"Antler CD Release Performance"

"Beautiful dual harmonies, a banjo, and pure magic. There’s an element of spirituality to this music, the soul-baring essence, the most elemental of the singer-songwriter tradition. It’s this sparse dynamic that continues to move, allure, in the most powerful and emotional way. North of the 49th parallel. A little south of heaven."

"Antler-Not Being Your Star-Disc Review"

"To say that Antler's music is eerie may be an understatement. One of the most intriguing bands I've had the pleasure of meeting here in Toronto, Antler mixes an old time country songwriting style with the avant guard."

(Shawn William Clarke,, 21 Nov 2008)

"Hot Picks"

“If you intend to play psych these days, having some variation of an “Antler” handle seems to be a prerequisite.”

Vanessa as recorded and released music as Antler, Ptarmigan, Vanessa Hanson and The Unsung.

She is releasing her debut tape as Vanessa's Entire Heart July 16th at The Press Club in Toronto.



Some people have talked about a certain quality of her voice or about the strength of her songwriting but Vanessa Hanson’s greatest strength is something else, something darker. There is intensity to her music, balanced by a delicate kind of beauty, but it’s her internal chaos, an organic otherworldly irreverence that breaks through our consciousness and drops the floor for us in the silence. At her heart there is something bestial, a feral, psychedelic power that speaks through her. We’re never quite sure, but she’s the bridge.
