Miss 600

Catch ths jazz pop duo on a couple of dates this month:

Castle Hotel, Manchester
with support from Kristyna Myles and Emma Wells

Surya, London
with support from Mojo Jojo and Xsara

When ex-Climax Blues Band member and producer Chris Bucknall received a call asking him to check out a young duo at Ryan’s Bar in Derby he was more than intrigued.

A trip to the venue in Derby during an open mic night (where Morrison himself was discovered) led to a meeting with Hannah Garner and David Amar with whom Bucknall was most impressed.

David Amar is a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing since he was a small child and beauty Hannah Garner had just formed a You Tube channel onto which she loaded tracks of herself singing acappella renditions of various covers into a web cam. So well received were these little amateur videos that not only had hundreds of thousands of fans viewed them but four thousand actually subscribed to the channel. And Hannah was only 17 years old at the time.

Bucknall, who is responsible for discovering and producing Sony / BMG’s Sam Beeton, signed them first to the Cubit Recordings label and then took them into his Nottingham-based “Nursery” studios and began recording an album for the talented duo together with co producer Robert de Fresnes and Miss 600 was born. Released in the summer 2011, the album entitled “Buying Time” showcases their talent around simple catchy pop tunes with more than a jazz twist. Buying Time also includes collaborations with Maxi Priest, Sam Beeton and Sonna Rele and is available to purchase from any good download store.

Miss 600 enjoyed massive exposure towards the end of 2011, with their debut single “Twist” making the BBC Radio2 A-list and remaining there for an incredible seven weeks. Their next single, “Missing You” also made playlists across the UK and live performances on “Dancing With the Stars” in Poland in front of millions, and Sir Terry Wogan’s BBC Radio2 show in the UK have further enhanced their growing reputation. Miss 600 made the BBC Radio2 playlist again with their third single, “Typically Me” and will be performing extensively around the country in 2012.
