Busking around the country has been always been one of the primary ways for musicians to market their solos and gain popularity with the masses. The London Busking Company has always had a prestigious name around the people of London and this time, they're bringing out singer/song writer, Hattie Briggs, live, at the Merchant Square as part of the Summer Of Fun programme.
Hattie Briggs has been a part of the local and international scene since a while now. A 25 year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, originally from Chichester but currently based in London. Named Fender Undiscovered Artist of the Year 2017, she won the prize of supporting Lucy Rose at the prestigious O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire. Her music brings together pop, folk and electronic influences, which she delivers with honesty and intent.
Since making the decision to drop out of a degree in her second year at Oxford University, she has released several EPs, two critically acclaimed albums, had airplay on BBC Radios 1, 2, and 6 Music, and embarked on tours around the UK, the Netherlands and the U.S.. Festival appearances include "The Great Escape" Brighton, "Secret Garden Party" and a showcase in the Club Tent at Cambridge Folk Festival.
During her travels she has supported some well known bands and artists, including chart topping duo, Ward Thomas, at the O2 London’s Brooklyn Bowl, Lauren Aquilina, Stornoway, John Smith and Seth Lakeman. Influenced by Joni Mitchell, Foy Vance and Jeff Buckley, Hattie writes and sings straight from the heart.
