View Magazine: Hanna Bech
“A unique voice exploring fantastical realms”
“a very whimsical feel”
Hamilton Blues Lovers
This amazing recording kicks off infectiously and hypnotically then reaches a sonic crescendo with the powerful, Tidal Wave. It’s all finished with two delicate songs that serve as calming afterglow.
Hanna’s stunning back up team includes Rachel Nolan, Jon Busuttil, Michel DeQuevedo, John Muller, Pamela Gardner, Alex Samaras, Geoff Ball and Caroline Olsen. No matter what’s thrown at them by this EP (Folk, jazz pop, classical, etc), they handle it with gusto.”
“Bech’s impressive vocal range and ability to write capricious songs without a hint of novelty make this a stunning debut. The entire album feels like Tim Minchin, an Australian comedian and songwriter with a natural gift to make his listeners laugh and cry at the same time. This artist may just be starting out, but her work is already leagues ahead of others.”
“Canadian singer Hanna Bech brings a dose of feel-good with her playful single and video ‘ABCs’ …makes you feel happy to simply be alive. This is how life is supposed to be!”
Boston Survival Guide:
“At first blush, the upbeat quirkiness of Canadian Hanna Bech and her personable brand of pop music is somewhat reminiscent of Ingrid Michaelson…”
“Other songs on the upcoming release (such as the title track and the very intriguing “Tidal Wave”) have a darker undercurrent and a more complex weave. There are also some lovely strings that make an appearance, and she delves into darker and deeper waters as it goes along. Overall, the EP feels like musical theater, with some dramatic moments.”
John E Simpson:
This is a fun read. He calls me a beguiler of the status quo, and says Hamilton has mysterious pixie-dust in its water.
“In any case, I offer you today Hanna Bech’s Naked Bones: a mix of bouncy, “I may be stuck in traffic but I’m tapping my fingers on the steering wheel”-type moments, and some haunting, anomalous hints at deeper waters stirring below the bounce.”
