Hannah Judson | MC & Live Performance

LAFF Music Director

Hannah Judson is an internationally touring American/French singer-songwriter based between Paris France and the San Francisco Bay Area. She performs original indie folk rock songs that draw her audience into lyrically potent narratives constructed with electric guitar and percussive vocals, live looping harmonies and rhythmic layers. Hannah’s vocals are intimate, with a modern folk sound reminiscent of Cat Power, Lucinda Williams, Alanis Morissette and Elliott Smith. Noted as “the real deal” by UK’s country music Maverick Magazine, and “with a style that channels Elliott Smith” by Indie Country fm radio, Hannah has appeared regularly in Paris, throughout Europe and the US west coast.

Hannah Judson’s most recent release of new work reflects a career that spans grunge-era Chicago and post-rock bohemian Paris, France. Her recent EP “Becoming” reflects a shedding of past styles, and creative restraints, that cleared room where both tendencies toward spacious lyrical environments, and straight on rock co-exist in a unified collection. She will be on tour in 2019 to support this record, in Europe in the spring, and on the west coast (USA) in the summer, with a final touch base on the east coast (USA) in the fall.

Influences from both Chicago and Paris geographies are evident in this collection of original songs. Judson’s lyrically motivated songs are couched in confident electric guitar offered by Banjo Bones and soaring leads by Charlie Galunic. Brian Clevinger’s basslines support and counter the melody and Giorgi Khokhobashvili’s blistering jazz violin shows up on several tracks.

Hannah Judson named the EP before Michelle Obama’s book came out. She says, “Becoming is such a great word, straddled with meaning, both verb and adjective, beautiful and in transformation.” Becoming was produced by JL Espada in Sacramento, CA and Fontainebleau, France, and is released on Boneyard Records. She is continuing to work with Espada on her next album (working title “Stingray”) for a late 2019 release.

Hannah Judson is a risky, engaging songwriter, constructing ethereal environments where danger and love combat in free fall. These songs lull the listener comfortably out on a ledge to show the view from there, then offer a little tug when it’s time to come back inside. Judson’s songwriting is rooted by the narrative tradition of Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez and is seamed with references to seminal artists like Liz Phair, Jill Sobule and Neutral Milk Hotel. Using delicate breathy clicks and pops to create percussive tracks, Hannah Judson’s performance is warm, funny, quirky and welcoming. SK Shlomo said “Love this! Dylan meets Martha Wainwright."

Hannah was active on the alternative music scene in Chicago that circled around the School of the Art Institute (where she studied painting and sound) and Wicker Park. In Chicago she was a continuous member of folk, grunge and alt/rock bands, as the songwriter and lead vocalist. She produced and hosted GrrrlsRock events at Beat Kitchen. In 2014 she founded MUSEfest, an international event to support inspirational women in music, film and art. In 2018 she starting working with Boneyard Records in Sacramento, CA. She is currently Director of Music for the LA Fashion Festival (LAFF). She has an MBA in music business from Berklee College of Music/SNHU. She currently performs with Charlie Galunic (Professor at INSEAD) on lead guitar, and Brian Clevinger (Absynth Creator) on bass.

Hannah Judson is originally from Maine, and lives in the Paris Region, France.

Lola Lennox | Special Performance

Lola Lennox is a singer songwriter from London, whose powerful voice resonates through her unique and highly personal songs.

Singing since she was just 8 years old, at 18 Lola attended London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Music, only to withdraw to instead pursue her dream of being a singer songwriter. Inspired by artists like Etta James, Dusty Springfield and Lauryn Hill, Lola connects the feel of old school Soul records into fresh and authentic Pop songs. She has written with some of the world’s greatest songwriters and producers including Eg White (Florence and The Machine, Sam Smith) and Dan Wilson (Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’).

Lola's debut single ‘In The Wild’, co-written and produced by Jon Green tells a story of fantasy and escape amidst a difficult reality. “For me making music has always been a way to translate whatever I am going through in life into something of beauty and meaning- I can turn dust to gold.”

Lola has performed at major venues and events around the world including Vogue’s Fashion Experience Dubai, The Fonda Theatre (supporting Lukas Nelson & The Promise of Real), at Vancouver’s Roger’s Arena and as a backing singer to Annie Lennox on the PBS televised series ‘Great Performances’ at The Orpheum Theatre Los Angeles. In summer 2019, Lola will be featured as the musical voice of the highly anticipated TV series ‘Serengeti’- with music composed by Will Gregory of Goldfrapp. The series will be aired around the world on The Discovery Channel and the BBC.

Now residing in Los Angeles and represented by Simon Fuller, Lola spends her days writing and recording her upcoming debut record. “Making music has always been a way for me to dig deep into myself and the world around me; I found strength in my voice, I found magic through sound, I’ve unpicked the labyrinth of my heart and mind through song- and I cannot wait to share it with you.”
