Biography

Miss 600 are an English acoustic duo from Derby composed of Hannah Garner (vocals) and David Amar (drums, lead guitar, bass guitar).

Initially Hannah and David spent time gigging around the local Derby area, while at the same time Hannah had also started her own YouTube 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. Within a few months the pair had been spotted playing at an open mic night at Ryans Bar in Derby by local Nottingham producers Christopher Bucknall and Robert de Fresnes. Chris and Robert were impressed enough to sign the duo to their Cubit Recordings label during the Autumn of 2010 and began working with them to help develop their sound and image and so Miss 600 was born.

By the Spring of 2011 Miss 600’s debut album entitled ‘Buying Time’ had been recorded and featured classy, but simple pop songs with more than a jazz twist. The album included several interesting collaborations including the title track ‘Buying Time’ which had been written by Nottingham singer songwriter Sam Beeton. Duets with Reggae star Maxi Priest and former RCA Records artist Sonna Rele worked well as did a track called ‘Is This Love’ which featured a sample from the soundtrack to the 1977 film ‘Il Gatto’ by legendary film composer Ennio Morricone.

    Brilliant electro-schwing duo with jazz and blues themes. Great guitar, keyboards and some fab wood-wind and Ben on Brass. Altogether? Splendid
