of Watching Me in 2007 it’s clear that Philippa is following in the footsteps of the of her bassist brother Stuart Zender (Jamiroquai, Mark Ronson) by making her mark in the music industry. Not only devoting her time to music, Philippa visited Haiti in 2009 with international children's charity Compassion and has helped to recruit hundreds of sponsors for the charity's work at her concerts since the launch of her 2nd album Taste.
Philippa spent much of her time at the end of 2010 in Hong Kong working as a part of the development team Asia's premier girlband Blush. The televised project, put together by producer Eliot Kennedy (Bryan Adams, Spice Girls) and Jon Niermann (former President of Walt Disney Asia-Pacific) has generated huge global interest.
After kicking off 2011 with an appearance on the BBC's Songs of Praise and the release of the live studio recording 'Out of the Blue' EP Philippa hit the ground running appearing at events and festivals through out the year. Not content with appearing at large UK events such as Green Belt & Big Church Day out she has also taken her music out events and festivals in Europe.
In 2012 she supported international superstar Lionel Richie for each of his 11 UK tour dates, & finished the year with a fully booked Christmas Tour. A new book and album are due for release in 2013.
When Philippa's isn't on the road she is usually in the Steel Works studio writing with Eliot Kennedy & his accomplished team. Recently she has worked with Mel C, Janet Devlin & Craig Colton to name but a few. Not content with all that, this year has also seen the launch of her new charity project 'The Raggedy Doll Foundation'.
