Artist: Hannah Georgas
Vancouver, BC has such a strong music scene right now and I believe Hannah Georgas is a main component as to why. Her synth-pop, singer/songwriter style and witty lyrics are a breath of fresh air.
Originally from Newmarket, Ontario, Hannah moved to Victoria to attend university, and later on located to Vancouver.
She won the “Emerging Artist of the Year” award at XM’s Verge Music Awards in 2011 and “Solo Artist of the Year” at the Sirius/XM-sponsored Indies. Her first album, ‘This Is Good’ was put up for the Polaris Music Prize. And at the 2011 Juno Awards, Georgas was nominated for both “Best New Artist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year.”
She has toured with fellow Canadian Kathleen Edwards as her opening act, plus was apart of Kathleen’s backing ensemble.
Her second self-titled album was released on October 2, 2012. Check out one of my favorite tracks from the album, titled ‘Millions’. Ryan Guldemond from the band MOTHER MOTHER also makes an appearance!
‘I wanna make a million bucks. I wanna make my millions.
My fear is a crutch, a little hell that I live in.
If she can do it what the fuck, how come I can’t?
I wanna make a million bucks. I wanna make my millions.’
