HATTIE Briggs, the talented and internationally acclaimed Stroud singer and songwriter, has kicked off 2018 with an ambitious music project that is sure to delight her fans.

Over the next 12 months Hattie, who was named Fender Undiscovered Artist of the Year 2017, will be releasing five brand new singles, each accompanied by a video, as part of her 5_4:18 project.

As well as being available in digital form to download and stream online, Hattie will also be providing special limited edition packages for each single, which will be numbered and signed for 100 lucky music lovers.

Each limited edition package will also include a digital download of the track , a DVD of the music video, which will contain exclusive behind the scenes footage and interviews, and many other additional perks that will delight the talented singer’s admirers.

Her followers will be able to pre-order the complete set of five, or order release by release if there are still copies available.

The first single, Early Girl, will be officially released on Feb 23rd.

Early Girl was commissioned by a loving father for his daughter, who was prematurely born some 50 years ago, and fought successfully to survive those terrifying first few hours and days.

Songstress Hattie is hoping that her fans will support her to produce a ‘stunning’ video to complement the track: “I'd like to make a really stunning and emotive music video for this song and am planning something quite ambitious involving dancing and butterflies.

“If you'd like to help me fund this video you can make a separate donation on my website,” she said.

Hattie impressed a Stroud audience this year during a 30 minute set supporting Scottish artist Blue Rose Code on a wintry Burns Night at the Subscription Rooms on January 25.

Lisa Parker, was one of the appreciative crowd who saw the Stroud songbird perform, said: “I had heard about 24-year-old Hattie Briggs a long time before I finally got to see her live in Stroud.

“Although she cites Eva Cassidy as an inspiration, Briggs actually comes across as reminiscent of a young Joni Mitchell.

“It was wonderful to see Hattie support such a strong headliner, but I know it won’t be long until she is recognised as an accomplished artist in her own right. 2018 could well be the year,” Lisa predicted.

Fans can catch Hattie at numerous venues across the UK during 2018, full tour dates and details of her exciting 5_4:18 can be found at hattiebriggs.co.uk
