Hannah Rose Platt is supporting Chuck Ragan at Papillon this Saturday night (3 February).

A fascinating artist who made an album of poetic ghost stories last year called Deathbed Confessions – think shades of Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Kate Bush.

Released in the Spring of 2023 and produced by Ed Harcourt, Deathbed Confessions comprises a collection of ghoulish ghost stories, melodious murder ballads, and humorous hammer-horrors.

Inspired by classic horror such as Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone , the BBC’s Inside No 9, and the balladeer categories of Samuel Peyps – Platt distilled them all into this scintillatingly strange album, featuring the singles The Mermaid & The SailorDead Man on the G Train, and Feeding Time For Monsters.

Cementing her class as a born storyteller, Hannah’s debut was praised by literature giant, Neil Gaiman, who called the record ‘marvellous… Beautiful and moving.’

Touring across Scandinavia with Frank Turner last Autumn, Hannah also released a chilling new EP called Hynagogia to coincide with the shows.

Inspired by haunting Nordic folklore, the EP comprised four fully fleshed-out songs produced by Ed Harcourt, alongside four spoken-word interludes narrated by British acting talent and BAFTA nominee, David Morrissey (Sherwood / The Long Shadow).
