“Say It Now“ is Hannah’s lone release for 2022, but keep an eye out for an as-yet-to-be-titled full length LP, due out sometime in 2023. It follows the single “All My Time Is Wasted” and What Is Going On?, her acclaimed debut EP, both released in 2021.
Hailing from Mesquite, Texas and now residing in New York, the 20 year-old recorded and produced her early music all through her iPhone 7, using Garageband iOS, an iRig, microphone, and guitar. The resourcefulness paid off, earning Hannah early praise for her What Is Going On? and its prerelease singles. NPR Music said this, “Just glorious. Her voice, the production, these sweet reflective melodies. Just all works so well together.”
Since the release of What Is Going On?, Hannah toured steadily, playing shows and winning over audiences across the US and Europe, opening for the likes of the aforementioned Webster, Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing, Ritt Momney, Wet, Metronomy and Arlo Parks. Earlier this summer, Hannah also performed at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival in July.
What Is Going On?, “All My Time Is Wasted,” and “Say it Now” are available now from Sub Pop.
What people are saying about Hannah Jadagu:
“The New York via Texas transplant sings of trying to find her way in a myriad of inflection points in her life and in society. Whether it is racial and gender equality (“My Bones”), the crush of any given day (“Sundown”), or romantic tribulations (“What Is Going On?”), Jadagu wraps her concerns in shimmery layers of off-center pop frosting.” [What Is Going On?] - Under the Radar
“When immersed in the raw beauty of Hannah Jadagu’s SubPop debut EP, What is Going On?, many things spring to mind. How does she build such nuanced melodic tension with her lyrics? How does she write such introspectively brilliant lyrics?” - Ones to Watch
“Jadagu’s songs have an inherently chill quality that feel almost effortless.” [What Is Going On?] - Dallas Observer
“The songs of her debut EP, What Is Going On?, were all written and recorded through her mobile phone, yet despite her limited resources, the songs sound lush, and perfectly formed, showing what can be done if you find a method that works for you.” - For the Rabbits
