Armed with her violin, loop pedal, and voice, sonic weaver Hannah Epperson arranges musical landscapes without indulgence or over-saturation. As a solo performer and collaborative artist, she has joined forces with a versatile cast of collaborators across a spectrum of genres and disciplines.

More recently, these creative explorations have included composing and performing for interdisciplinary film and dance projects across the U.S. and in New York, where she now resides. Hannah's breadth as a collaborative and compositional powerhouse stems from from an eclectic experiential and educational background: from learning Appalachian folk tunes by ear with a cowgirl in Utah; to touring her solo project by sailboat with permaculturists; to accompanying Flamenco dancers in Spain.

Hannah's unique approach to composition and performance earned her one of British Columbia's Peak Performance Project awards in 2013 and international recognition as a powerful songwriter whose compositions weave classical emotion together with the raw energy of indie music. Her sound crosses genres and will continue to offer various levels of musical and emotional exploration to the same listener at different times.

Hannah’s debut LP, Upsweep, was released in September 2016 as Volume I of a two-volume exploration in bifurcated songwriting and production.
