Hana Pestle / Press

“She definitely won us over. We walked outside of the University Center Satellite with a cup of coffee in hand and the intent to go eat off-campus, heard Pestle's voice and immediately delayed our plans for lunch. We were hoping she would be a local artist, which is unfortunately not the case, but nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed the show.”

“Pestle's lyrics combine with her emotive and ethereal vocal style to evoke soul stirring memories. Her songs, sway from brooding and moody, to inspiring and uplifting. The latter, less in tempo than in introspective freedom. At 20-years-old, Pestle has a wisdom deeper than some of her more mature contemporaries. She brings this insight to her music and lyrical themes. The album's second track, "Red Death Ball" pulls you into an atmospheric web of melody, playing Pestle's piano work against a haunting backdrop of strings, arranged and conducted by David Campbell. Moody lends his guitar and Marty O'Brien (Static-X, We Are The Fallen, Disturbed) fills the holes with solid punches from his bass. The album's third track and single, "Need" is perhaps a perfect soundtrack piece for the "Twilight" movie series. So it's not surprising fans attempted to get the series to use the song.”
