Boom! From out of nowhere, well...Portland, Oregon via Petaluma CA...comes Hanna Haas. Leaving aside Hanna's obvious talent for a beautiful line and heart-rending melody, you can often tell a person by the company they keep and the whispers you hear from their circle. Therefore when Chris Lynch (fiddle-demon of BHM clients Marty O'Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra) tells us to check someone out, we do. The decision to offer Hanna some assistance here in the UK took approximately 60 seconds of the video for 'The Crow Song' (below).
Naturally radiant and redolent of the classic American Folk tradition, everything about Hanna and her songs oozes effortless quality and while she makes it look easy, that's what the best ones always do. With just the one EP - Unstruck released so far, this is a fledgling career and we're delighted to help her spread those wings.
"Hanna has written music since her early teens, and her soothing guitar and soft vocals powerfully draw the listener in. For Unstruck, Hanna was able to collaborate with good friends who contributed to her songs such as Chris Lynch and Ben Berry (from Marty O'Reilly and the Old Soul Orchestra), Jessie Marks, Erin Chapin (from Rainbow Girls), Alexis Hawk (from MAJK) and her brother and classical guitarist Aaron Haas."
