Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ I have a cool new interview with Hannah Michaels to show y’all. If you missed the first blog post that Hannah was featured in, you can check it out here: Monday Memos: Hannah Michaels. Also, if you haven’t checked out Hannah’s music video for her new single entitled I’m Not Runnin’, then please check it out below (spoiler alert, it’s AWESOME!). In this interview we’re going to discuss Hannah’s music, influences, where she sees herself in the future, and so much more. I am so excited that we’re all getting the opportunity to get to know Hannah better, because she is definitely a star on the rise! In fact, she is currently working on new music with Steven Solomon, who co-wrote and produced Sabrina Carpenter’s (from the Disney Channel hit show Girl Meets World), new single, We’ll Be The Stars, which was recently released through Disney/Hollywood Records. So if y’all are ready let’s dive into the interview!
Celinda: Hi Hannah. So to start off, how would you describe your sound?
Hannah: Hi. My sound is somewhat pop alternative, but I have a large interest in exploring, shaping, and expanding my sound. I wouldn’t consider it completely categorized or completed yet.
Celinda: So, what/who inspired you to pursue a career in music?
Hannah: I have always been in love with music, but growing up my older brother majorly inspired me, as he is also a very passionate musician.
Celinda: Very cool, so was there a specific moment that you knew that you wanted to become an entertainer?
Hannah: I have always known that I wanted to pursue music, but there have definitely been moments performing for my close friends and writing music that have continued to inspire me.
Celinda: What artists/bands have inspired your music, that might surprise fans?
Hannah: Well, Sara Bareilles, Karen O, Ingrid Michaelson, and Norah Jones are all huge inspirations to me as a writer and a musician.
Celinda: I can definitely see those inspirations in your stylizing. So what was it about I’m Not Runnin, that made you want to release it as your debut single?
Hannah: Jay and Rachel worked on it with me, and they are extremely talented writers. Also, I think that the song is very powerful and a pleasant lighthearted song that I saw a lot of potential in.
Celinda: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Hannah: In 10 years I hope that I will have shaped myself as a musician and as a writer, and that I will be continuing to pursue music.
