You need to live up to a nickname like ‘deep soul's funkiest new diva’, but that’s not difficult for young Hannah Williams. The British singer has already won over millions of YouTube viewers with her passionate voice. There is mostly disbelief when fans discover that tracks like the unique Led Zeppelin cover Dazed And Confused and her own song Late Nights & Heartbreak (from the 2016 album with the same name) weren’t recorded in the swinging sixties or soulful seventies. She has also acquired a super fan: JAY-Z. He built the title song of his latest album, 4:44, around a sample from Late Nights & Heartbreak. Earlier, Williams impressed with her debut album A Hill Of Feathers and her many performances with her group the Tastemakers. But Williams’ talent has only truly come into its own since she began touring with the The Affirmations, a select company of the best musicians that British soul currently has to offer.
