Every now and then, an artist steps onto a stage, stands behind a microphone, and quite simply wows the world with their voice. Every phrase in each line, is delivered with a great balance of passion, power, grace and tenderness. When this happens, an artist instantly sets themselves apart from their peers, and creates a musical space that only they can fill from that moment on.
Similarly, from time to time, an artist comes along whose on-stage personality and off-stage personality are as intertwined as body and soul. They share the unique ability to generate the exact same “feel good” response from everyone they meet; be it members of their audience, members of their team, or music business professionals. You fall in love with an artist like this straight away. You don't become a fan over time, you become a fan in a heartbeat.
Make no mistake about it, that kind of voice and that kind of heart do not often exist in the music world. Rarer still will you find an artist who embodies both. That kind of artist, that kind of person, is someone very special, indeed, and Hannah Anders is that kind of special someone.
This Houston native possesses a voice every bit as big as her home state of Texas, and a heart as sweet as the peaches that the state of Georgia where she was raised. Now working out of Los Angeles, CA where she is signed to the Arrow Music Agency, Hannah fronts the Hannah Anders Band and also runs a successful vocal studio, something she first did on Nashville's Music Row after earning a degree in Vocal Performance from the cities esteemed Belmont University. Hannah's been working hard at making her presence known in Los Angeles and with reactions like those below, it's safe to say she knows what she's doing!
"The Hannah Anders Band is a southern-fried collection of artists who emit more swagger on stage in 5 minutes of music than most country outfits can do in an hour!" - JMWest Live, House of Blues, Los Angeles.
"In 30 years of producing 'live' shows, from Creedence Clearwater to Charlie Daniels, what a breath of fresh air it was to work with Hannah Anders and her entire organization. Hannah's great voice had the crowd on their feet. The band was as good as any headliner I have worked with and on top of that, the entire band looked, performed, and acted like they were on stage at Carnegie Hall. Did I mention that Hannah also mesmerized the crowd with the National Anthem?!" - Terry Turner, Executive Producer, DJ, and event promoter for Radio WNZF.
"The stage comes alive when Hannah Anders and her band hit the very first note. Her energy and stage presence, enveloped by the amazing musicianship of the band, doesn't end until the last note fades away. Her show is exciting and powerful." - Kevin Klane, Radio DJ for Kix Country 98.7
"[Southern Free] is a radio ready song if ever there was one. The kind of song that should be on the air on country music stations nation wide....it's easy to imagine Anders being the voice of your girls night out." - Gary Schwind, Entertainment writer for AXS.com
Signing with Arrow Music Agency in January of 2015 was certainly an accurate indicator of the success that would come Hannah’s way throughout the rest of this year. In February, Hannah Anders clinched the Los Angeles Akademia Award for Best Country/Rock Song with their rip-roaring anthem, 'Turn It Up.' This same song was also nominated by LOZ Radio for Song Of The Year, and held the number one spot through the month of April on Australia’s Power FM Station. Hannah’s songwriting kudos were also recognized by the world famous Dodge Ram Truck Company, who commissioned her to write the theme song for their newest ad campaign in Atlanta, GA.
In late summer of this year, Hannah ventured on tour to Ireland and the UK under the stewardship of KEMC Global, where her sense of fun and easy-going manner, coupled with her genuine charm and absolute professionalism shined throughout every show and appearance. Compliments like these became the norm wherever she went,
"The best KEMC artist by a mile that we've had perform, can't wait to have Hannah back." - Shane Carroll, owner of The Stand Bar, Roscrea, Ireland.
"Incredible artist, couldn't believe how well the originals went over with the audience." - Shane D'Arcy, owner of The Black Boot Bar, Ferbane, Ireland.
"What an amazing person and probably one of the best acts we've ever had perform, too. Hannah Anders will make it big here for sure." - Margaret, manager of The Princess of Wales, London, England.
"Hannah Anders was a great experience for all of us here at KEMC. She has a perfect attitude, incredible talent, and definitely has both the desire and hunger to succeed. We would be delighted to be part of Hannah's success here in Ireland, the UK, and indeed greater Europe." - Peter Kennedy, CEO of KEMC Global.
It’s safe to say that you can expect big things from Hannah Anders. 2016 will see a return to Ireland and the UK, a trip to Rio De Janeiro for performances during the Summer Olympics, and scheduled radio releases throughout the year.
