Jiliana Barwick has said that her music is influenced by her participation in church choir while growing up in Louisiana. She composes with a machine to create electronic loops built around her vocalizing.
She self-released her debut EP, Sanguine, in 2006. The songs are wordless with vocal overdubs, vocal percussion, and improvisation. On the EP Florine, she uses a loop station and pedals to create minimalist repetition accompanied by layers of vocals and synthesizers. In 2010, Barwick was commissioned to remix “Reckoner” by Radiohead. During the next year, she released an album of improvisational music with Ikue Mori.
She recorded her first full-length album The Magic Place on a rehearsal stage because it was sound proof and because it had a piano. The title of the album refers to a tree on her family’s farm that was big enough to crawl into, as though the tree contained rooms shaped by the trunk and branches. In 2012, she formed the duo Ombre with Helado Negro and recorded the album Believe You Me.
The title of her second album, Nepenthe, was inspired by the death of a relative. The name comes from the drug of forgetfulness found in ancient Greek literature and the work of Edgar Allan Poe. The album features the string ensemble Amiina and a choir of teenage girls.
In 2016, the song “Nebula”, from her third album Will premiered on NPR. A music video directed by Derrick Belcham was shot at the historic Philip Johnson Glass House.
On December 20th, 2019 she released her fourth album Circumstance Synthesis.
Hanna Haas is a songwriter drawn to the dance of light and dark. Currently based in Portland Oregon, she has come to call the entire West Coast her home. Hanna describes her music as “contemplative folk,” identifying with artists Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, and Feist for their alternate tunings and mesmerizing melodies. Inspired by environments in which she has inhabited, Hanna sings of the dramatic landscape of Big Sur, the California sun, and the vast and open Pacific Northwest sky. Hanna loves to engage her audiences in sweet story telling and laughter, leaving her audience in a state of heart-felt introspection.
Hanna has played countless shows in Portland, OR and has become a part of the close knit community of West Coast artists. Hanna toured internationally with Blue House Music Agency which manages artists such as The Shook Twins John Craigie, Marty O’Reilly, Jeffrey Martin, Anna Tivel, and several others. Hanna is currently finishing recording her debut album out in 2020.
