During July Hannah visited Indianapolis, Indiana's Harrison Center for the Arts to participate in their songwriter residency program. She had 48 hours to explore and try to understand the city, write a new song about her experience, and then perform it for the Harrison Center's "FoodCon" First Fridays event. You can listen to Hannah's new song "Come Alive" here and read an article about the 48 hour residency here.
