Hannah Peel first came to recognition with her mesmerising, hand-punched, music box 80’s (Cocteau Twins, Soft Cell, New Order) covers EP Rebox, in 2010. Having released her critically lauded solo debut album The Broken Wave a year later, Hannah then formed The Magnetic North, a highly acclaimed collaborative project with Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad and The Queen, Gorillaz) and Erland Cooper (Erland & The Carnival). The band's Orkney: Symphony Of The Magnetic North album was a big success in France where the Le Monde newspaper named it as their Number 2 Record Of The Year. Her solo career has continued with the increasingly electronic three track Nailhouse in 2013 and the stunning analogue beauty of Fabricstate EP a year later. Hannah is currently putting the finishing touches to her new solo album Awake But Always Dreaming and a second Rebox EP on the music box which includes an exquisite version of Palace by fellow Domino Publishing artists, Wild Beasts. In May 2015 she is setting off an UK tour with East India Youth after scoring and playing strings on his recent Culture Of Volume album. 


In addition to her increasingly high profile career as a solo artist and producer, the Northern Irish born singer has also composed for TV, Film, Theatre and Dance, winning a 2013 RTS award for the theme to the Channel 4 show Dates, as well as two British arrow awards for her Marie Curie Daffodil advertisement. Hannah Peel's music has featured on hit TV shows (American Horror StoryBonesReignRinger and the 2012 movie, Anna Karenina) and advertisements for DiorCharlotte Tilbury and ITV
