Copenhagen based singer and musician Hannah Schneider grew up in a family of classical musicians, and naturally started to play both the piano and the violin at age five. The love for her piano soon turned into a great fascination of small synths and keyboards, and inspired Hannah to start composing at the age of 13.Since then she has written songs, gone to the conservatory in Copenhagen, and performed in various constellations all over Europe.
In 2009 she was signed to Mermaid Records/Sony BMG, and the self titled debut album came out in September 2009. It was well received both by the radio and the press, who called Hannah “a rarely skilled pop songwriter, who manages to put herself at stake” and predicted her international success.
Hannah has co- written songs with many internationally acclaimed songwriters, such as Jeff Cohen (Teitur, Macy Gray), Itaal Shuur (Jewel, Maxwell) and Kim Richey, with whom she wrote the song “The Absence of Your Company” that was featured on Grey’s Anatomy.
Inspired by the great number of interesting current Scandinavian artists like Lykke Li, Jenny Wilson and Stina Nordenstam, Hannah Schneider creates melancholic and playful pop, crafted with a love for the singer/songwriter tradition and a fascination with electronic sounds and samples.
