Hannah B. Foley
"I’m a big bag of bubblyness if truth be told. I was your typical four year old singing and dancing in front of the TV to the classic tunes of MTV or to Mum and Dad’s vinyl 80’s hits. Since then I’ve been hooked! To say I sing everywhere is an understatement. My writing skills developed much later. At 20 I put pen to paper and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since, getting inspiration from all walks of life and in the most random places."
Hannah B.Foley is a singer/songwriter from Kilkenny. Hannah has recently completed work on 3 new singles to accompany her existing 2 singles, Sleeping Under the Stars & I Miss You for her upcoming EP which she plans to release in the New Year.

Hannah has plans to tour the country and give the folks of Ireland a taste of her sound.
