Originally from Jeromesville, Hannan toured the state heavily from age 13 to 17, gaining much notoriety in the process. Her first recording contract was made when she was only 13 when a record company recognized her strong, driving vocal style.

  • Recorded compilation CD for Sonic Records, containing Jessica’s song “Here Again”
  • Recorded/Release first full length CD “First Flight” in 2002
  • Began touring nationally with her first band in 2002

  • Recorded/Released E.P. “Drive” in 2016
  • Video Shoot and release of “Girls Night Out” Video.
  • Recorded/Released E.P. “Broken” in 2018

The band spends much of its current time in Nashville where they record for another label, and also on the road. The band’s 2019 tour takes them across the northern part of Ohio, including local stops in Richland County.
