Hannah K Watson
Hannah K has been rockin’ the violin since the age of ten and singing since 2004. Being classically trained, it's only natural she acquired a fondness for folk, metal and jazz music during her experimentive years at Columbia College Chicago, where she earned her Bachelors in Music Composition in 2012.
She nurtures her classical roots through The Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, with whom she's been a member since 2008, and embraces her inner wild child as the fiddler and lead singer for local country cover band Suburban Cowboys. She is also the co-founder of local string group Chicago Street Strings and performs with a multitude of other bands, various groups, and accompanies wedding ceremonies on the regular.
Hannah has earned a skillful reputation both in the studio and on the stage - In addition to her exemplary ear, she is fluent in a wide scope of genres including classical, folk, chamber, blues, improvisation, pop, modern and has an extensive repertoire of country and rock tunes under her singing belt. Hannah has also written music for numerous independent theatre productions in Chicago.
When she’s not busy playing and singing her hiney off on stage in the late hours of the evening, she can be found dilligently writing and recording new original material in her home studio.
