“Hannah is fantastic and an inspiration to young people everywhere” Mike Thomas, KFAV Warrenton, Mo

“Hannah Belle”, a true southern belle, you get the sense that... this is what country singers like “Dolly” and “Loretta” were like when they first got started”. Jarrett Jackson, KCJC Russellville, AR

“Next Female Star” Malia Brown, KBOK -


Hannah is an outspoken beautiful blonde lady who seems right at home on the stage. She eases any anxiety you might have brought with you and she talks like she is your long-time friend. Her southern drawl is amazing. She comes from a place I had never heard of, Red Lick, Mississippi. She is a 4th grade school teacher who is happily married. Her father is a Baptist preacher…she spoke about the lessons she learned as a child. Her genre of music expertise is “Traditional Country”. She even remarked, “I’m from Red Lick, Mississippi, what else could I do?”
True to herself, Hannah teaches with her music. She has lessons in her lyrics that are inspirational and valuable. “I know just who I am”….”Stand up for what you believe”…”Keep your feet on the ground”…She also has a song she claims is corny but I call it delightful. I believe it was called “That’s Just Life”. She says “Life’s just not what its cracked up to be”…”Why can’t I have my cake and eat it too?”..”Grass ain’t always greener on the other side”…she even adds in a line she said she stole from Forrest Gump…”Life is like a box of Chocolates, you never know what you will get.”

My favorite song of Hannah Belle’s was about forgiveness.
I am a big believer in forgiving (it is the only way to set yourself free) Check Hannah Belle out on YouTube.com/Hannah Belle Forgive…she does a great job with her words and her expression of sheer agony over the process of forgiving.
Virtually all of Hannah Belle’s songs teach; they are lessons of the right way to live and the best way to be happy. To me she just GLOWS as a human being and it shows in her performance. Thank you Hannah Belle.
Thank you to Hannah Belle for your personality, your fabulous music and for being YOU - Juanita Smith


Hannah Belle is at it again, delivering another exciting EP that has something for everyone and may have her fans trying to, “Catch Her If You Can.
With her junior release, this Mississippi native combines a variety of genres displaying a well-rounded Southern soul-filled offering to her growing fan base.
As she continues to hone her craft, her maturity is evident. With each stroke of her pen and each pluck of her guitar string, Hannah Belle delivers raw, authentic feeling and depth.
As music changes, it can be difficult for some artists to keep up; however, Hannah Belle pulls no punches as she mixes serious with fun and country with rock and pours her heart into each and every project.
Her stage presence is as memorable as her songwriting and the recent additions of music videos have allowed this small-town gal to gain more attention – and she is only getting started.
Her openness and wittiness are traits that help keep her grounded and playing the circuit of fairs, festivals, and songwriter venues allows her to remain close to the ones who cheer her success on – the fans.
Knowing what she wants to say and getting it out in song is certainly her strong suit and as her childhood dream continues to become a reality, one can only hope they catch her before she rockets to the big time. - Morgan Groover


