About
Juno-nominated Southern Alberta, lyrically driven Roots music.
In 2001, John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent 10 months depleting his savings while sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first ten songs. Those songs would become his first recording Pocket Full Of Holes, released in 2003. Eighteen years later, the Alberta musician is working on his eighth full-length recording and has a few feathers in that lucky hat for his first seven offerings. Feathers that include a JUNO nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, A CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award, a Kerrville Texas New Folk win, and numerous Western Canadian Music Award and Canadian Folk Music Award nominations. Recent years have seen a great deal of change in John’s life – becoming a Dad, a move to the big city (Lethbridge), a marital reckoning, and overcoming a long, deep bout of depression with episodes of losing his singing voice. But John has emerged a better songwriter, a better singer, and a better player. John has further found his lyrical style and has landed squarely on his niche in the folk/roots world. He's spent years learning the craft of songwriting and is taking those tools to write some of his most personal songs. He has, quite literally, found his voice.
