Hannah Horton

Saxophonist, composer, educator and podcast host

Headshot of Hannah Horton - a member of the Women in Jazz Media team team


Hannah hosts our ‘In Conversation with…’ podcast series talking to amazing guests from around the world. Hannah also helps out with our Instagram page and performed (and a bit of managing!) at our ‘Sophisticated Giants’ night celebrating the work of our patron Maxine Gordon. We were also thrilled Hannah brought her J Steps group to perform at our ‘Sophisticated Giants’ event and at our EFG London Jazz Festival event.

Hannah Horton is a melodic maverick, visionary jazz saxophonist, composer, bandleader and journalist. Star of UK jazz, her music is rooted in jazz, folk and funk. Her established individual and sophisticated sound is edging through boundaries and creating waves worldwide.

An official Henri Selmer Artist, alumni of the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Trinity Laban, and member of award winning Women In Jazz Media, Hannah works the jazz world in her own authentic way. Her most recent album ‘Inside Out’ has received critical acclaim worldwide and she continues to wow audiences with her creative, compelling, emotive and alluring playing, alongside her warm and charming personality on stage.

Today Hannah provides inspiration of her own by running ‘J Steps’ – a new band initiative designed to nurture the talent of musicians who identify as female or non-binary with it’s main aim being to balance a historic lack of representation of women in jazz.
