Hannah and Rachel sit down with another Hannah to talk about her Band Hannah Jay and the Hideaways.
Three-time Wammie Award nominee and DC Americana/folk favorite Hannah Jaye and The Hideaways released their highly anticipated self-titled full-length debut album on February 28, 2020. DC music journalist Rudi Greenberg from The Washington Post described the new “self-titled record [as] showcas[ing] the band’s high-energy folk-rock and Takoma Park native Hannah Jaye’s soaring vocals.”
Hannah Jaye and the Hideaways are steeped in the folk storytelling tradition, creating an artful fusion of rootsy acoustic Americana, folk and country music while weaving compelling contemporary musical narratives that speak to the challenging day-to-day realities of the millennial experience.
Since forming in March 2018, the band—which includes multi-instrumentalist Giacomo Fornasini (mandolin and harmonica), fiddle player Rebecca Weiss, banjo player Shannon Orcutt, and bassist Greg Mulley—has performed over 80 shows at DC-area venues such as Union Stage, Songbyrd, Gypsy Sally’s, Big Bear Café, Hill Country Live and the legendary DIVE, where budding stars from Bonnie Raitt and Al Green to the Ramones have held court. The group has also played at numerous local festivals, including in 2019 alone at the Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, HERA Festival, and Takoma Park Folk Festival.
