Ask me who I are...

Nightmares, loneliness and dark desires are the driving forces behind the sound and world of Hana Piranha. Hana Maria, the daughter of a Catholic priest, was born during a hurricane; a prophetic beginning to the diary that’s exposed in her turbulent and often disturbing songwriting. The singer and multi-instrumentalist grew up in Wellington, New Zealand, moving to England at the age of twelve to pursue her dream of becoming a concert violinist. Disillusioned with the world of classical music, she began pushing boundaries both in art and in life - the two becoming so intertwined that it became hard to know where one began and the other ended. To Hana Piranha, life is nothing but an opportunity to create art, which is why she opens her diary so candidly to the world. Hana Piranha are signed to Not Saints, a sober recovery record label dedicated to those seeking a life free from drug and alcohol addiction. Hana Piranha are: Hana Piranha, Jim Beck, Mishkin Fitzgerald and Andrew Lane ​ "The musical grit and nastiness provided by the full-throated guitars is just a backdrop for the startlingly dark lyrics." For Us Not Them ​ “The combination of beefy rock riffs, razor sharp violin licks and a drawled, snarly vocal that Juliette Lewis would kill for is not one to be ignored” Listen With Monger ​                   “If Jimi Hendrix had played the violin this is how he would have sounded” Blues in Britain
