Echoing the sounds of the Nordic coast and urban dance halls, cinematic sonic bass producer/violinist HANNAH blends folk songs and improvised instrumental/vocal music with cutting edge electronic sounds, counting Massive Attack, Phaeleh, Trentemøller, and Ólafur Arnalds as influences in crafting her sound. The resulting sonic palate takes listeners on “a kind of mystical journey” (PopMatters), whose destination is a crossroads between classical and contemporary, organic and man-made, familiar and mysterious.
HANNAH has shared the stage with numerous musical giants (The Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Bassnectar, MOBY, The National, EOTO) and appears on records by Irma Thomas (Simply Grand), Beats Antique, and Random Rab, among others. With the June 2014 release of her debut solo album, BRYM, her ever-evolving sound (previously with Copal and Nyxyss) is now being channeled into a electronic ambient indie pop direction, forging new avenues for violin through her own unique articulation of evocative and cinematic electronic music combined with laptop and voice.
Predominantly inspired by the gorgeously dark, earthy textures of the Nordic landscape and the powerfully rich melancholy of its music, BRYM weaves a soulful and triumphant story of transformation and rebirth conveyed through live instrumentation, electronic production and vocals that guide listeners into new portals of wonder and allure. While the album’s instrumental nature leaves it open to limitless interpretations by the listener, the overarching experience is something “majestic and its layers are deep...every listen will unearth new secrets” (Nothing But Hope and Passion).
Deep in the yoga/music scene, HANNAH performs her original orchestral and intuitive scores at numerous yoga festivals and studios around the world, including US and Canadian Wanderlust Festivals, collaborating with lauded teachers Elena Brower, Seane Corn, Eoin Finn, Shiva Rea, Schuyler Grant, Aarona Pichinson, and many others.
HANNAH’s sound and performances meld and blur genres in relentlessly inventive ways, creating a riveting sonic experience that is undeniable in its sincerity and refreshing in its originality.
