Bio

Hannah Blackburn grew up the infamous ‘middle-child’, nestled in the 'burbs of Australia’s bush capital, Canberra. Hannah recalls her early years banned from the primary school talent quest, she was specifically told - “you will never sing”. Moving forward, after travel and a music business degree, Hannah now calls Melbourne home.

These days, Blackburn's core music influences are Sharon Van Etten, Paul Kelly, and War On Drugs. These artists works shaped her singles With Rest, and most recent Did You Always Know. Working part time in a café, Hannah spends her time writing, recording and developing her sound.

With a glorious vocal and warm playing on display Hannah's music rolls towards you in this precisely unhurried fashion which belies the pace at which you'll want to consume it, tbh.

Your ability to share something that is so intimate and heartbreaking, and then deliver it in a way that's so beautifully charming and honest, all at the same time, is really impressive. Also completely overwhelming. It's fierce but in the most delicate way. The bit where you come to a halt was powerful. Gorgeous at every step.
