As a pianist, composer, singer and storyteller, Hanna Marieke takes the audiences on a journey of transformation and new insights, hidden in poetic metaphors of nature and breath-taking encounters. While her music is introspective and contemplative, Hanna Marieke’s first album in 2019 was received as ‘surprisingly strong and adventurous’ (Nederlands Dagblad).
Her mission is to open people’s eyes towards a new perspective so that they may find hope and see beauty in the midst of the simple mundane and the weary chaos. Hanna tells short stories, sketching real-life situations and paints the environment, thoughts and feelings with her modern jazz compositions.
Inspired by Justin Kauflin, Becca Stevens, Aaron Parks, Mathias Eick, Chopin, Ravel and Scriabin, Hanna writes melodic jazz with a touch of classical and gospel music. Currently, she is working on a new album and storytelling jazz concert that she hopes to release at the end of her Master Studies in 2024.
