Hannah Kaminer is a folk/Americana artist based in Asheville, NC. Raised in small towns in western North Carolina, her songwriting ranges from echoes of Appalachian and bluegrass traditions towards classic country and even rock. Her cloudless voice and silvery melodies are a haunting pairing with gutsy, gut-wrenching lyrics about loss, love, and home.
Kaminer initially ventured into songwriting as a homesick college student in Texas, longing for the Blue Ridge Mountains. After a stint as a medieval literature teacher, she moved home to North Carolina, where she was drawn into a group of songwriting friends. Her first performance of her original work on stage was in Asheville’s citywide Brown Bag Songwriting Competition. Kaminer won crowd favorite and the grand prize – the opportunity to record at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC. Her debut, Acre by Acre, was released in 2015.
Over the course of the next two years, Kaminer set out to create a fuller sound, experimenting with her band, Heartbreak Highlight Reel. Returning to the studio as a frontwoman and co-producer, Kaminer enlisted Grammy-winning engineer Julian Dreyer for her sophomore project. With the support of a successful Kickstarter campaign, along with a North Carolina Regional Artist Project Grant, Kaminer released Heavy Magnolias in March 2018.
