Bio

With a gutsy attitude and powerful voice, Tess Hannah’s storytelling hits you on a personal level.

Rocking her signature red electric guitar and funky socks, the mellow Melbournian singer-songwriter started hitting the local scene as a solo artist in her late teens. Since then she has expanded her sound and style with the addition of talented band mates Hayden Mitt (guitarist and backing vocalist), Ross Davidson (bass guitarist) and Charlie Ford (drummer). The four artists met at University, quickly establishing a strong musical and personal connection and still continue to create music together.

Tess Hannah’s work is a raw account of a young woman’s experiences with violence and sexual assault, testified in a frank and unapologetic manner. Although her songs express some universal experiences of intense anger and sadness, Tess also leads you to an empowered place of survival, growth and healing.

With raw lyrical transparency, soul-baring vocals and a gritty sound, Tess Hannah inspires authenticity, truth and ultimate empowerment.
