Hannah Frank Group features Hannah Frank (guitar/vocals) and a combination of: Meg Thomas presiding over percussion, Victor Sanders on the jaw-dropping talking tone guitar, Ben E. Miller on bass, Adela Zo on the multi-faceted cello, and special guests. The rootsy, yet progressive style reflects rhythms and tones of a variety of influences, all centered around Americana storytelling. Hannah’s more recent influences of jazz and soul music make this music sculpted and angelic as well as raw and powerful. Her poetic lyrics are the crux of the matter.
Hannah Frank Group has performed at Chicago venues ranging from House of Blues and Mayne Stage to listening rooms like Uncommon Ground and festivals including Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest and Bucktown Garden Walk. In the 2000-teens, many shows Hannah Frank Group were a part of were presented by Chicago Acoustic Underground, including the popular “Singing for Your Supper” songwriter showcase as well as songwriter showcases at venues, conferences and recording studios. Various formats of the group have also presented “Tangled Up in Blues” a show including songs by Dylan as well as traditional blues material. The group has been featured on WLUW, WDCB and Chicago Music Guide; and in the Chicago Independent Songwriter Festival.
