JESSE & HANNAH
Jesse & Hannah are the hottest country duo in the wild west of Oz. Think Cher meets John Wayne or Perth’s answer to Johnny Cash and June Carter - just don’t ask them to play any of the iconic duo’s hits.
Theirs is a modern-day love story born from a mutual adoration for tunes of times past. The couple met one night at Clancy’s back in 2010 whilst playing in separate bands and have been performing together all around Australia ever since their serendipitous meeting.
The man on guitar, that’s Jesse Woodward, a self-taught musician with a savant like ability to pick up any instrument and just know how it works. He cut his musical chops playing with the Ten Cent Shooters, Abbe May, Ruby Boots, James Teague, the Big Old Bears and the Justin Walshe Folk Machine. Supporting acclaimed acts such as C.W. Stoneking, Lindi Ortega, Joe Pug, The Reverend Horton Heat and Justin Townes Earle, to name a few. Jesse’s talents make him a sought-after session musician, which was acknowledged through a nomination for Instrumentalist of the Year at the Western Australian Music Awards.
Hannah Blass is a darling vintage belle with a voice sweet like honey and a range as broad as Patsy Cline. Her musical career began singing vocals for the absorbent stylings of Rockabilly band, Love Sponge. Don’t be fooled by her country charm, this dame’s preferred musical weapon of choice is the impressive double bass which she ain’t afraid to slap around.
Jesse & Hannah’s extensive repertoire includes Country & Western, Rock & Blues, Jazz & Rag-time music from all of last century up until their
modern-day compositions. This dynamic, in-demand duo delivers a classic yet contemporary, old time sound suitable for any/every occasion.
Versatility makes Jesse & Hannah the perfect rodeo partner at pubs, bars and dance parties, corporate and community events, hoedowns, wedding receptions, and all sorts of private occasions that they can tailor their sound to.
It's super fun, toe-tapping music for all ages, that is sure to have your guests burning up the dance floor at your next event.
