Returning with her first single in over a year, Manchester-based guitarist, singer and songwriter Hannah Ashcroft shares the dainty “Shadow”. A sedated track that offers true catharsis whilst listening, it’s an ethereal offering from an artist who hones in her craft with such expertise. Gliding her vocals across the foundations, “Shadow” is an expansive yet intimate single.
“Shadow was written during an all female songwriting residency I did with Beth Orton. This was the first opportunity I’d had to collaborate with a group of talented and inspiring women and it was incredibly liberating. The first thing we did was to sit down and talk about our experiences in the industry and I think that heavily influenced the track. It wasn’t something I’d intended to write specifically about but by the end of the week, it had just kind of fallen out onto the page.”
