Hannah Gill: A Different Kind of Sweet Sixteen


While most sixteen year olds look forward to weekends with high school friends, St. Michael’s Hannah Gill is more than likely to be found these days in a recording studio in New York City. Several times a month, Hannah catches the Amtrak to work closely with musician and producer Brad Hammonds for intense rehearsal and recording sessions before climbing back on the train on Sunday evenings.

This unlikely collaboration is the result of a Talbot County friendship between Brad’s father and Hannah’s dad and a desire for the two of them to work together. While Brad might have originally thought this was simply extending a favor to listen to Hannah a few months ago, it didn’t take long for him to realize, like everyone who first hears Hannah sing, this is was not your typical teenager.

The Spy briefly caught up with Hannah at her debut album release event at the Avalon last Thursday night.

The video is approximately two minutes in length
