Bree Sharp & Don DiLego (of Beautiful Small Machines) open the show.
With lightning-bolt vocals and intensely emotional songs, 21 year old Hannah Thomas is paving an impressive path in the music industry. She began performing in 2006 at 16 when she wasn’t even old enough to be in most of the venues and has been honing her craft and building a loyal fan base ever since. Hannah self-released a studio CD in 2008 entitled The Rest Is Yet to Come, and has been bringing her music to fans all over the southeast. Hannah is already a force to be reckoned with, having won the Georgia Country Female Artist of The Year in both 2009 and 2010, and the 2011 Georgia Lottery’s All Access Music Search among thousands of contestants
Though her roots are pure country like Johnny Cash and Terri Clark, she also has classic rock influences like Heart and even Aerosmith, and you can hear it in this singer/songwriter’s music and strong voice. “No auto tune needed for that voice” says Grammy winner Shawn Mullins.
“The Rest Is Yet To Come.” Hannah is determined to prove just that. Already receiving airplay, Hannah has performed at The Country Throwdown Fest with Montgomery Gentry and Little Big Town, The GA Country Fair with Gretchen Wilson, and has opened for such artists as Zac Brown, Craig Morgan, and Mother’s Finest. She has also already had numerous television appearances including live morning and afternoon TV and the Georgia Lottery competition. No words describe Hannah better as an artist than those said by Clay Cook of the Zac Brown Band- “When you came out on stage I had no idea we were going to witness about 3/4 badass. I can see you as the next Gretchen Wilson.”
Bree Sharp & Don DiLego forged a successful writing partnership over 10 years ago during the making of Bree's debut album, A Cheap and Evil Girl (Trauma), which featured the wryly-‐scripted, cult hit “David Duchovny (Why Won't You Love Me)”, and Don’s critically praised, The Lonestar Hitchhiker (Universal). ARer completing work on what would have been Bree’s fourth solo release, the duo decided instead to scrap what was mostly a straight-‐forward acoustic album for a sound that incorporated whatever else was lying around the studio. Experimenting with an audio collage that had no restrictions, hi-‐fidelity not being the goal, what grew was a sci-‐fi based, fantasy, retro-‐twang-‐rock, pop-‐folk montage, perfectly highlighted on their debut EP, Robots in Love. Featuring the heart breaking and biting lyrics that Bree has become acclaimed for, and Don’s increasingly unique production and songwriting antics...for which he has been in great demand of late (see Jesse Malin's Love it to Life).
