Our guest this week:
Since her 2007 debut, Philippa has released several studio albums, an EP and a live DVD, and published two autobiographical books. As one of the most sought-after acoustic performers in the UK, she has opened tours for acts including Lionel Richie, Anastacia, Leona Lewis, Wet Wet Wet and Collabro.
Born into a musical family, Philippa knew from an early age that that making music was all she wanted to do. Her music frequently draws upon her experiences of a turbulent youth, and the Christian faith she found in 2004. She aims to offer a positive message for fans: Songs like I Am Amazing and Raggedy Doll have seen Philippa champion self-esteem in young people, and she also works as an advocate for children’s charity Compassion International.
Fans of Philippa can support her music, her mission and her new chapter Stateside through the innovative Rocket Fuel platform, for which she acted as a flagship artist: Pick up music, merchandise, handicrafts and more at rocketfuelhq.com/philippahanna .
