Hannah Georgas

Hannah Georgas-A talented singer-songwriter, Hannah Georgas brought her own brand of folk rock on to the stage at The Cambrian Hall. Born and raised in the center of the world (Toronto…), Hannah lists her influences as both Billy Corgan, for his “melancholy lyrics,” as well as Janet Jackson, for her “strong sexual desires” (I never thought I would have put Billy and Janet in the same sentence, but there’s a first for everything). With this wide range of inspirational figures, Hannah moulds her own unique musicality into each and every one of her songs. Her talent hasn’t gone unnoticed, especially from the local community as she won The Music BC Songbird West Singer/Songwriter Competition for 2008. With this recognition, it’s perfect timing for her to release her debut EP “The Beat Stuff,” which is already available on iTunes.

At first listen, I thought she had an uncanny musical resemblance to Serena Ryder, Tegan and Sara, or even Regina Spektor. Hannah has that quirky, sultry, and personable voice that resonates throughout all the wonderful instrumental arrangements, and she uses that to her advantage by captivating the audience and drawing them in with her stories. I was really impressed by how she related with the crowd at such a personal level, even getting them to clap in unison during one of her songs.

It’s really refreshing to see a younger audience so enthusiastic about music, unlike the many belligerent drunks that come out to the local bars. You would never see these drunks slow dance to a nice folk song, which is exactly what Hannah was able to do with this all age’s crowd. It was like a high school dance all over again, minus the top 40 hits and the awkward division between genders.

With the crowd at her fingertips, Hannah, along with her “Sisters” Robbie Driscoll (bass, banjo and guitar), Niko Friessen (drums and percussion), and Aaron Joyce (lead guitar and harmonies) warmed up the audience to the point where they forgot it was snowing outside. Their song “Chit Chat” was one of my favourite tracks of the night. It had a slow acoustic build-up to a hard hitting folk track. Even with Hannah’s unique screams (or as I like to call it a yelp), she still had total control of her voice and it provided a nice change from the melodic rhythms we are so accustomed to. All in all, Hannah was the perfect beginning to a wonderful night. - Ronatron.net

Bio

Hannah Georgas is a quirky, highly-sensitive, whimsical, and yet extremely serious Vancouver-based singer/ songwriter who will one day win over Jack Black and take his hand in marriage.

Born and raised in one of the many suburbs of the T-Dot, she wrote her first song on the piano at the age of 5. In her formative years, inspired by late night summer jam sessions around camp fires Hannah chose the guitar as her primary instrument, and constant companion.

Influenced by a broad scope of musical talent - from Billy Corgan and his melancholy lyrics to Janet Jackson and her strong sexual desires - Hannah developed her own style, which she continues to fascinate audiences with. She has played a range of Canadian venues, from local cafes in Victoria to the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, and drawn a steady fan-base along the way.

Hannah recently won The Music BC Songbird West Singer/Songwriter Competition for 2008 and her debut EP "The Beat Stuff" is due for nation-wide release early in the new year. Hannah opens up her heart and soul with her music and seizes those pure moments you only wish you could describe. Her memorable songs will captivate your heart, put a smile on your face, and a tap in your toe.
