“An original lyrical folk/rock set, sprinkled with interpretations of songs by Dylan, Cohen or Waits...and some traditional blues to boot. Each song inhabits its own world.”

About Hannah FRANK GROUP
Hannah Frank Goup, featuring: Victor Sanders (guitar), Ben E. Miller (bass), Meg Thomas (percussion):
Hannah Frank's alternative folk roots music with heavy lyrics is twenty years in the making. Her clear country-tinged voice paints imagery of characters, and tells stories through prose tinged with psychology and poetry. The inventive and creative band adds top talent while conjuring up a mix of blues, Americana, rock, world and jazz.
After unexpectedly figuring out she could sing, Hannah Frank began her acoustic guitar slinging days with a mission to be a modern day Woody Guthrie, writing songs from experience. Two decades later, her influences range from traditional blues and folk songs to soul, jazz, amplified West Side blues and world music. She is a lyricst, songwriter, and guitarist whose voice lands somewhere between sweet country honey and rebellious barbed wire.
Since 2012, her band Hannah Frank Group has performed at some of Chicago's notable venues and listening rooms. The band is brimming with the talent of Meg Thomas, Ben E. Miller and Victor Sanders, plus guest All-Stars. Learn more about members here.
Regarding recordings, studios and radio: LIVE EP has been aired on WDCB 90.9FM and Hannah has appeared live on WZRD 88.3 FM and WLUW 88.7 FM, as well as on Chicago Acoustic Underground Podcast and Strobe Recording Studio's Strobe Sessions.
