American-Canadian violinist/singer Hannah Epperson's breadth as a collaborative and compositional powerhouse stems from an eclectic experiential and educational background: from learning Appalachian folk tunes and lore with a cowgirl in Utah to traveling as an improvisational accompanist through Scandinavia; from touring her solo project by sailboat with permaculturists in the Gulf Islands to accompanying Flamenco dancers in Spain; and from receiving an Honours Degree in Human Geography at UBC to representing Canada at World Championships for Ultimate Frisbee in 2015 and 2017.
The multifaceted journeys of this Salt Lake City born musician inform the creative compositions she offers in her solo and collaborative projects. She has contributed string arrangements for live and in-studio productions for innumerable artists, including Fleet Foxes, Ry X, Julianna Barwick and spoken word poet Shane Koyczan. Hannah's unique approach to composition and performance earned her British Columbia's Peak Performance Project award (2013) and a full Juried Sound Recording grant from Factor Canada. After more than 160 solo shows across Europe supporting her albums Upsweep (2016) and Slowdown (2018), Hannah has garnered international recognition as a unique, powerful songwriter whose compositions weave classical emotion together with the raw energy of indie music.

“inimitable intimacy” (Die Zeit)
"melodies of oblique beguiling sorcery and looking-glass narratives of solitary heartache" (Mojo)
“songs designed to bewitch, with piano lines describing deep and romantic arcs while enigmatic lyrics overflow with arresting imagery" (The Crack Magazine)
