Hannah Georgas: Easy

By Kerry Doole

Hannah Georgas: Easy (Arts & Crafts): This indie-pop singer/songwriter has earned four Juno nominations, three Polaris Music Prize nods, and international critical acclaim for three earlier full-length albums. A new release, All That Emotion, comes out on Sept. 4, and the presence of The National’s Aaron Dessner in the production chair is sure to bring it added attention, given that Dessner helmed Taylor Swift's latest LP folklore


Easy is the final advance single from the album. The reflective tune features a gently repetitive beat, atop which her pristine voice shines brightly. 

In a label press release, Georgas describes the origin of the song: “I was going through a break up around the time that I wrote Easy and I felt like I kept searching for some sort of closure or definitive ending to the relationship. I found myself feeling frustrated that I couldn’t communicate well with this person and whenever I tried to reach out I was left feeling more alone in the end. I was going through this hard time and it felt like they found it easy to let it go.”

Georgas began creating All That Emotion about a year after the release of her celebrated 2016 album For Evelyn by starting with an intensive process of writing and demoing songs in her Toronto apartment, and finishing with a month-long retreat in Los Angeles. In mid-2018 she travelled to Long Pond, the upstate New York studio and home of Aaron Dessner.

In 2019, Georgas joined modern rock favourites The National on the road singing back-ups for them and opening up in a few cities in Europe and North America, all excellent exposure.

Last year, she also released Imprints, a 4-song EP in celebration of International Women’s Day, comprising covers of songs The Cranberries, Eurythmics, Janet Jackson and Tegan and Sara.
