‘My job is to bring truth into the room’: Hannah V on the role of the producer

Revered producer and musician Hannah V recently sat down for an in-depth interview with Audio Media International, supported by Tileyard, to discuss her illustrious career to date and why music production is all about human connections…

It was eight years ago that Hannah V swapped the stage for the studio. Before reinventing herself as one of the most acclaimed producers in the business, her natural home was on the stag as a touring musician for an assortment of international pop luminaries. Her skills as a session keyboardist saw her services deployed for, to name but a few, the likes of Jessie J, Rihanna, Anastacia, Girls Aloud, Nicola Roberts, Sugababes, Jason Derulo, Jay Sean, Taio Cruz, Daniel Merriweather, ABC, Will Young, David Jordan, Bugz In The Attic and Charlotte Church. 

However, whenever her intensive schedule permitted it, she would spend hours composing and producing her own music. Eventually, the pull of the studio and the fraying effects of the best part of a decade travelling the world in the employ of others, she decided to pursue music production as a full-time pursuit. 

Since then, she has collaborated and producer works for a vast array of artists, including an ongoing partnership with JP Cooper, as well the likes of Stormzy, Mumu Fresh, Stylo G, Misha B, Shystie and others. 

Here, she sits down for a career-spanning conversation with Audio Media International editor Daniel Gumble, in which she discusses the lessons she has learned from life on the road and the vital importance of human connection in music production…
