Parliamentary Jazz Award winner 2023 and official Henri Selmer Artist, Hannah Horton, is a visionary jazz saxophonist, composer and bandleader. Known as the ‘Melodic Maverick’ Hannah’s music is rooted in jazz, folk and funk and her established individual and sophisticated sound is edging through boundaries and creating waves worldwide.

Alumni of the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Trinity Laban, and member of award winning Women In Jazz Media, Hannah works the jazz world in her own authentic way. Her most recent album ‘Inside Out’ has received critical acclaim worldwide and she continues to wow audiences with her creative, compelling, emotive and alluring playing, alongside her warm and charming personality on stage.

She has showcased her skills alongside a plethora of great artists such as Amy Winehouse, Ian Shaw (who is also guest vocalist on Inside Out), John Etheridge, Georgia Mancio and has performed at all of the UK’s most prominent jazz venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, The Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican, 606 Jazz Club and selling out at London Jazz Festival  shows.

Today Hannah provides inspiration of her own by running ‘J Steps– ’ a new band initiative designed to nurture the talent of musicians who identify as female or non-binary with it’s main aim being to balance a historic lack of representation of women in jazz.

Hannah’s Quartet present original compositions from her highly acclaimed albums including top hits ‘Horn Dance’, ‘Keep Walking’ and ‘Feed The Birds’, new unreleased tracks and iconic songs she holds close to her heart.
