HANNAH THOMAS has a style of her own that is hard to define, a little too rock to be country, a little too country to be rock. Amy Ray, half of the Grammy winning duo Indigo Girls, probably describes her best when she calls Thomas an “outlaw songwriter.”
Hannah began performing in 2006 at 16 when she wasn’t even old enough to be in most of the venues, but they recognized her talent and drive and decided to support this up and coming super star of tomorrow and she has been honing her craft and building a loyal fan base ever since.
Hannah is already a force to be reckoned with, having won the several music awards including the 2011 Georgia Lottery’s All Access Music Search. This award, something like the Georgia version of American Idol, started out with a field of thousands of contestants and led to Hannah getting to record an EP in Los Angeles at Capitol Records.
Those “outlaw” roots can be heard in her music. With influences like Johnny Cash and Terri Clark, Heart and even Aerosmith it’s easy to understand why Hannah’s music can be so hard to label. But there is no mistaking the power in Thomas’ voice.
“No auto tune needed for that voice” says Grammy winner Shawn Mullins.
Hannah has performed at The Country Throwdown Fest with Montgomery Gentry and Little Big Town, The GA Country Fair with Gretchen Wilson, and has opened for such artists as Zac Brown, Craig Morgan, Mother’s Finest and Antigone Rising. She has also already had numerous television appearances including live morning and afternoon TV and the Georgia Lottery competition.
No words describe Hannah better as an artist than those said by Clay Cook of the Zac Brown Band-“When you came out on stage I had no idea we were going to witness about 3/4 badass. I can see you as the next Gretchen Wilson or Sonia Leigh.”
2011 proved to be quite a year of firsts for Thomas, from headlining and releasing a live CD at Eddie’s Attic, to sharing the stage with Michelle Malone and Sonia Leigh, to touring all across the Southeast, Thomas is ready to find out what is yet to come in 2012.
