Bio 


You enter the joint. You cast your eyes and tune your ears to the sight and sound of Hannah Macklin & The Maxwells - beginning with their vivacious, curvaceous ringleader. Echoing nostalgic shades of Aretha Franklin and Donny Hathaway with a futuristic nod to Bjork and Janelle Monae is the voice of the exuberant and always animated Hannah Macklin. Soaring, sweet, scratchy or smooth, her vocals stun, and her infectious stage presence crawls under your skin like the very best kind of goosebumps. Hannah is flanked by a sharply-dressed crew of Maxwells.

Hannah Macklin & The Maxwells deliver smart, sassy tunes with a high risk factor - they teeter on the edge of old-school soul and new alternative pop. You'll feel like you've been zapped into the past to a rowdy blues bar hotspot, or an underground funk club surrounded by a cloudy haze, or a 50s-style diner doing the lindy-hop on checkered floorboards. Then snap! Mod turns to ultra-modern, and you're thrust into the future. Unique songwriting, wacky riffs and clever, poetic lyrics are all hip to the music of today, and beyond. 'That perfect blend of old and new comes together like peanut butter and honey on toast.' (Scene Magazine.)

Recent winners in the YouBloom International Songwriting Competition, Hannah Macklin & The Maxwells have received much attention since their formation in early 2010, playing alongside some of Australia's freshest musical offerings, including Ray Mann, The Rescue Ships, Pear & The Awkward Orchestra and Emma Dean - and, in their first ever show, supported the incredible Katie Noonan to a sold-out audience at The Globe.

REAL WORLD is their debut release. In this thirteen-track-treat, sunny soul meets dashes of rock 'n' roll, funk and r&b, all laden with alternative pop hooks and sparkling production. Larger-than-life metaphors are used to describe elements of Hannah's real world; lyrically, the album is a sojourn through imperfect love, imaginary lust, life lessons learned through the eyes of earthworms and tales of overseas tapestries. Old-school nostalgia and new-school curiosity are equal forces in Hannah's Real World - of which she would very much like you to be a part.
