Hannah Cameron - Blow My House Down
You know how there are points in your life where you’ve heard an album and been astounded at how ridiculously relatable it is to your life at that current point in time? How you didn’t know how much you needed to hear the album until you heard it? The most recent case of this for me has been Hannah Cameron’s Blow My House Down.
Hannah Cameron is a Melbourne singer-songwriter, who has a wealth of accomplishments under her belt. After receiving James Morrison’s prestigious Generations in Jazz Scholarship in 2013, she has gone on to create a name for herself through her stunningly intimate original work.
Blow My House Down is Hannah Cameron’s debut album, and it features the exceptional musicianship of long-time collaborators James Gilligan, Leigh Fisher, and Kieran Hensey. Throughout the album, Hannah effortlessly draws in her listeners, guiding them through intricate storytelling. Her music is weaved with tales of intimacy and vulnerability, penned in the most honest, yet subtle of ways. Her diverse influences are evident, as her sound distinctly draws upon a blend of her jazz roots and folk artistry. Both harmonically and rhythmically complex, Hannah Cameron’s work is one of incredible musicianship.
Some personal highlights of the album are The Mighty Fall, My Inspirer, and Recall, all beautifully crafted. Hannah Cameron now has her second album in the works, and I can’t wait to wrap my ears around it!
