In the three years since her debut release Overflow, singer/songwriter Hannah Kerr has walked through a formative season, navigating college and young adulthood and the challenges that coincide with figuring out who you really are. The road has not always been easy, but on the other side, Hannah seems to have found her voice.
“I feel like God really grew me so much as a human being, not just as an artist,” says Hannah, reflecting on the last four years she spent at Belmont University where she received a degree in Christian Leadership in May of 2019. “I understood more about him, I understood more about myself and went deeper into my faith in a way that I hadn’t before.”
Overflow, which Hannah released when she was just 19 years old, was a strong debut, including radio hits like “Warrior” and ASCAP Christian Award-winning “Your Love Defends Me,” co-written with Matt Maher. With the successful release of her Christmas album soon after, you got the sense that Hannah Kerr was not an up-and-coming artist, but rather an artist who had already up and come. But Hannah had more growing to do—a process she chronicled through her songwriting on her 2019 EP, Listen More. The result is an EP that is genuine, honest and vulnerable with a new, fresh sound that’s a little more pop, a little more worship, a little more Hannah.
“I feel like I now know what I want to sound like, who I am as an artist, and I’m excited to share that with people,” says Hannah.
“Vulnerability comes with being more confident in who I am and being more confident in who God is,” says Hannah, “that God can handle the messy parts of me, and God can handle all of me. I don’t just have to show him the best parts or the pretty parts, but I can show him everything.”
Being where she is, growing into who she is, the release of more music will reintroduce Hannah as an artist who has grown and who has rooted more deeply into her sound, her voice and her purpose. It is truly a new chapter for Hannah as an artist and as a person, and now listeners will get to come on the journey where, in her words, she is “figuring out who God is, and in the process, really figuring out who I am.”
