Own and traditional
Hannah Peel has a somewhat fragile voice. The Broken Wave is mostly folkie—contemporary and traditional, but her work since then has veered more toward pop. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
The Broken Wave is the only one we've heard
The Broken Wave
2011—Static Caravan—VAN 22
Recommended for contemporary folk fans
Hannah Peel—vocals, piano, synths, The Music Box, trombone, violin, zither lap harp, string arrangement (2)
Mike Lindsay—guitars, electric sax, bass, vocals, dulcimer, percussion, knee slaps
This album is a little uneven but has a couple of great tracks, and her traditional covers are interesting. My favourites here are the neo-traditional "The Almond Tree" and the folkie "Don't Kiss the Broken One." (Neile)
