BEYOND THE BORDERS OF WHAT'S EXPECTED
Hannah Frank is a Midwestern songwriter whose first forays into music swept through rural country blues, raw cowboy chords, and surprising lyrics.
Soaking up Chicago's varied music scene, you will now also hear traces of jazz, world, rock and the electrifying energy of urban blues. Characters and scenes step out of songs in full regalia.
Giving a soulful twist to blues and roots repertoire and nods to songwriter aces with select covers, plus original material, the effect is mysterious, evocative and fun.
