Hannah vs. the Many


LISTEN to the Single: “Poor Leander”

New York, NY (September 24, 2013) – Following the release of Paper Kingdoms (2010) and All Our Heroes Drank Here (2012), Hannah vs. The Many, led by Brooklyn based singer/songwriter/antiheroine Hannah Fairchild, will release Ghost Stories (EP) – a disc of five songs brought back from the dead — on November 12th, 2013.

Delayed by a series of events — life, hurricanes, and mild poverty— Ghost Stories was initially set for release in the fall of 2012. Over a year later, the five-song EP takes a new look at old songs, accompanied by a new band. The single “Poor Leander,” (so called because of an unrequited love’s self-diagnosed Hero Complex) grew from a wistful hoedown into a sneering psychobilly kiss off, played at three times its original tempo. “Nicollet,” was originally styled after Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne,” but now takes a turn towards Motown.

Fairchild, who is joined by Josh Fox (lead guitar), Daniel Muhlenberg (drums/banter) on Ghost Stories, originally moved to New York City in 2007 expecting to find work and meaning in the city’s seedy underground indie musical theater community, which, as it turns out, doesn’t actually exist. After two years of being rejected by every possible elementary school tour, Hannah said “fuck this” and started writing her own material.

Her lyrics are rooted in her musical theater background, with acerbic, rapid-fire observations that reflect her childhood obsession with Stephen Sondheim. Musically, she bends genres at will, blending influences from Kate Bush to The Replacements to Leslie Gore. Hannah’s songs tell stories of heartbreak, hook-ups, drunken victories, narrow escapes, and all the other “pretty little tragedies” that come with being young and broke in the greatest city in the world.

Look for the release of Ghost Stories on November 12, 2013. Join us for the NYC EP release show at 11 p.m. on November 14 at Cake Shop (152 Ludlow St. NYC 10002).

“…gorgeously jangly, menacing, jazz-tinged powerpop…(All Our Heroes Drank Here is) an early contender for best rock record of 2012.” – New York Music Daily

Vocalist + Trombonist elizabeth! Releases “Brainchildren” 11/1

elizabeth! releases "Brainchildren" November 1st

elizabeth! Releases Brainchildren November 1st

Vocalist, trombonist, and songwriter elizabeth! will release Brainchildren, her debut album of original jazz pop music, on November 1st, 2011.

elizabeth!, who has performed and toured with pop stars like Michael Bolton, jazz musicians like Matt Wilson, and indie rockers like St. Vincent, recorded Brainchildren (Canopy Jazz) in Brooklyn, NY in a single day.

Inspired by travels around the world, the album outlines similarities found in our experiences no matter where we live. “Three” tells the story of a couple deciding to have a child, “Bicycle” reminds a child to enjoy his innocence while it lasts, and “Melting Snow” describes the feeling of rebirth after tragedy. Several songs relate tales of love gained or lost, and the album is rounded out with instrumentals inspired by insomnia, tacos, and a skipping stroll in Memphis.

Brainchildren features Rob Jost (Saturday Night Live, Bjork) on bass and Robert Di Pietro (Norah Jones, Josh Rouse) on drums and special guests include Kiku Collins (Beyonce), Jon Natchez (Beirut), and Mark Erelli (Josh Ritter).

Brainchildren follows elizabeth!’s 2008 release hot & silver, an EP of jazz standards in which she turned classic American songbook tunes like “L-O-V-E” and “Night and Day” into her own creations.

eJazzNews called it “a classy entrance into the world of jazz.” 

The Palo Alto Daily News said “her silky, sultry, elegant vocals enliven standards …elizabeth! gives each tune a few tasty new twists.”

elizabeth! has performed across the United States, Canada, South America, and Europe. Notable venues include: Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, Chicago Theater, Sasquatch Music Festival, Good Morning America, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Today Show, PBS’s Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize broadcast honoring Tina Fey, Bowery Ballroom, Jazz Standard, and Switzerland’s Willisau Jazz Festival. She recently sang at the Yaroslavl Jazz Festival in Russia, and last year spent time teaching trombone in Quito, Ecuador.

She will tour the East and West Coast this fall in support of Brainchildren.

Congratulations to Emily Zuzik for the amazing feature by Laura Cococcia in The Huffington Post today!

Says the author: “Why I love her: she believes in the power of intuition to guide her, adoring her inspirations, but not a slave to the rules of what must define a songwriter. Emily and I had a chance to connect and talk more about the world behind her story. I’m thrilled to share it with you and hope that aspiring musicians — and writers — can visualize the vibrancy in the template she’s created for herself, a true lesson for me in what creativity can look like.”

Right on! Be sure to join us on June 25th at The Living Room to celebrate the release of Zuzik’s The Wild Joys of Living!
