Hannah Rooth has such an eclectic voice. Strange and emotive, her lyrics are poignant, while her vocal delivery is unique and what truly sets her apart. Hannah’s especial style is reminiscent of other powerful female performers, Tori Amos, and Quebec singer/cellist Jorane. However, Hannah also brings an innocence to her performance that albeit is in opposition to some notable pop contemporaries; I do see some similarities with Regina Spektor and St. Vincent (Annie Erin Clark).
Hannah and her newly formed band Wild Hum, are promising to release a full length album this spring. I look forward to tighter production on the full length and more of a full band sound from the trio that includes cellist April Faith-Slaker and guitarist, Adrian Avalos. In the mean time, Hannah has been busy composing and venturing out at various locales in the U.S. You can see her upcoming tour schedule on her website here.
