Juno-nominated songstress Hannah Georgas has released a beautifully recorded 4-song EP in celebration of International Women’s Day. Produced by Dan Molad, Imprints is a collection of covers by influential women and features music by The Cranberries, Eurythmics, Janet Jackson and Tegan and Sara and is available via all DSPs.
Says Hannah regarding the inspiration behind the EP, “While I was working on my own new material last year I wanted to take the opportunity to record some of my favourite female artists that have inspired me throughout my life. All of these artists in their own way encouraged and helped me get through some challenging times. How these artists expressed themselves or conveyed an energy really moved me and shaped the way I listen and write music. There were many female artists I listened to growing up that I think subconsciously gave me the courage to follow my path even when there were many factors playing against me. I thought it would be special to acknowledge that and also show my respect to other artists making music too.”
Georgas’ last studio album, For Evelyn, enjoyed widespread acclaim including NOW Magazine (4/5), Exclaim! Magazine (8/10), Q Magazine (8/10), Boston Globe, NPR Music and more. Since her debut in 2009, Georgas has released three full-length albums including This is Good (2010) and Hannah Georgas (2012), toured alongside Sara Bareilles, Kathleen Edwards and City and Colour, and has had her music featured on HBO’s hit show, Girls. She has won numerous awards and racked up multiple nominations, including four JUNO nods, for everything from Best New Artist to Songwriter of the Year. Her self-titled album received widespread critical praise, including notice at NPR Music, Mojo, the Vancouver Weekly and The Huffington Post, which called her “phenomenal.”
