The ‘222’ EP by Hannah Dorman is a lush debut. It combines rock and commercial pop to create an original identity that perfectly reflects the artist that she aspires to be .’222’ is the perfect introduction to Hannah Dorman’s enticing music realm.

The continuation of the lead single ‘Fire’, ‘222’ prides itself in encouraging self-love and empowerment. 222 is a symbolic number, used in angelic communication because of the strong presence it has throughout the entire process. Hannah continues to emphasize this theme of “manifestation” and celebrating “who you are”, by promoting the theme of empowerment, and self-love.

This EP was co-written with Irish pop singer-songwriter Ivon Roberts and produced by Sam Ray of Friday Night Firefight, a synthpop duo. The trio met in a songwriting camp in Spain in March 2022 and have been creating original music ever since.

We had a chat with the brilliantly creative, up-and-coming artist Hannah Dorman.

Can you elaborate on the meaning behind that ‘222’?

The EP is named after angel number 222, which means you’re on the right path. Angel numbers can present themselves in many different ways, but throughout working on this EP, Ivon (who I co-wrote “222” with) and I have seen ‘222’ everywhere so we thought it would be fitting to have that as the title. On the day of release, I saw ‘222’ on the side of a car on TV, when I’ve been listening to the songs on the EP I look down at the timestamp and I see 2:22, I was on the radio last week and on the side of the host’s car was ‘222, 222’. These are just a few examples but it’s everywhere!

If you had to describe your sound in three words what would they be?

Bad B*tch Energy

What do you want people to take away from listening to your music?

In this EP the main message has been self-empowerment and self-worth, learning to love yourself, and really prioritizing YOU. I want people to feel good about themselves and think “you know what, I can achieve anything!”.

What was the first album you purchased?

I think it was either S Club 7 or McFly!

Which artists are you listening to right now?

To be honest with you whatever’s on the charts I’m a sucker for! For example, Harry Styles and I’m LOVING the new Calvin Harris track ft. Justin Timberlake, Halsey and Pharrell Williams.

How would you describe your personal style?

Comfortably fashionable? I like to keep up with the latest ‘fashion trends’ and styles but I also like to feel comfortable in what I’m wearing. I’m not after wearing an uncomfortable outfit for the sake of a picture or to look a certain way, I’d rather find something that is in style but still feels comfy!

What can we expect from you in the next twelve months?

Music music music! With a few added surprises in there if all goes to plan! My main focus at the moment is writing and releasing music so as they say – this is just the beginning!
