Was amazing to get a play on Radio 1 the other day! Only a clip of "Old Eyes" but still pretty awesome and I have BBC introducing in the West to thank for that one :-)
I had a lovely gig in Lichfield Guildhall as part of their Folk festival last week. A full room and beautiful sound in there. Afterwards I met up with Rob from Folk Radio UK for an interview and some photos. If you haven't yet read it here it is - http://www.folkradio.co.uk/2014/10/an-interview-with-hattie-briggs/ - there's lots in here and quite a few things you didn't know about me before, as well as info about the album, music videos, future plans :-)
Gigs coming up in the next few days are - a headline show in Bristol at Mr Wolfs on Tuesday and then a support slot at the New Brewery Arts Club in Cirencester on the 14th. Both fantastic venues so come along! More details and ticket links on my gigs page :-)
Finally here is a cover I did of "Your Song" by Elton John - I hope you like it!
My next single "Share Your Heart" comes out on November 17th and you can listen to it and see the music video via this exclusive - http://www.folkradio.co.uk/2014/10/video-premiere-hattie-briggs-share-your-heart/ please share it around as much as poss! The artwork and video were made by JEGS Media! The video was filmed at Woodchester Manor, where I will be doing a fundraiser gig next August :-)
I had a great time supporting Sam Brookes at a couple of gigs last week - thanks to all of those who came along and made those evenings so much fun!
Coming up in the next few days/weeks are:
Oxjam takeover, Cheltenham this Saturday, tickets - www.wegottickets.co.uk/oxjamcheltenham - I'm on at 5pm at 21 Club.
The Prince Albert, Rodborough, this Sunday, 8pm, tickets £5 on the door and I'll have support from Ben Maggs.
Then a bit further along the road there's Lichfield Festival on October 26th and one for you diary in December - Maggie's Christmas Carol Concert at Christ Church in Cheltenham on the 18th. Maggie's is a Cancer charity that gives fantastic support all over the country. I went to look around the Maggie's centre in Cheltenham yesterday, and to talk to Jane Fide, centre head, about the concert. It's such a warm and friendly place and a brilliant initiative to support. I can't wait for the concert and really hope that lots of you will come along. Tickets are selling fast and this event is very popular so I suggest you head over to http://www.maggiescentres.org to bag yourself some, it's going to be a fantastic family event.
That's all for now amigos xx
So "Share Your Heart" will be the next single for which my new music video is now finished! The video will be out in the next few days so keep your eyes peeled. I can't wait for you all to see it - it's pretty different from the first video, lots more drama, I think you're gonna like it :-)
Also new is this snazzy logo, designed by Gerry O'Dwyer, which is going to look awesome on poster and merch etc! Speaking of merch, I'm having a bit of a brain storm at the mo and trying to decide what kind of merch to bring on tour with me later this year and next year. Please send me a Facebook Message with any ideas you may have of what would be cool to buy at gigs and online to go with the various CDs I've already got available, I'm making it for you after all :-)
Loads coming up this week in the way of gigs! I'll be supporting Sam Brookes at The Auriol in London on Thursday night, and then again at a secret Cheltenham underground gig on the 11th. On the 12th it's back up to London for a live interview and session on Croyden Radio and then on to an afternoon gig at De Hems Dutch Cafe in Soho. Loads to look forward to!

Back very soon ;-) H x
