Jeff Hanson

Some people find Jeff Hanson's voice disarming, alarming, putting-off, and generally girly. I know you've heard him by now, he seems to be the curious sideshow in the always happening indie world.

Well, Jeff Hanson does sing like a girl and I find it endearing. His second self-titled album was released earlier in the year on, you guessed it, Kill Rock Stars Records. His first album, Son was released a year or two ago. They're both very simple voice-and-guitar CDs but very melody driven. His voice takes the center stage of all songs due to it's uniqueness. He uses it to its greatest advantage and comes off as a talented songwriter a stone's throw away from the rest of that crowd.

Nice post. You're right, it's kinda disturbing if you dwell too long on the fact that it is, in fact, a man singing. But we all imagine singers to look like what we hear (hard to explain, but true), so you can just imagine this guy as a hot indie chick if it makes it easier to stomach. Being a girl, it doesn't bother me that his voice is girly. Thanks again for the post. - Mallie
