Hannah Bethel is a rare artist who blurs genre lines. Her musical artistry is a reflection of who she is: a fierce, independent, wild, free and untamed spirit. Bethel grew up in Houghton, Mich., listening to country and ‘70s rock music. Drawing on influences from Tom Petty, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Willie Nelson, and others, she spent her teenage years traveling and performing across the upper Midwest. Bethel self-released her first record at age 17, and the following year she moved to Nashville. Bethel’s music has been featured on CMT and TCN and she has received critical acclaim from Billboard, The Washington Post, Maverick Magazine, The Boot, Americana Highways and many other outlets.
