My name is Hattie Whitehead and I’m a singer and songwriter from London. My music probably fits best into the contemporary/alt folk genre, and some of my favourite artists and biggest musical influences are Nick Drake, John Martyn, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Laura Marling, Scott Matthews…I could keep going but you get the idea!
I have been singing a very long time…I still have a tape of my dad playing guitar whilst I jump on the bed at around three years old, making songs up about fairies and cake. This has to have been my finest hour of songwriting. Despite my inability to re-create songs like ‘Fairy on Your Head’ and ‘Fairy on Your Cake’, I’ve just self-released my first EP, titled ‘Home’ which you can find on Bandcamp, Spotify and iTunes.
Nice to meet you and I hope I can come and play for you in Canada in the future!
