Hannah vs. The Many / Bio

Hannah vs. The Many consists of Brooklyn singer/songwriter/antiheroine Hannah Fairchild and some of the more musically inclined members of her beloved urban family.

Hannah originally moved to New York City expecting to find work and meaning in the city’s seedy underground indie musical theater community, which, as it turns out, doesn’t actually exist. After two years of being rejected by every possible elementary school tour, Hannah said “screw this” and started writing her own material.

Her lyrics are rooted in her musical theater background, with acerbic, rapid-fire observations that reflect her childhood obsession with Stephen Sondheim. Musically, she bends genres at will, blending influences from Kate Bush to The Replacements to Leslie Gore. Hannah’s songs tell stories of heartbreak, hook-ups, drunken victories, narrow escapes, and all the other “pretty little tragedies” that come with being young and broke in the greatest city in the world.

“If you’re looking for a hell-bent, theatrical indie rocker then look no further…”
- What’s Protocol

“gorgeously jangly, menacing, jazz-tinged powerpop…(All Our Heroes Drank Here is) an early contender for best rock album of 2012.”
- New York Music Daily
