Happy Bank Holiday Everybody,
I hope you are thoroughly enjoying your well deserved time off. I have just the thing to help you relax on this fine Saturday evening…
…may I present to you the first song available from my second album! “The Lake” is out online to download and stream at your leisure. I’m really proud of the this track, how immersive it is and the strength of the image it conjures in my mind of Lake Garda in Italy. I really hope that it transports you somewhere or makes you feel something you weren’t expecting to feel.
Here it is on iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-lake/id1109003523?i=1109004661 and Spotify - https://play.spotify.com/album/3Eqgvj2D8YDT6iWwcieMh2.
The full album is now available to preorder as well - not long to go til it’s out!
I have also added “The Lake” to my recent Spotify playlist, full of wonderful singer-songwriters you may not have previously heard of - https://open.spotify.com/user/hattiebriggs/playlist/0rZBKPIKaICzN6yxM1OjKV. Some fantastic discoveries to be made here!
Even more excitement for those who can’t wait for the album - the taster 4 track EP, “Here’s to Hoping”, is now available to buy on CD via my website as well as at gigs for just £5 - https://www.musicglue.com/hattie-briggs/shop/.
Thanks very much to everybody who came and packed out the Green Note in Camden on Thursday night. It was a joy to play there again as the headline act this time and as a trio. It was a squeeze to get Hen, Jas and I on the stage, but I was assured that 7 people had squished onto it at a previous gig so maybe we’ll try that next time (or maybe not).
My brunch gig in Nailsworth tomorrow is sold out, but there are plenty of others on the way if you were too late for that one. Here are the next few for you:
5th May, 7:30 - Kitchen Garden Cafe, Birmingham - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/344325
I’ll be playing as a trio at this with 2 cellists and support comes from Esther Turner.

I’m sharing this gig with Harpers Ferry who are in the middle of their “Free Reign Tour”. I’ll be playing as a trio with cello and guitar.
14th May - The Drawing Room, Chesham - http://the-drawingroom.co.uk/gigsparties-temp/
Henry and I return to one of my favourite venues for round 3. Fingers crossed it’s good weather and we’ll be performing for you outside.

Did you know I’m on Instagram? I can assure you that your daily lives won’t be complete without seeing my interesting, amusing and possibly informative updates - https://www.instagram.com/hattiepbriggs/.
My next offering is a live video taken at Sofar Sounds Oxford a few months ago. This song, “You Only Live Once”, will be on my new album as a fully produced track but here is a chilled out solo/acoustic version to give you a taster - https://youtu.be/zp7RX4Emwmw - enjoy!
Lastly, I’d like to make a shout out to all my American and Canadian fans. I’m hoping to do a Living Room Tour across the pond from end of September to early November this year. Areas we’re currently looking into are Toronto, California, Massachusetts and Florida, but we’re open to any suggestions. Please get in contact if you might be interested in hosting a Living Room gig or have friends/family who would. Let’s make this thing happen!
