Hanna Kristall is an Austrian born singer with Mexican and Polish roots, who is commuting between Berlin, New York, Los Angeles and Vienna. After her first pop/funk - album 'Lady Mechanic' she surprises with a new sound: electropop. Together with her producer, a sound artist based in Berlin, she is developing her sonic identity, currently fusioning electronical sounds with her versatile voice. A voice that is being described as emotion-awakening, embodying the depth of soul, the lightness of pop and the in-your-face-attitude of rap. Her latest single u know is a trap song: bass heavy, spherical and a little bit dark. The track is strongly reminiscent of some songs from The Weeknd and feels a bit like after hours in the club. 

Hanna Kristall started her musical path in the pulsating city of LA with the recording of her debut album ‘Lady Mechanic’ in 2017. She got it produced by Stacey Lamont Sydnor, drummer and producer, who works with the likes of Missy Elliott, Stevie Wonder and The Jacksons and first played her album live at the legendary "Viper Room" on Sunset Strip. Back in Vienna she took her music on stage at the Donauinselfest, Europe’s largest open-air music festival, where she started making her name as an energy charged live performer.

 

Strongly inspired by LA’s music scene she felt like her musical identity had only started to awaken and went on to work with producer Daniel Karelly, who she desired to work with ever since she saw him performing at a festival with his then-band 'Rakede'. Their encounter turned out to be a 'one-in-a-lifetime moment' for the artist. Ever since she dived into a timeless artistic journey, crafting her sonic voice and giving each song time and space to develop on its own pace. 

 

Hanna is currently travelling, writing and working on her music. She is expected to release her EP in 2024.
