Radio Starmaker Fund Annual Report

2017 / 2018

Artist Profile: Hannah Georgas

Hannah Georgas

Since my debut EP in 2009, I have grown from a regionally based artist who played smaller showcase venues to an artist who tours across Canada, the US, UK, and key European territories like Germany and the Netherlands. I've performed in all territories on festival bills as a headliner and high-profile support slots in larger venues with acts like Sara Bareilles, City and Colour, Boy and Bear and more. I have been fortunate enough to win numerous awards and rack up multiple nominations, including three Polaris nominations and four JUNO nods, for everything from Best New Artist to Songwriter of the Year.

I saw the benefits of Starmaker when I released my third album For Evelyn in 2016 and returned back to Europe and the UK on a headlining run. I received extremely positive reviews for my performances from Consequence of Sound, Spill Magazine, and The Telegraph UK and was filling all of the venues I returned to after my last release in 2012.

The single “Don't Go” debuted at #1 on CBC Radio 2 as well CBC Radio Radio 3 and received love from Canadian Alternative Rock Radio. It also received widespread appreciation with Australian audiences, achieving national airplay on Triple J and community radio. For Evelyn has earned millions of plays on all streaming services and has received critical praise from publications like NPR, The Boston Globe and The Sunday Times.

The Radio Starmaker Fund made it possible for me to maintain my touring presence domestically and internationally, nurture my fan base and tour with the high calibre musicians in my band. I was also able to undertake campaigns at supporting radio stations and secure hard to get promotional and interview slots. Radio Starmaker has played a significant role in helping me succeed and I'm extremely thankful for all of their support!
