Hannah Shira Naiman

Hannah Naiman grew up just north of Toronto but her family was steeped in the musical tradition of the Appalachian Mountains. Her banjo-driven songs draw on folk traditions and themes she heard time and again through her parent’s music and community. Hannah’s songs “are a little bit crooked, a little bit new.” Her sound has been described as recalling that of Gillian Welch and The Be Good Tanyas and is inspired by Ola Belle Reid and Hazel Dickens. While Hannah’s style is decidedly Appalachian folk, she’s also influenced by styles outside the genre, such as English and Irish ballads, African spirituals and gospel music, as well as the pop and indie music that filled her younger days– Tori Amos, Ani Difranco, and other strong female songwriters. “I think these inspirations come through in my lyrics, and in my chord changes, and my musical choices in general,” she says. Currently, Hannah is recording her debut album, for which she received a FACTOR Juried Sound Recording Loan. This follows her recent award-winning project, a children’s album recorded with her mom, Kathy Reid-Naiman, called Here We Go Zodeo. Their record received a 2012 Parents’ Choice Gold Award, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award and a SiriusXM Indie Award. This year, Hannah is looking to take her own music on the road and reach audiences across North America and beyond. Hannah will appear with her father, renowned banjo player Arnie Naiman.
