Hannah Judson
Hannah Judson
Hannah Judson is an internationally touring American/French singer-songwriter based between Paris France and the San Francisco Bay Area. She performs original indie folk rock songs that draw her audience into lyrically potent narratives constructed with electric guitar and percussive vocals, live looping harmonies and rhythmic layers. Hannah’s vocals are intimate, with a modern folk sound reminiscent of Cat Power, Lucinda Williams and Elliott Smith. Noted as “the real deal” by UK’s country music Maverick Magazine, and “with a style that channels Elliott Smith” by Indie Country fm radio, Hannah has appeared regularly in Paris, throughout Europe and the US west coast.

Hannah Judson’s most recent release of new work reflects a career that spans grunge-era Chicago and post-rock bohemian Paris, France. Her recent EP “Becoming” reflects a shedding of past styles, and creative restraints, that cleared room where both tendencies toward spacious lyrical environments, and straight on rock co-exist in a unified collection. She will be on tour in 2019 to support this record, in Europe in the spring, and on the west coast (USA) in the summer, with a final touch base on the east coast (USA) in the fall.


Influences from both Chicago and Paris geographies are evident in this collection of original songs. Judson’s lyrically motivated songs are couched in confident electric guitar offered by Banjo Bones and soaring leads by Charlie Galunic. Brian Clevinger’s basslines support and counter the melody and Giorgi Khokhobashvili’s blistering jazz violin shows up on several tracks.


Hannah Judson named the EP before Michelle Obama’s book came out. She says, “Becoming is such a great word, straddled with meaning, both verb and adjective, beautiful and in transformation.” Becoming was produced by JL Espada in Sacramento, CA and Fontainebleau, France, and is released on Boneyard Records. She is continuing to work with Espada on her next album (working title “Stingray”) for a late 2019 release.

Hannah Judson is a risky, engaging songwriter, constructing ethereal environments where danger and love combat in free fall. These songs lull the listener comfortably out on a ledge to show the view from there, then offer a little tug when it’s time to come back inside. Judson’s songwriting is rooted by the narrative tradition of Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez and is seamed with references to seminal artists like Liz Phair, Jill Sobule and Neutral Milk Hotel. Using delicate breathy clicks and pops to create percussive tracks, Hannah Judson’s performance is warm, funny, quirky and welcoming. SK Shlomo said “Love this! Dylan meets Martha Wainwright."

Hannah was active on the alternative music scene in Chicago that circled around the School of the Art Institute (where she studied painting and sound) and Wicker Park. In Chicago she was a continuous member of folk, grunge and alt/rock bands, as the songwriter and lead vocalist. She produced and hosted GrrrlsRock events at Beat Kitchen. In 2014 she founded MUSEfest, an international event to support inspirational women in music, film and art. In 2018 she starting working with Boneyard Records in Sacramento, CA. She is currently Director of Music for the LA Fashion Film Festival (LAFFF). She has an MBA in music business from Berklee College of Music/SNHU. She currently performs with Charlie Galunic (Professor at INSEAD) on lead guitar, and Brian Clevinger (Absynth Creator) on bass.


Hannah Judson is originally from Maine, and lives in the Paris Region, France.
Oh Manitou
Oh Manitou
If you look at the music that sticks with you your whole life, it's often made by musicians who went out on a limb to pursue their muse, trends be damned. From the very first time you hear Oh Manitou's “From The Forest” EP, you can tell it has that special glow of a band that does exactly that. It's not that “From The Forest” is particularly obtuse or even difficult to describe -- the ingredients are right there on the surface: rock, folk, Americana and psychedelia with prominent shades of jazz and punk. And yet you can't pin Oh Manitou down to any one of those things. For example, the bands use of slide guitar is not out of a desire to be a country band. Likewise, to hear the jazz influence in these songs you have to open yourself up to the idea that "jazz" can mean something you'd never imagined it could be. And even though some of Oh Manitou's songs draw on raucous punk energy, this stuff is as far removed from punk purism as you can possibly get. In the end, the sound the band comes up with is too imaginative and flexible to just write it off as "rock" -- even though it is rock! People always say music is just the same twelve notes -- maybe so, but apparently there's still a lot more left to say with them. Good thing Oh Manitou's here to remind us.
The Dillingers
The Dillingers
This organic duo based in San Francisco, California, is creating a new wave of psychedelic dark music, with their bases on the 60's ideology and way of living, strong message, positive vibrations, anarchy, freedom, emotions and surrealism expressed in the form of sounds.
2016 They released their first studio album "Shamans of the future", also a EP called "DATA Vol1", exploring with beats and synthesizers founding a sound that moves them.
2017 The band was touring around south america, mostly Buenos Aires, Argentina , Montevideo, Uruguay and Mexico City, releasing their Ep "Singles", featuring with many latin musicians, such as Santi Mostaffa, Joe Volume and Ras Shanti, among others .
2018 A pretty busy year for them, with a couple of dark acoustic shows around San Francisco/Bay Area and Los Angeles, and with the release of their second album called "Back To Roots", recorded in two of the most famous studios in San Francisco, the legendary Hyde Street Studios located in the heart of downtown, there, the session was managed by the producer and drummer Chris McGrew, and in Ligthrail studios, iconic place just outside the city, there, Nick Dumitriu, producer and multi-instrumentalist, was the one who manage the session. Both sessions were filmed and the footage will be also released among with the album, all recorded with vintage gear, in an old school way. The mastering of the entire album was in charge of Gary Hobish at Armin Hammer Studios also from SF.
2019 Already with a bunch of shows in bay area they expect to expand their territory even more. And now releasing their new EP "Son of the Sun", all produced by Dave Shul in his studio, down in San Francisco.
Asking for more, ready to respond with power. Dillingers is decided to spread their psychedelic sound everywhere.
