Hannah McGinn grew up in Dublin and began writing music at 17. Characterized by a mellow vocal accompanied by a soft cascade of finger picked acoustic guitar, a stripped-back live performance style serves as the catalyst for Hannah’s honest lyrical style. Inspired by the minimalist folk aesthetics of Adrianne Lenker, and Leith Ross, while also channeling strong elements of Tascam 4-track era Elliot Smith, Hannah is set to join Dublin’s long list of captivating and honest songwriters.
