Kick starting our festival launch we are pleased to introduce the Hannah Anders Band.
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.
