Spotlight Interview with Hatty Keane

Hatty Keane just dropped a fresh disco fueled jam that boasts tons of soul and tasteful and sultry R&B style that flows like silk along wide jazzy guitars and a funk backdrop.

"What A Night" is packed to the brim with a lush and lively set of vocals that you can feel from across the room.

This track has this incredibly danceable groove and color to it and is built with heart and a real knack for hitting those sweet spots that make you want more and more.

This release shines with character and presence as Keane rolls out these impactful vocal sections that makes you shake your ass in your seat.

You actually can't not dance to this track. Try it. You'll fail.

This is a get on the dance floor and get down type of single for sure.

You can feel this one in your bones and it really creates this gorgeous and fun atmosphere that becomes quickly infectious to say the least.

This has a refreshing and crips sort of summer vibe to it and it has a great energy and soul to it that grabs you by the hips.

It feels like a cross between current pop and classic late 70's disco had a baby, and this is the track.

It makes you want to get dressed and go out and it feels good to turn up loud.

With the release of such a killer single, we wanted to have a chat with Hatty to find out where this all came from and what may be next for her.

Here's what happened.

RAG: Okay so let's start with "Oh What a Night". This track had a vibrant soul feel to it! Where did this single come from?

I wrote this one after a game of crazy golf in london and was in a pretty epic mood after a few cocktails and winning by some fluke!

Found the backing track online and immediately fell inlove with the funk guitar the whole song was written in half an hour. It was just one of those instantaneous songs that flowed out.

RAG: I'm hearing some great styles on this release. Who are some of your biggest musical influences?

Funk soul disco classics the ones with big voices and huge string accompaniments.

RAG: So how did this all begin for you really? When did you fall in love with making music?

I started going music in 2012 but fell in love with it when I started writing my own material and delving into soul when I created the Nostalgia EP.

RAG: What's next for you as an artist?

Looking forward to releasing the new EP Groove Parlour this year and getting out live with it.

RAG: What inspires you to write a song?

Usually my mood. A song can arise from anything, but my mood will play into what kind of story it will become. The backing track has to take myself and Michael (my manager and also writing partner) on a journey first before anything gets written.

RAG: What are you doing when you're NOT working on music?

Looking for flares that aren't too long for me! Haha it's a full time job.

RAG: Who are you listening to right now?

Phyllis Hyman.

RAG: Are you doing live performances?

Yes in summer I'm at Weyfest and doing some bits in London.

RAG: This single seems like a big undertaking. What kind of advice might you have for other up and coming artists out there?

Just be you and have fun that's the most important thing.

RAG: Before we go, what would you like to say to fans of the music?

Thanks so much for listening and I hope you shake your booty some more to my new stuff.