Country artist Hannah Belle’s new EP – Catch Her If You Can, is her third release after two previous full-length albums, both of which are up to the same standard as the six songs on her latest offering which comes highly recommended for keeping up with her past works. Hannah’s progress has been steady. She has polished her skills, performing at fairs and festivals in Mississippi and surrounding states, while sharing the stage with the likes of Sawyer Brown, Diamond Rio, Bucky Covington, T Graham Brown, Jo’elSonnier, Shenandoah, Joe Diffie, and Josh Thompson, just to name a few.This is her stomping ground. And that’s why it kicks off with the fun-loving sounds of “Stomping Ground” itself. This opener rocks it up with some great banjo and an awesome chorus. But the guitars win me over as much as anything else. They have a blistering effect as they soar over the arrangement. And the music in general is first rate. It’s a classic country rocker with all the bells and whistles. Her sassy spot-on vocals top off the whole track. There is a lot of moxie to this, as a crossover track with muscular chops. It keeps up with the best around in country and rock music today.
“UnSouthern” is a lot more straight-forward classic country music, with maybe a little country-pop going for it. But traditionally it is a good tune with a less modern style to it. The vocals are more Patsy Cline style than the previous track, which just go to show the diversity on display. I like it though, because it contains elements of both varieties. And then there is “Forgive” with its exquisite ballad offering. This is where it gets undeniably awesome and if you haven’t heard Hannah before, you’ll likely be drawn in by her voice by now, which is a thing of beauty. And she nails it with everything she’s got. It’s a breath of fresh air to hear up to this point and glad to say beyond it until the end of this EP. It comes close to almost being more like and album because the songwriting, playing and singing are so good. “Raised” is another great track that pretty much explains the values within as well. Standing up for what is right, Hannah brings a lot to the table with every plate she lays down on it. This has a down home feel to it, with an essence of her gospel roots. You feel what she’s singing, and it just doesn’t stop. It comes on strong and hangs in with every track because it delivers in every department.
“I Can’t Make You Happy” is another fine track that shows there is no filler to be found on the disc, as it showcases her vocals that manage to make it all over the place here. If anything, this sounds more like easy listening than country, rock or pop. It’s radio-friendly no matter how you slice it. “Catch Her If You Can” takes it out, with the title track surprisingly saved for the last. But safe to say it’s not the least. Sometimes that is the case, sometimes not. But with Hannah Belle it’s good to report that all is in great shape, from her two albums right up to this hot EP, which could’ve only used a brighter sound to help it. - Larry Toering of Vents Magazine


Hannah Belle’s Catch Her If You Can – is an EP that works on every level to compete with her two albums. Both of which contain some great stuff as well, like “Little Town Square,” “Porchin’ It” and “Preacher’s Daughter” to name just a few. She’s maturing like fine wine and this EP proves she can last at her craft. From her gospel leanings to her country and pop rock prowess, she brings six new tracks to freshen things up. To start with, “Stomping Ground” she gets the groove on with a killer opener to set the show on the road. A song that contains everything a rocking country good time needs, from excellent vocals to banjo. It’s one of the three highlights on the EP, with a few others I will mention as they come. There is nothing negative to be said about this artist, and the same goes for her music. If you hear anything from the get go, it’s that much. “UnSouthern” is a less that serious approach to basically the same speed of track. It helps keep the blood boiling and she gets a few funny one liners out that give it lots of charm, as well as a wavering violin outro, which gets a little pluck at the very end, to be musically funny. These two tracks go together well, and the tempo is just right between them.

There’s no need to critique the songwriting, singing, playing and production on this release. It’s all a first class showing from all involved, but an EP length is the only issue to point out. However, a lot of singles and EP’s are still coming by the ton either way. With the next track “Forgive” she goes full on balladeer songstress and it’s a great contrast to the previous energy, to keep focus on Hannah’s singing. Another great song is the result. And that stays true also on the next track “Raised” which is another highlight about standing your ground with the value you grew up on. It’s all about lessons and she does a good job of laying a few of them out, keeping it real all the way. The guitar carries this with a clever riff and some sweeping acoustic parts to spice it up. “I Can’t Make You Happy” slows down again with some lovely piano on another great ballad that drives a little faster than the former one. And while it’s not one of the EP’s highlights, it’s still a solid track with a lot of classic appeal. Hannah Belle has a background in not only gospel but classic country as well, and this displays some of those values involved in the structure of the classic country artists who pioneered it. All good things must come to an end, and although this EP plays long, it’s still an EP. It helps to pack them with as much punch as possible, and taking it to the highest level you can, to have the impact of a full-length release. Putting “Catch Her If You Can” as the finale was the right move to make you want to push play again once it’s all over. This is the third highlight from my perspective because it ends just as well as it starts, and that’s just one reason why this is such a good EP. It’s very consistent and just as good as here two full album releases. It makes a very good addition to them. - Elvin Graham


Bro Paul Southerland,

I wanted to express our gratitude for the outstanding job Hannah Belle did for us at our Founder’s Day celebration this year. We could not have picked a better group of people to work with. You and your team made it easy for us to get set up right on time and delivered one of the best shows I have seen in some time. The band was very good and Hannah was outstanding. Her interaction with the crowd during and after the show proved her to be a consummate professional. You exceeded our expectations and I look forward to seeing more of Hannah Belle in the future.

Marty Stroud,
Vice President- Wesson Chamber of Commerce - Marty Stroud
