Hanorah is a multidisciplinary artist based out of a small studio filled with cats, canvases, & glittered tape recorders in Montréal’s west end. Influenced by the likes of Etta James and Joni Mitchell, the combination of Hanorah’s powerful voice and the vulnerability of her messaging naturally drew her to soul music. Her 2023 EP ‘Time Waits For No Woman’ was described by the Montréal Guardian "as a poignant rebuttal to the profit-oriented forces that commodify female artists, reducing their worth to their youth [...] the EP stands as a powerful testament to Hanorah’s unwavering resilience and musical prowess."
Following an early record deal, Hanorah released her debut EP ‘For The Good Guys And The Bad Guys’ in 2019. The record amassed over a million streams, won several awards, and helped her tour extensively through Canada and the U.S.. In 2022, Hanorah released her debut album 'Perennial' through Ensoul records. It was featured on radio stations across Canada and received numerous spots on Spotify editorial playlists. Exclaim! Magazine listed the LP as a ‘staff pick’ for 2022 and she performed tracks on the hit Québec TV show Belle et Bum.
A follow-up EP is now in the works.
