Hannah Williams and the Affirmations are the current darlings of the worldwide Soul scene. Having been sampled by Jay Z on the Grammy-nominated song “4:44”, they were catapulted around the globe. This has lead them to work with Tyler The Creator, Guy Chambers and Pete Rock, to name a few. They’ve been personally championed by Huey Morgan and the late, great masters Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley.

Williams turned heads worldwide when the hip-hop superstar sampled her heart-stopping vocals on ‘Late Nights & Heartbreak’ for the title track, ‘4.44’ on his 2017 album. In October 2019 Hannah and her exemplary, Bristol-based band the Affirmations delivered a definitive career statement with the drop-dead soulful new album 50 Foot Woman.

The album captures all of the visceral power of the band’s increasingly legendary live performances. Shades of classic Soul and Psychedelic Funk blend uniquely with modern-day flavours on a record destined to set the soul agenda for 2019 and far beyond. “I’ve never been as proud of anything in my entire career” says Hannah.

Since the release of this critically acclaimed album, Hannah and the Affirmations have been hard at work developing new material. They are delighted to share some of this new material alongside favourites from the previous 2 albums Late Nights And Heartbreak, 50 Foot Woman.
