SPRINGFIELD -- Effingham County’s own Nashville recording artist, Hannah Dasher, will take center stage at the Mars Theatre on Aug. 17 at 7 p.m.
A Nashville transplant with a dream and a six string, Dasher is making waves in country music. With influences ranging from Dolly Parton and Aretha Franklin to Eric Church and Tom Petty, Dasher's sound has been compared to "Hot Chicken with Honey.”
Dasher recently celebrated her first songwriting cut on Brad Paisley's new Love and War album. The track entitled "Go To Bed Early” also features Dasher on background vocals. She is currently writing for Sony/ATV Nashville and Two Black Dogs Publishing, a company formed by hit songwriter and The Cadillac Three front man Jaren Johnston.
Over the last year, Dasher and Johnston have been working tirelessly on her debut record, “Heavy,” which will be released later this year.
“Hannah has a voice and personality I feel the country format desperately needs,” said producer and publisher Jaren Johnston. "Her ‘Dolly Parton on cocaine’ vibe puts her in a league of her own. She is a rock star plain and simple and I can’t wait for the world to experience her.”
Dasher is currently out on the road opening for The Cadillac Three for the “Long Hair Don’t Care Tour.”
Limited tickets remain and can be purchased at www.marstheatre.com, Springfield City Hall, theatre box office or call 912-754-1118.
