Harry Hannah sings a campfire song for a lost love in his latest single and video Alberta — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Landing ahead of his forthcoming EP The Wild Side, Alberta serves as a fine introduction to the Cobourg, Ont., artist’s adventurous and multi-faceted folk-rock style. “I like to be very visual with my writing,” Hannah considers. “It helps me submerse into the artistic universe. I don’t know if it always comes across, but there’s usually a specific scene or setting that goes along with the timeline of the story in my songs. I also try to connect those scenes when I’m writing a full project, but it’s up to the listener to interpret the song or message their own way. I want them to take what they want from it. That being said, I really enjoy when a song is so vivid, you can see it, like a painting in your head; it makes it tough to ignore what the artist has to say.”
Hannah broke on to the scene with a series of original demo tracks just last year, and has played and written with the likes of Steve O’Connor, John Switzer, Gary Craig, Barry Haggarty, Steve Briggs, Murray Foster and more. Alberta was recorded at Seneca College and The Orange Lounge Studio in Toronto, and was produced by John Switzer, Alfio Annibalini and Harry Hannah.
