Hannah Christianson

"There is a sweetness to the voice of singer Hannah Christianson. A tenderness in each whisping breath that dances elegantly over the delicate touch of each piano key. Her voice floats and dips in a calming and ethereal sort of way. It seems effortless, but its beauty is undeniable."

-Brian Carroll, Red Line Roots

 

     Hannah Christianson is an award-winning, Boston-based indie singer-songwriter who holds her own among artists like Regina Spektor and Ingrid Michaelson. She's been a finalist in several international songwriting festivals including the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Great American Song Contest, and has opened for a selection of well-respected artists including Couer De Pirate, Jen Chapin, and Raining Jane. She recently released her latest album, "Grow the World You're Dreaming Of," to a sold-out show at The Burren Backroom in Somerville, MA. As a traveling soul on a journey of self-discovery through music, her writing encompasses the human condition with honesty, beauty, and hope.

     With extensive studies in music therapy, songwriting, and as a certified yoga teacher, Hannah blends her experience and knowledge with her intuitive musicianship and creativity to bring worlds of emotion and color, through sound, to life. She weaves her own personal journey of self-healing into the music she creates, as she also tunes into the environment around her and what others might be feeling, bridging it all together into the expressions she shares. Hannah is currently exploring new avenues for sharing music more interactively for self-transformation--particularly through workshops and yoga classes, combining music with meditation and movement, and performing at house concerts, art galleries, and other intimate, listening venues.

"A good mix of sweetness and pop sensibility, with an engaging voice that soundslike fine wine."

-Peter Swenson

Director of Social Media at CDBaby

"Hannah accompanies herself on piano and guitar with confidence and panache, and her music and lyrics are irresistible, filled with joy, humor and love of life. I’m not sure if she is capable of writing a non-catchy tune.  The whole world will be singing Hannah’s songs sometime very soon."
