Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, HANNAN is a 5-piece modern rock band that delivers on the promise of solid musical arrangement and catchy, memorable hooks. Founded in 2016, HANNAN hit the ground running, amassing a wealth of original songs that tested musical boundaries while consistently delivering infectious melody lines that so many music fans crave. Hannan’s straight-ahead approach to melodic songwriting and its ability to maintain its musical integrity have enabled them to quickly build a large fan base. It has been these songs that have created the perfect backdrop for seeing HANNAN live. A highly charged and audience-engaging live show filled with a giant sound quickly landed HANNAN direct support opportunities for national acts such as Liliac, Hinder, Trapt, Tony McAlpine, and Thunderstruck, to name but a few. In the winter of 2018, Chet Roberts, guitar player for the multi-award-winning band 3 Doors Down, instantly noticed HANNAN after seeing them perform live. Immediately, Roberts knew he had witnessed something special and expressed his interest in producing HANNAN on their latest release “Charm Offensive.” The five members of HANNAN (Singer Graham Hannan, Guitarists Houston Barnett and Ben Hurst, Bassist Josh Smart, and Drummer Dean DuFresne) hit the studio in April of 2019 and put together six songs of driving, catchy, melodic rock. “Charm Offensive” was officially released in August of 2019, and before the end of the year, over 100 radio stations across the country added “Charm Offensive” to their rotation. Along the way, radio stations, blogs, and music publications all took notice. The EP’s single, “Break Me,” went on to be aired at over 75 radio stations across North America, and the official video was an overnight Vevo hit. Just as momentum started to grow, the COVID-19 pandemic shut the entire music industry down. During the pandemic, HANNAN gained the talents of Dave Muscott and Kris Kerr, who brought new and enthusiastic fire to the group. Fueled by passionate creative ideas and a renewed sense of purpose, HANNAN began the writing process for the follow-up to the “Charm Offensive” EP. In 2022-2023, HANNAN once again teamed up with producer Chet Roberts and began the recording process in Nashville, TN, for the long-awaited full-length album. Set for release in March 2024, the band's latest 11-song offering titled "Last Disguise" takes the band to another level. Upon the completion of recording the new album, HANNAN released four singles with accompanying videos in 2023. “Drive” was the first single to be released from the “Last Disguise” album in the spring of 2023. The video went on to garner over 100 thousand views on the band’s YouTube channel. HANNAN followed up with “Drama Queen” in the summer of 2023 with similar success. The band’s third single, “Long Way Down,” was released in the fall of 2023 and went on to gain over 175 thousand views as well as spent over 10 weeks in the top 20 on the Digital Radio Tracker’s Top 50 Rock Charts, peaking at number 13. The band's fourth and latest single, "Make Up Your Mind," is poised for the same success, if not more, after its release on February 23rd, 2024. Upon reviewing “Last Disguise,” LeoWeekly magazine summed it up by saying, “Last Disguise is everything great about modern rock music. Every one of the 11 tracks on this album is absolutely filled with huge hooks that pull you in and hold you there, then stay with you long afterward.” Perhaps TunedLoud magazine said it best: There has always been a need for bands driven by an intense work ethic, an ability to write hooks every bit as catchy as the best that pop music can offer while throwing in enough riffs to keep the rockers happy. HANNAN is one such band.
Since its release in December of 2023 HANNAN's new single "Long Way Down" has reached #13 on the global digital radio charts.
