Hannah Hoffman and the Craft to be at the Dover Free Library
DOVER — On Friday the Dover Free Library presents the musician Hannah Hoffman and the Craft at 7 p.m. Currently in the process of writing her second album, Vermont wood-dweller Hannah Hoffman finds herself consistently inspired by the drastically changing political climate, the continued fight for women's rights, the metallic and ethereal, and the darker side of human nature.
Raised on her parent's extensive collection of music, Hannah was fascinated with everything from Led Zeppelin and Joni Mitchell, to '80s and '90s music icons like The Cure, Tori Amos and Kate Bush. By age 15, Hoffman was writing her own songs and dreaming of bigger and better things. Hoffman started her own band in 2010 with musicians from the What Doth Life collective, and performed her soft, melodically-driven, melodramatic songs with rock instruments. Her experience in a rock band setting inspired her to branch out from her singer/songwriter roots to start writing heavier music that could easily accommodate the sounds of drums or electric guitar.
Hoffman's debut album "Blur" was released in August of 2015, consisting of a collection of songs written from 2008 to 2014. Featuring guitar and bass played by her boyfriend, Graham Brooks (Barishi). The album was recorded by Brian Westbrook of PDP Productions (now Sonic Titan Studios) in Greenfield, Mass. Hoffman has shared the stage with national touring acts Antje Duvekot, Seth Glier, Hayley Reardon and the Kat Wright Band.
