" The Blue Haste, are a Bath based, fledgling project.. founded by creative force and engine room: Hannah Collins - former member of The Heavy (Ninja Tune), session vocalist for the D&B sensation TC , amongst others... and solo artist in her own right following the release of her self penned and produced debut album 'Different Light' in 2011 - and Stephen Horton - who has abandoned touring the dingy basements of the trad and blues scenes in London and the west country to help bring The Blue Haste to life."


Latest recruit is the lovely Ellie Maher and we are looking for nice, vibey enthusiastic folk to come and bring some more magic, have fun, make great music, record albums and eps, rehearse, play live and work towards a serious future together as a band...

We have about 5/6 songs at a good standard now.. we're working on more with a view to releasing an album this year.. ..
At the moment we kinda fit into the" bluesy/acoustic/country/soul/folk bracket...".. and we look forward to what someone else can potentially bring to our sound too and are very open to co-writing and sharing ideas and sounds. :)

If you like the sound of us, and some if not all of our influences ;) ...and think you'd like to be a part, get in touch, we'd love to hear from you...

Love and thanks,

The Blue Haste
