Streaming/Download Link In today's society, there is so much pressure to have someone to spend your life with. Some of us go through the thought that we will end up alone or that we will never find anyone. “Hannah” lays out some of the steps that were taken in order for this person to accept living their life alone. The song tells the story of a young woman, starting at the age of 26, who goes through the trials and tribulations of figuring out her own love story, with lyrics telling the sad truth that Hannah thinks may become her fate, “Hannah grew immune to all the victims that would pass through her duvet / Resorting to the classic “boys are stupid” the excuses justified mistakes she knew just how to make / Hannah made her mind up years ago she wouldn’t mind a life alone / Complications of misfortunate accounts of almost finding love for comfort we’re a bit too close.”
While the verses highlight struggles with the balance of longing for someone and the peace of a life alone, the chorus is very uplifting. Mason reassures Hannah that her “life will wait” for her, and that Vienna will also be there in the future for her when she figures out what she needs and wants. Leah’s vocal performance, paired with this incredible storyline, are sure to captivate any listener’s heart and soul. “Hannah” tells about the beauty and grace there is for waiting on the perfect person and the right timing that we all sometimes forget.
In juxtaposition to the lyrics, the bubbly tune to the song makes it seem as though the story has a happy ending. The guitar gives a happy vibe by having a catchy riff throughout the whole song. When the kick drum comes in, it gives the feel that we see a lot of new up-and-coming country artists. Leah Marie Mason is just what country music needs, providing a perfect combination of fresh ideas while still telling a heart-touching story.
Leah Marie Mason never tries to be perfect. Instead, the North Carolina-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and artist allows her edges to frame an intimate and infectious brand of country that could resonate from a small town to the top of a big city. By doing so, she energizes the genre with universal pop appeal. By the age of eleven, Leah started performing in a classic rock band with her older brother, belting out Heart and Pat Benatar covers. After a year at Berklee College of Music, she transferred to Belmont University in Nashville. Inspired by everything from the classic songwriting of George Strait, bluegrass of The Steeldrivers, and 21st century vibes of Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, she spent countless hours writing and honed a sharp signature style, resulting in her debut single “Far Boy.” Taking the reins of her career, Leah watched YouTube tutorials about uploading media to Spotify, outsourced cover art, and finally decided to launch a TikTok page to promote “Far Boy.” The song played over a video captioned, “I called my ex to hang out so he could listen to this song I wrote about him,” and it organically exploded with 13 million views. Leah Marie Mason may have just broken out onto the scene this year with her viral TikTokthat tugged at heartstrings (over 13 million, to be exact), but she has the poise and skill of a seasoned artist. The Nashville-based singer, who recently caught the attention and approval of Dan + Shay for her Facebook cover of their song “From the Ground Up” is cementing herself as a true changemaker in the industry. Her “Far Boy” duet with Austin Burke debuted on Taste of Country and her latest collaboration with breakout star Kidd G on “Love Isn’t Real” was featured on numerous editorial playlists on release week including the prestigious “Women of Country” Spotify playlist. Leah featured her latest single “I Wish” in a TikTok that has now gained over 1.9M views and the song has garnered over 200,000 streams in just over 3 weeks.
