"Créme Brûlee put to music"

Extracts from the ***** star review from danish music magazine Gaffa after concert at the SPOT festival:

" Standing ovations seemed a natural finale to the audience's reaction "

" A debut album is now eagerly awaited "

" The comparison with Feist and Jenny Wilson is right. But it's no deluted version. Here's also a sweet voice and fine electronic "plink plunks", and it's as great as the rolemodels. "
- Gaffa


"Hannah Schneider- Lots of Personal Integrity"

Extracts from the **** review of the debut album in danish music magazine Soundvenue:

"With a rare talent for great pop melodies and an unpretentious view on genres, Hannah Schneider impress on her debut album. "

"From the beginning to the end, it's clear that the debutant's craftsmanship is outstanding. Melodies are skilfully written, and the texts are quirky and self-ironic with lines like »I’m old enough to know what not to say – but young enough to do it anyway«. "

"When you listen to the best songs of the album "This is Goodbye" and "The Summer Ended", there's no doubt that Denmark has got a rarely capable pop songwriter that dares to put herself at risk- and there are not too many of those these days!" - Soundvenue


"MySpace Discovery - Hannah Schneider"

From the british music blog EQ:

"This young lady from Denmark is unbelievably talented.

Mandy sent over Hannah Schneider's new music video for "Raindrops" and that alone is enough to get me rather excited about her remarkable collection of tracks - but having just listened to a few of them on MySpace like "This Is Goodbye" and "Waiting For You", I'm throughly convinced that Hannah Schneider is an act that everyone would just eat up if given bigger audience penetration.

She's like a cooler, more fashionable and slightly more electronic version of Duffy with shades of Imogen Heap and Sia to help in the counter-balance. I won't rest until a copy of her self-titled debut album is in my hot little hands - you shouldn't either as it's available on iTunes right now." - EQ

Bio

Inspired by the great number of interesting current Scandinavian artists like Lykke Li, Jenny Wilson and El Perro Del Mar, Hannah Schneider creates melancholic and playful pop, crafted with a love for the singer/songwriter tradition and a fascination with electronic sounds and samples

Copenhagen based artist, Hannah Schneider, grew up in a family of classical musicians, and naturally started to play both the piano and the violin at age five. The love for her piano soon turned into a great fascination of small synths and keyboards, and inspired Hannah to start composing at the age of 13. Since then she has written songs, gone to the conservatory in Copenhagen, and performed in various constellations all over Europe.

In 2009, she was signed to Mermaid Records/Sony BMG, and the self titled debut album came out in September of that year. It was well received both by radio stations and press, who called Hannah, “a rarely skilled pop songwriter, who manages to put herself at stake” and predicted her international success.

She had a couple of solid radio hits ("Waiting for You" + "Raindrops") and toured extensively. She also appeared on several national TV and radio shows, and toured the US both as a headliner and opening for Kim Richey.

In March 2011, the unplugged/live CD "Window Sessions" came out, consisting of both songs from the debut and new songs from the forthcoming album, interpreted by several well-known Danish artists in Hannah Schneider's windowsill.
The second studio album will be out in the fall of 2011 on Mermaid Records/SonyBMG.

Hannah has co-written songs with many internationally acclaimed songwriters, such as Jeff Cohen (Teitur, Macy Gray), Itaal Shuur (Jewel, Maxwell) and Kim Richey, with whom she wrote the song “The Absence of Your Company” that was featured on Grey’s Anatomy.
