HANNAH ROOTH'S ACOUSTIC PROJECT
Wild Hum is the debut album of Americana-Soul singer-songwriter Hannah Rooth, as well as the name of her acoustic band. In August of 2018, she and friends April Faith-Slaker & Adrian Avalos joined together to bring her original work to their Cambridge, MA community and produce a record. Their project resulted in a unique six-song collection that displays an inner world of deep tenderness and longing, scheduled for release on September 27th, 2019.
"Strange and emotive, her lyrics are poignant, while her vocal delivery is unique and what truly sets her apart" (Independent Music Reviews). Bolstered by April (cellist), Adrian (guitarist), and six studio musicians, the release is a stylistically divergent and sonically stimulating work. "Divorce in the Water" is sad, whimsical dream-rock colored by bright, rich vocals and resonant cello and violin compositions. "Tenderly" is dramatic, bluesy R&B with sensual, striking vocals and a dynamic melding of string flesh (cello, bass) and electric bones (bass, guitar). "It's Wondering If You'll Be Here Tomorrow" is a gorgeously depressing country song, soft and haunting with solitary classical guitar. All songs meld together themes of water and steel, ocean and railroad track - a tribute to the songstress's journey of powering forward whilst diving painfully deep.
The album is a long time coming, as Hannah began composing songs about as early as she could write. Afraid that her compositions and her inner world would make people sad, she hid both away. In the wake of her divorce in late 2017, she found the courage and necessity to bring her compositions out into the world. Encouraged by friends and loved ones, she resolved in Summer 2018 to pursue her passion. In 2019, she moved to Orange County, CA to pursue a career as a songwriter and recording artist near Los Angeles.
Forging full steam ahead ever since, Hannah has raised $10,000 to record Wild Hum through Plaid Dog Studios, organized successful tours for the band, and collaborated with Kyle Burgs on an independent music video for her first single, "Divorce in the Water." Alongside the Wild Hum release, she is releasing her first Pop single, "When It All Comes Down," on October 11th, 2019 - produced by Big Chris Flores of The Rehab Studio (producer for Slash of Guns & Roses). She is also working on multiple projects including a single with Grammy-nominated producer Christian Davis and an extensive Pop collection with producer Mitch Maanao.
Her Wild Hum bandmates complete an impressive, expressive acoustic team. April Faith-Slaker is a seasoned experimental cellist and solo performer, whose experience includes collaborations with the Mynabirds and a composition in a Tim Guthrie film. Adrian Avalos is a life-long multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who has recorded and performed with samba, jazz, alternative, folk, and hip hop groups across the country. Equal to musical expertise, their kindness, sincerity, and charismatic friendship give Wild Hum its spirit.
Hannah is in the process of navigating an emotionally suffocated childhood, divorce, and lifelong depression and anxiety. Her first album tells the tale of a tender soul taking courage to open to herself and the world. She endeavors to embolden listeners through her own journey of emotional healing. Her honesty and raw power set her apart, and her beloved community lifts her up. In the words of friend and supporter Danielle O'Sullivan, “Wild Hum will remind you that you’re not alone in your hardships, and that the world is vast and full of depth and beautiful souls, and that you yourself are one of them.” (Danielle O’Sullivan)
