There comes a time and a place, no matter how difficult it may be, when even fire must acknowledge the fervency of its flame. Now is the time. Hannah Rose Graves is the flame. Be warmed, or be warned. A pillar in the architecture of the ever-evolving West Michigan music scene, Hannah Rose Graves is stepping into her power, claiming her place as a dynamic centerpiece, and heartbeat of a revolving repertoire of Michigan’s most talented musicians and songwriters. A classically trained vocalist, under the tutelage of an opera singer, Graves grew up singing in her church choir, shattering other children’s dreams in talent shows. Her love of music, and joy in the spirit of collaboration is evident in the diversity of genres she ranges: Americana, country, blues, rock, funk, soul. From Hannah Rose and The GravesTones, to the Benzing Graves Collective, this energy center has answered her call the very way a lighthouse brings lost sailors home from sea, now performing as a soloist on keys, acoustic guitar, acoustic duo, jazz trio, up to full funk and folk band ensembles.
