September 2021 UPDATE...
We've been bunkered-down in the studio since 2019 in an attempt to get our music heard by more folk across the globe. It seems to be working!
Our recent collaboration with Swedish duo Kaiak has received over 80k Spotify plays in its first 5 weeks of release - Hannah's vocals sitting-pretty on a cover of the George Michael/Aretha Franklin smash 'I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)'.
Our 22nd cover (released Friday 24 September 2021) is an understated acoustic version of the Steve Winwood classic 'Higher Love', more recently covered by Kygo & Whitney Houston.
We've now achieved in excess of 7.5 million global streams of our music across Spotify alone, including over 1 million streams of our cover of Randy Newman's 'Feels Like Home' and 855k streams of our original song 'You Worked It Out'. Spotify have reported to us that our four Christmas acoustic covers achieved well over 300k streams during December 2020...whilst monthly listeners rocketed to over 200k at that time.
In the news...over the past year, we saw our acoustic cover of Take That's Back For Good be sync'd to the end-credits of an episode of Hollyoaks (Channel 4) and Loose Women's Stacey Solomon use our cover of Randy Newman's classic Feels Like Home on numerous Instagram posts about her family at home - thank you Stacey! We have also recently featured in Spotify's 'Viral Top 50' in both France and the Netherlands.
Many more recordings are in preparation for release across 2021 and Hannah reports: "It's so nice to be bringing a fresh Hannah's Yard spin to the work of some of the great songwriters and recording artists!"
