Hatchie (Harriette Pilbeam) Biography
Birthday: 1993 (Taurus)
Born In: Brisbane, Queensland
Harriette Pilbeam is an Australian singer-songwriter who is more popular by her stage name Hatchie. A native of Queensland, she developed a love for music quite early in her life. Singing since she was a child, Pilbeam started taking guitar lessons after she turned thirteen. She also learned how to play bass, piano, and clarinet but soon began to prefer bass over others. During this period, she joined her first band. After completing her education, she initially wanted to pursue the career of a band manager. On realising she didn’t understand much about music management despite being in a band herself, she postponed it for a few years. The first significant group she was part of was Go Violets, which was formed in 2011. Hatchie later joined a band named Babaganouj which she is still part of. In May 2017, she released her first solo single ‘Try’ to positive reviews. Encouraged, she went on to release several others. Hatchie cites Cocteau Twins, The Sundays, Wolf Alice, and Kylie Minogue as some of the musicians who have inspired her over the years.
