Hana started performing live in Montana at the age of 14 with just her acoustic guitar. In 2006, at age 16, one of Hana’s performance DVDs reached Evanescence creator and writer Ben Moody. Over the next 18 months – as Hana shuttled between Billings West High School to finish her senior year and Los Angeles to write and record – Ben, Hana, and producer Michael “Fish” Herring crafted her first solo CD. Hana spent the last 7 months of 2008 touring the USA with bands Live, Collective Soul, Blues Traveler, Joshua Radin, Graham Colton, Jon McLaughlin, Ingram Hill, Corey Smith and a 4 song EP from the writing and recording sessions. Hana plans to release the full length CD on July 7, 2009.
