Hannah Georgas is a quirky, highly sensitive, whimsical, yet serious Vancouver based singer-songwriter, recognized as one of Canada’s top emerging artists to watch. In April 2010, Hannah released her debut album, “This Is Good”. A flurry of glowing album reviews and feature pieces followed her along her first national tour for the record. Subsequently in 2011, Hannah was long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize, and nominated for two Juno Awards (Songwriter of the Year, New Artist of the Year). XM/The Verge named her Emerging Artist of The Year, weeks after she was awarded the 2011 Indie Awards’ Favorite Solo Artist of The Year. Hannah has recently completed recording her second full-length album, set for a Fall 2012 release.
