Hannah Glavor and the Family Band

Oct. 11, Flying M Coffeegarage


After her 2012 debut EP, Portland, Ore.-based Hannah Glavor enlisted her Family Band on a full-time basis and her self-released 2013 EP, Halcyon, reveals how well the tight-knit group works. Tender, haunting tracks highlight exceptional harmonizing, illustrating how Glavor can go from full voice to falsetto in the blink of an eye. Banjo and guitar often carry Glavor's tales across insistent beats, and there's a whispery quality to her voice that begs the listener to lean in so as not to miss a word. Given the darling band photos at, there's something quite sweet about Glavor and her Family Band, but anyone who can harmonize like Glavor shouldn't be underestimated.
