ALL ABOUT HANNI
Past. Present. Future.
Hannah Scholman, better known as HANNI, is mastering her craft. Studying at Music Industry College (MIC), Queensland, she has taken the time to perfect her songwriting skills and evolve her unique production style. Now feeling established and confident, HANNI is claiming her space in music, creating a velvety dreamscape with each song.
Drawing comparisons to trendsetting femmes BENEE, Lennon Stella and Grace, HANNI takes an eclectic range of influences, from Sasha Sloan and Marco to develop her glittery take on pop. With a natural sense of melody and ability to write captivating lyrics that reflect her innate sensibility and authenticity, HANNI’s potential has no limits.
2019 saw HANNI’s indie-electronic debut single “Wired” awarded a Queensland Music Award which celebrates the best new music from across the state. Following the award “Wired” gained attention from peers and fans alike, building its streaming figures above 100,000 plays. In late 2019 HANNI graced ABC’s radio with a live version of “Wired.”
With newfound success and humble confidence, HANNI released her single “Golden Eyes” in 2020 which has amassed over two million plays on Spotify alone. “Golden Eyes” also got a spot on BBC Sound’s playlist The Best New Pop of October 2020. Displaying her unique tone and style, “Golden Eyes” focuses on not seeing the flaws in someone that you love. Reaching acclaim, triple j’s Declan Byrne praised the track, commenting “I reckon it's easier to do big pop anthems, but with this one, Hanni is proving her skills in that restrained and measured pop sound. If she keeps this up there's a big future for her.”
Taking every opportunity as it comes, and spending every possible second in the studio, HANNI has built a repertoire of hook-laden new singles and an EP of big hearted tunes on the horizon. All eyes are on this hard working young Aussie as she looks to take the music industry by a hazy, dreamy storm.
