Hanna

Reach Out

Latest Records

Released: 16th August 2010 | 13 track new folk album
The musicianship is uniformly excellent with Hanna herself playing guitar, keys, flute, mandolin and percussion and support from brilliant musos like Eddie Myer of Turin Brakes and Nick Tribe of Los Albertos fame. Hanna's beautiful voice of course dominates proceedings - and with a voice like hers of course it should - and she adds a rich topping of complex harmonies. There are lots of singer songwriters these days which often means more songwriter than singer but Hanna uses the voice as an instrument, like a jazz singer but this is not jazz. It's sort of folk with an acoustic psychedelic tinge which might come from John Thursfield's sympatico production. Some records take you some place else like a film score. Some records ask big questions like John Lennon's primal therapy album. Transporting and enquiring. This album is one such -  like lying down in the country on a hazy summery day while the music seeps into you and you look at the sky and gently ask those big questions like what does the future hold. It is not a scary feeling like the Lennon album but meditative and healing.
