Hannah Kaminer is a folk/Americana artist based in Asheville, NC. Raised in small towns in western North Carolina, she fuses melodic echoes of Appalachian traditions with wistful, Americana-style songwriting. Her yearning voice and silvery melodies are a haunting pairing with gutwrenching lyrics about loss, love, and home.
She began to perform in 2014 after she entered Asheville’s citywide Brown Bag songwriting competition in 2013, winning both Grand Prize and Crowd Favorite. Following a warmly received homemade EP (“Living Room Recordings”), in 2014 she ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for her first professional album.
“Acre by Acre” was recorded with Julian Dreyer at Asheville’s Echo Mountain Studios and released in March 2015. It is available on iTunes and CDBaby.
In July 2015 she was invited by the Harrison Center for the Arts in Indianapolis, IN, to do a 48-Hour Songwriting Residency. You can listen to her song about city revitalization here.
In December 2016, she was selected to receive a Regional Artist Project Grant to assist in funding her first full-length studio album, planned for release in late 2017.
She currently performs solo and with her full band, Heartbreak Highlight Reel, in Western North Carolina and the surrounding regions.
