Self-assured yet humble, the adventurous and ambitious singer/songwriter Hanssøn traded the sun and ease of the Australian coast for the intensity and opportunity of New York City.
She would spend her youth on the East Coast of Australia wearing out her MJ cassette tapes, flipping her dad’s Sex Pistols and Johnny Cash records; creating her own world of musical inspiration. “I had a walkman and was pretty introverted growing up in a huge family...I always had my headphones on with family trips or when our grandparents would take us out with MJ on repeat.”
But it was her midnight binging of Rage (Aussie MTV) where she fell in love with bold Australian female artists like The Divynls, Tina Arena and Kylie Minogue who paved the way for her to pursue her dream of writing her own music.
Hanssøn’s modern female influences include Sia, Janelle Monáe, Kimbra, Lilly Allen, Beyonce. “I just feel like sometimes I’m fighting preconceived ideas about what being a woman is, growing up the way we did and when we did. Seeing women completely be in charge of their career is so refreshing.” Like these artists, Hansson's willingness for exposition is refreshing and necessary, drawing on her own experiences of love, loss and the human condition.
Hanssøn has spent the last several years cultivating her craft and carving out a welcomed niche in the New York music scene and will be releasing her mini-album Colours of the Fall, produced by David Sisko this August.
