Following in the footsteps of her mom, a country singer and her dad, a musician, Hannah May Allison moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University and pursue a career in music. Inspired by everyone from Patsy Cline to Katy Perry, Hannah grew up singing in choirs and learning how to play the guitar.
Incorporating the sounds of both country and pop into her music, Hannah often finds herself blending the stories found in country with the catchy lyrics found in pop songs. Her songs are also relatable, which Hannah strives for as "it's the best feeling ever when someone says 'I really related to your song.'"
"Right Now" you can listen to Hannah's new single which was released on May 17th. Planning to continue to release new music throughout the year, Hannah has been writing like crazy.
Find Hannah's music on Apple Music and Spotify.
