Light dancing with shadow, fingers finding answers in the expanse of a keyboard, a voice that shimmers even in its most shattering moments—this is the power of acclaimed pop singer-songwriter Hannah Georgas. Over two full-length albums, 2010’s This is Good and 2012’s self-titled follow-up, she’s traversed a carefully constructed soundscape that never fails to surprise. Georgas has an endless capacity for crafting textured pop songs that confound expectation. She’s as likely to layer luminous, devastating, and witty as she is upbeat, broken, and defiant. This is what makes her music, even at its simplest, so transfixing, something that’s never more evident than on Georgas’ forthcoming release, For Evelyn.

For Evelyn is Hannah Georgas’ third record. Since her debut release, the Toronto-based musician has won numerous awards and racked up multiple nominations, including four Juno nods, for everything from Best New Artist to Songwriter of the Year. Georgas has toured the world, sharing stages with the likes of Kathleen Edwards, City and Colour, and Sara Bareilles, playing everywhere from Madison Square Gardens to the LA Greek Theatre. Georgas’ music has also been featured on HBO’s hit show, Girls.
