Hannah Peel

Hannah Peel is a Northern Irish artist, composer, producer and broadcaster. Often inspired by the connections between science and music, her solo record career includes the shortlisted 2021 Mercury Music Prize electronic album, Fir Wave; 2016’s Awake But Always Dreaming, which became an ode to her grandmother’s mind as she lived with dementia; and the space-themed Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia, scored for synthesisers and a 30 piece colliery brass band. In 2023 Hannah Peel won the Ivor Novello Best TV Soundtrack award for her score to Sky’s Midwich Cuckoos.

Following her Emmy-nominated Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, in 2022 Hannah released a new, critically acclaimed album The Unfolding with Paraorchestra – the world’s only disabled and non-disabled integrated orchestra which went straight to No.1 in the UK Classical Chart. She went on to play headline shows with the orchestra at the Bluedot festival and the Barbican. Last year she recorded further high profile film and TV scores including Scoop for Netflix with co-composer Anne Nikitin and was Artist in Residence at Kings Place, London where Hannah debuted a new project with Chinese virtuoso percussionist Beibei Wang. They are currently recording a new album together.

Hannah is also a regular presenter on the BBC Radio 3 show, Night Tracks.
