CRITIC’S PICK: Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Wicklund turned professional at nine, started recording at twelve, then touring at 16 — and hasn’t looked back. She has shifted musical gears from bluesy rock to a more widescreen, introspective style on her new album The Prize. It’s a fairly abrupt change in direction, but one that might help break her into the mainstream she has so far mostly avoided, despite a roaring, wall-shaking voice. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Hannah Wicklund has been traveling fast and far, playing big cities and small towns around the world since starting her band at 8 years old. With her new album, produced by Sam Kiszka, she is now arriving somewhere completely unexpected. Ethereal texturing, smokey falsetto vocals, string section surprises, and guitar solos that carry equal parts pain and joy are woven tastefully into what Wicklund says is, “A record that just sounds like me.” Much like Hannah’s paintings she has become known for, each song is intricately entrancing and honored with two things seemingly lost in today’s world ... patience and time. With Sam Kiszka on bass/keys/organ and Danny Wagner on drums, both of Greta Van Fleet, the songs serve as a rock ’n’ roll roadmap to a crossroads that Wicklund has been unknowingly gravitating towards for well over a decade.
