Hannah Gill: “Lose”

By: Taylor Wallace

Among the many reasons to be impressed by the supremely talented Hannah Gill is her age vs. the indisputable maturity of her songwriting and vocal style. At just 20-years-old, she has a precocious understanding for the smooth, velvety sounds of songstresses from eras before, and her ability to deliver on the same caliber as many of her predecessors is uncanny. Harnessing a sound that would make Amy Winehouse and Etta James swoon, her sound carefully plucks from the bushes of blues, soul, and 70s pop and arranges them into a bouquet of sultry, buttery sounds that flow like warm molasses embracing your soul. “Lose” encompasses all of these elements, fitting them to a slow, smooth 3/4 time template that sits somewhere between doo-wop sounds of the 50s and soul vibes of the 70s. To say it’s simply lovely would be an understatement; more accurately, it’s absolutely intoxicating.

“Lose” appears on the Lost in Words EP, out now via Footnote.
