Hannah Clemens is on a mission. Her goal: to make anyone within earshot drop what they're doing and listen. Her tools: one guitar, one voice, and a selection of songs so varied in style and content that every performance truly does offer something for everyone.
But then, when your stage name itself is an attempt to win over the skeptical, you're clearly out to prove something. Eschewing the all-too-popular notion that image is everything, Clemens prefers to let the songs she performs as No, Really speak for her. In the case of her first full-length album, Rust, that meant stripped-down recordings that showcase the purity of her voice and the poignancy of her lyrics.
The unlikely tunes in her repertoire include an ode to CCTV cameras, an intergalactic breakup song, and a tune about the fortifying powers of peppermint tea. The ten songs on Rust were tracked in a single day at SCM Recordings in San Diego, California and released online under a Creative Commons license in addition to the usual retail outlets.
With a growing fanbase, plenty of shows on the horizon, and a second album in the works, Clemens is looking forward to increasing her influence while retaining the DIY ethic that has served her so well in the past. It's the only way to keep fulfilling her mission for many years to come.
Want to use these tracks in a commercial project/video?
I have wondered how it was possible that Herod had sworn to give Salome "anything she wanted" after she danced for him (see: Mk 6:21-29). (Salome then asked for the head of John the Baptist).
Now I no longer think that it was so strange.

Wow. She just melt my heart with that fantastic voice. I wake every morning to the song "Molten", because every morning is a new start. The tune just brights up my day.
I wish you all the best, dear artist and will be supporting you in near future, when my financial status will be a bit better. For the moment, I can "only" tell everybody about your great work.
