Hannah Gill is a soulful 20-year old vocal powerhouse and songwriter whose voice brings to mind soulful performers such as Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey, and Kate Nash.
Her uncommon vocal talent combined with wisdom and maturity in her young age is what sets Hannah apart. With a sound that is alive, fresh and vibrant, and includes a jazz vibe that is crisp and modern - Hannah rises above the created and overdone sound that frequents today's airwaves.
It wasn't long before Gill paired up with producer and musician Brad Hammonds. As soon as Hammonds heard her, he understood that Gill was something special. Gill's vocal sophistication conveys deep emotion without resorting to histrionics or auto tune synthesized vocals.
They were soon on a roll as Gill, accompanied by Hammonds, along with a spare group of double bass, drums and trumpet crooned her way to the effervescent and sparkling sound.
In the studio or onstage, Gill is spontaneous. After all, she notes, "The whole point of music is to experiment."
Her live band – Hammonds [guitar], Mathias Kunzli [drums], Jason DiMatteo [bass] and Matthew Jodrell [trumpet] - brings a wealth of experience with them, ranging from work with Paul Anka to Regina Spektor.
Hannah herself has worked with successful music veterans including four-time Grammy Winner, Brian Vibberts, who produced her debut self-titled EP.
Hannah’s first single from I Feel Awake gained impressive reviews and after debuting through Earmilk is now featured on both MTV and VH1.
Her music video for single I Feel Awake featured in MTVu’s Freshmen competition where Hannah beat off stiff competiton from acts such as the hugely successful Sheppard. Her music video is now in full rotation on their channel.
Every journey begins with a single step, so the proverb goes. Hannah Gill has made hers into a giant leap. - FROM SONICBIDS
