Hannah Aldridge is an Americana/ Folk artist originally from Muscle Shoals, Al. She is the daughter of the #1 hit songwriter and Alabama Music Hall of Fame inductee, Walt Aldridge, who has written and produced for such artist as Lou Reed, Reba McEntire, and Conway Twitty and has been named songwriter of the year twice by illboard.
When Hannah Aldridge released her first album Razor Wire« in 2014, she was described as Muscle Shoals’ own Americana Princess. With the new, much anticipated album she’s definitely claiming the throne as the Americana Queen of Muscle Shoals! The follow up, Gold Rush has a distinct rock edge making the 10 tracks explode with energy, sweat and pride. A uncompromising and confident attitude shines throughout the whole album. In literature and in songwriting, the American South is where writers go to face their fears. Hannah Aldridge doesn’t just dip her pen into the well of the South, the Muscle Shoals native embodies it. Mixing her personal life and the sounds of her hometown, Hannah Aldridge’s new album also draws in influences from across the rock genre. Working with people with one foot in country music and one foot in rock, Hannah Aldridge makes a fresh kind of Southern Rock styled by Southern Gothic storytelling.
The boys from Wales will be opening for Hannah as well as backing her for her set. The Goat Roper Rodeo Band play vivid, compelling and soulful cosmic country blues; and when they let rip on songs such as Don’t Believe You, they are just dazzling.
