What a voice. Hanorah’s “Long Road” is one of the most mesmerizing, bluesy singles I’ve heard in ages. It’s groovy, and moody, and downright perfect.
The independent singer and songwriter grew up on a range of music, and that shows in the track. She was into Led Zeppelin and The Beatles before she caught on to legendary female vocalists like Etta James, Amy Winehouse, and Joss Stone.
A victim of sexual assault in 2012, she suffered psychological distress until she found help, and she persevered making music thanks to stories from other survivors.
Since then, she’s been making her mark in Montreal and Quebec, playing over 100 shows in one year, making it to the quarterfinals of Quebec’s reality show La Voix, and onto Journal de Montréal’s list of inspiring women in 2018.
