Hannah Kaminer is a folk/Americana artist based in Asheville, NC. Raised in small towns in western North Carolina, she fuses echoes of Appalachian traditions with wistful, Americana-style songwriting.

Kaminer's songs have been recognized in the finals of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest (MerleFest 2019), with a Regional Artist Project Grant from a coalition of NC arts councils, and by Asheville's Brown Bag Songwriting Competition (winning grand prize and crowd favorite). 

Kaminer has released two studio albums, Acre by Acre (2015) and Heavy Magnolias (2018). Kaminer co-produced Heavy Magnolias with award-winning engineer Julian Dreyer. In 2020, she pivoted to produce Music for Quarantine, connecting musicians to virtual gigs performed for loved ones in isolation. 

As of winter 2022, Kaminer is working on a new album with her band (Hannah & The Wistfuls), to be released in 2023
