Hannah Hoffman

Vermont wood-dweller Hannah Hoffman finds inspiration in observing human behavior, and exploring the concepts of light and darkness within oneself. Currently in the process of writing her second album, Hoffman finds comfort in the uncomfortable exploration of what it means to be vulnerable, and how to expose and communicate the deep, dark parts of oneself through music. Hoffman's freshman release, "Blur" (2015) consists of a collection of songs written during her formative years of leaving teenage-land and entering adulthood, and all of the heartbreak, experimenting with substances and relationships, and attempts at establishing oneself independently that come with it. Raised on her parent's extensive collection of music, Hoffman was fascinated with everything from Led Zeppelin and Joni Mitchell, to The Cure, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, which is reflected in her songwriting style with elements of rock, folk, and a new wave edge.


This event is made possible with support from the BCA Community Fund. This is a Vermont Arts 2017 performance.

Join the studio audience for a free old school live radio show on October 4, as Gestalt and Hannah Hoffman perform at Arts Riot. Rocket Shop is Big Heavy World's local music radio hour, broadcasting every Wednesday from 8-9pm on 105.9FM The Radiator, streaming at bigheavyworld.comand in the iTunes 'eclectic' radio section. The show usually broadcasts from Big Heavy World/Radiator headquarters in the SEABA Center next door to Arts Riot, but this time around guest host Paddy Reagan and our guest musicians will share the Arts Riot stage next door at 400 Pine Street (Burlington) and everyone is invited to join the audience of this old-time broadcast!

Special thanks to RETN for taping the concert for television and to Joe Egan at Egan Media for recording the show! Catch up with podcasts of prior episodes in iTunes or at! The show is free, handicapped accessible and all-ages. Doors at 7pm, music at 7:45pm.
