IMC Festival of the Arts Performance – Hannah Christianson
July 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Hannah Christianson is an award-winning, Boston-based indie singer-songwriter who holds her own among artists like Regina Spektor and Ingrid Michaelson. She’s been a finalist in several international songwriting festivals including the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and Great American Song Contest, and has opened for a selection of well-respected artists including Couer De Pirate, Jen Chapin, and Raining Jane. She recently released her latest album, “Grow the World You’re Dreaming Of,” to a sold-out show at The Burren Backroom in Somerville, MA. As a traveling soul on a journey of self-discovery through music, her writing encompasses the human condition with honesty, charisma, and hope.
With extensive studies in music therapy, songwriting, and as a certified yoga teacher, Hannah blends her experience and knowledge with her intuitive musicianship and creativity to bring worlds of emotion and color, through sound, to life. She weaves her own personal journey of self-healing into the music she creates, as she also tunes into the environment around her and what others might be feeling, bridging it all together into the expressions she shares. Hannah is currently exploring new avenues for sharing music more interactively for self-transformation–particularly through workshops and yoga classes, combining music with meditation and movement, and performing at house concerts, art galleries, and other intimate, listening venues.
