Hannah Brady debuts and Lady Zen sings k.d. lang: this week at Incanto

Dynamic vocalist Hannah Brady captivates her audience with jazz, pop, soul, and beyond! You never know what you’re going get with this insatiable singer. Originally from the New York theatre scene, Hannah has performed everywhere from Mexico to China. Having started in musical and contemporary theater, she has also dabbled in classical, country, rock, Top 40 hits, eclectic house music, disco, soul, and jazz.

Hannah’s musical taste offers a nostalgic insight into the music that influenced her growing up, and it has served as a unifier in every country she’s lived. In her all-new show ‘Paloma En La Playa’ (‘A Dove On The Beach’), Hannah honors such legends as The Jackson 5, Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Donna Summer and Stevie Wonder accompanied by several local musicians. There will also be guest appearances by singer Luis Villanueva and other local artists.
