HANNAH ELSIE CHAPMAN
http://www.soundcloud.com/hannahelsiechapman

Known for her multi-faceted artistic expression and fearless individuality, emerging musician, photographer and actress Hanna Elsie Chapman is just as likely to capture imagery through her lens and jump into character as she is to compose a piece of music. Angelic and hypnotic, bold and melodic… Chapman challenges her listeners to see ones vulnerability in lifes fleeting moments . “I am always absorbed in some medium of person-to-person communication. Striving for artistic expression is like burning into nothingness during atmosphere re-entry; vulnerable, risky, terrifying and necessary” says Chapman. Make sure to arrive in time to see Hannah kick the night off at 8:30!

Hannah Elsie Chapman – Piano, Vocals
Neal Chapman – Guitar
