Hannah Gillespie’s folky credentials go back – way back, to her dad’s genetics that gave birth to a step-sister – the Majors Creek Folk Festival, an ongoing concern that continued in the daily singalongs at the Gillespie family kitchen table.

With her formative musical years wisely misspent in the maelstrom of inner-city life, Hannah Gillespie managed to fine-tune her hedonistic credentials enough to study music business & gained some experience band, stage & tour-managing some of Melbourne’s up & coming acts.

In 2000 she completed formal studies in performance & composition & went on to form the band August, who played at the National Folk Festival.

She finally poured all her yearnings into one album, Growing Up Stupid, under the watchful production eyes of Duncan Lowe and Kevin Nicol. The album reflected a latent jazz aesthetic, but her folk & country gene pool could not be ignored.

Beseiged by her past, she began her second album in 2010, recruiting renowned musician/producer Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, R.E.M, Big Star), and re-enlisting Matt Nightingale on double bass, guitar, mandolin, Kevin Nicol on drums, cousin Ben Gillespie on Trombone, sister Briohny with backup vocals, & Ken Stringfellow himself.

The new album, All The Dirt, has taken her folk and country lineage & run, deep into the territory haunted by the fragile, cracked hearts of Marianne Faithfull and Lucinda Williams.

Embedded in Stringfellow’s famous pop ambience, the country colours of Tony Hunter on banjo, Terry Lee Hale on dobro & the string arrangements of Phil Peterson (Owl City, Nada Surf) subtly frame Hannah's powerful songwriting & distinctive voice. The track 'Just A Man' was sung by mainstream country star Felicity Urquhart in the 2010 Telstra Road to Tamworth Awards, for which Hannah was one of four songwriters in the country to be shortlisted.

With her band shaping up for tours in 2011, she’s finally alchemised it into one sweet libation. Drink deep.
