NEW MUSIC: Singer/Songwriter Kristy Hanson's 'Into the Quiet'

Powered by vocal chords of lioness strength, a polished guitar sound, and a sensibility that blends the intimate with the universal, Kristy Hanson's music demands attention and instantly takes listeners in. Hanson grew up in Miami, where she sang in choirs and spent much of her free time writing poems and songs. A self-taught guitarist and a classically trained singer, she studied Vocal Performance at the University of Michigan, where she met her future husband and bassist, Mike Chiaburu. The two played live throughout the Midwest and recorded an EP together, cementing Hanson's decision to move to Los Angeles and pursue her long-held dream of a career in music.

Once in LA, Hanson began collaborating with several gifted musicians, including drummer Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant & Allison Krauss), and engineer Ryan Freeland (Aimee Mann, Ray Lamontagne), both of whom worked on her first release, "Already Gone," which was featured on XM Radio's Radar Report and Clear Channel's NEW! program. In addition to playing locally at well-known venues like The Key Club, the Viper Room, and the Hotel Cafe, Hanson played at venues all over the country during a 20-show tour supporting "Already Gone" in 2008. Honing her skills both on the road and in the studio has paid off, as is evidenced by a growing, loyal fan base and increasing college radio play across the country. Hanson plans to tour with her new, fan-funded album "Into the Quiet" this fall.
