Hannah Kaminer is an artist and singer-songwriter writing songs about love, loss, and home. Raised in small towns in Western North Carolina, she fuses echoes of Appalachian and country traditions with wistful, Americana-style songwriting. She began studying and performing music in her mid-twenties, and has released two studio albums, Acre by Acre (2015) and Heavy Magnolias (2018).

During 2022 and the first half of 2023, she produced and recorded a third studio album with her band (Hannah & The Wistfuls), which she is working to release in late 2023/early 2024.

Kaminer's songs have been recognized in the finals of the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest (MerleFest), with an NC Regional Artist Project Grant, and by the Brown Bag Songwriting Competition. Kaminer co-produced Heavy Magnolias (2018) 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.
