Asthmatic Harp is the musical moniker of Glasgow based songwriter and composer Hannah Fredsgaard-Jones. Through the ethereal autoharp, gentle guitar strumming, hushed and tumbling melodies, Asthmatic Harp is synonymous with a sound that manages to be comforting, folksy, eerie and personal, all at once.
Born in Denmark before moving to the UK, Hannah began performing on the London music scene with her debut EP Lost Astronaut in 2015. The music was given 5/6 stars in the acclaimed Danish Music Magazine Gaffa and published in both print and online with Gaffa calling it “Pop Music that takes it a step further”.
In 2018 Hannah was handpicked to the prestigious Roundhouse Resident Artist Program. She completed the residency with impressive achievements such as playing the 1,700 seated capacity Roundhouse main stage as the opening act for Sam Palladio, and developing exciting collaborations with fellow Roundhouse artists Sophie Kilburn and Kid Jupiter.
Asthmatic Harp is a 'Do It Differently' Awardee and has recently released the EP 'Things We Learned To Live With'.
