Hannah Wicklund has been traveling fast and far, performing in big cities and small towns her whole life. With her new album, Produced by Sam Kiszka, due out this Fall, she is now arriving somewhere completely unexpected. Ethereal texturing, smokey falsetto vocals, string section surprises and guitar solos that carry equal parts pain and joy are woven tastefully into what Wicklund says is , “A record that just sounds like ME”. Much like Hannah’s paintings she has become known for, each song is intricately entrancing and honored with two things seemingly lost in today’s world….patience and time. With Sam Kiszka on bass/keys/organ and Danny Wagner on drums (both of Greta Van Fleet), the songs serve as a rock ’n' roll roadmap to a crossroads that Wicklund has been unknowingly gravitating towards for over a decade. X marks the spot where the weary girl, speeding towards the woman she will become, meet in a fiery head-on collision. On this album, we hear from the woman rising from that wreckage. The woman who’s scarred but smarter, holds compassion for the girl who carried her here, and with wide-open eyes, unflinchingly stares down the future.
