The Hannah James Trio Short Info

"When Hannah James gets on a stage she turns a few heads. She's a slender, twenty-something blonde with dark, hypnotic eyes and a vivacious smile and she handles a bass like a commando handles an assault rifle.”
- Time Out Sydney, March 2012

The Hannah James Trio is the exciting young Australian group led by Award winning Double Bassist Hannah James. Presenting a fresh and vibrant sound, the trio embraces the concepts of modern jazz filtered through their distinctly Australian lens. Combining shifting time signatures, souring melodies and changing textures the trio has a passion and energy on stage that is captivating Australian audiences.

Hannah was the 2011 recipient of the Jann Rutherford Award for Women in Jazz. In the space of three short years, she has been invited to lead her trio and quintet at numerous major Australian festivals including the prestigious Wangaratta Jazz Festival, The Sydney Women's International Jazz Festival, the Jazz Groove Festival, and the Canberra Capitol Jazz Project as well as undertaking countless performances at venues across Australia. She was invited to recorded her debut CD at the ABC studios and recently released her second album ‘Triliphony’ with the support of APRA Australia and the Sydney Improvised Music Association.
