Play 90 second soundbite of 'Everything Is Changing' @ 'CD quality'
Like many artists before Hannah has chosen to go with just the single name - short, catchy, memorable. Ok, that might help people remember the name but what's more important is, will people remember the music and the voice? Methinkso!! Hannah has a strong and natural sounding voice and when that's combined with her polished songs and sensitive piano work, a light comes on - a new light - a bright light. Hannah is pure class and 'Everything Is Changing' is a superb piece of work that is sure to go down well wherever it's heard. Hannah sings with an enthusiasm similar to Madonna and a sensitivity like that of Carol King. She has a beautiful voice and knows just how to get the best out of it. It would have been easy for Hannah to have gone down the too well trodden R&B road; thankfully, she's avoided that path and chosen a route that approaches pop-folk but with very classy undertones. Loads of sensitive orchestration adds even more depth to her already sensitive songs. But, orchestra or stripped down Hannah is just quality. Listening to Hannah makes me feel good, warm, comfortable, safe and nicely fulfilled - there's a natural 'spark' in her voice that carries through in her excellent songs, no matter what the subject matter or mood.
'Everything Is Changing' is massively impressive; no matter which way you approach it it's hard to fault. Each and every song feels like a timeless classic - every one hits the spot - some more slowly than others but they all tend to be 'growers' and get there after just a couple of plays at the most. This really is an impressive album! And Hannah is divine!
Hannah has something very special goin' on and 'Everything Is Changing' is a special work. Given the right sort of exposure Hannah could be on her way to the bright lights and major stardom and 'Everything Is Changing' could and should prove to be the key to many new doors. The album is superbly produced to allow Hannah's musical abilities to be clearly heard and enjoyed - no clutter, no over-indulgence - just Hannah, pure and simple!
Hannah and 'Everything Is Changing' - genuinely beautiful - truly excellent and surely prophetic!!
