Hana Pestle

4 05 2009

They call Montana “Big Sky Country.” That seems to be the limit for what Billings singer/songwriter Hana Pestle can become.

Born in Atlanta, Pestle’s family moved to Salt Lake City and settled in Montana. Pestle received a guitar for Christmas in the 6th grade and by 8th Grade was performing live. A 2005 DVD of one of her hometown performances ended up the hands of record producer Michael Herring and former Evanescence member Ben Moody. The pair of industry vets took Pestle under their wing recording an e.p. and teaming her with producer arranger Dave Campbell. Working with Campbell, who happens to be Beck’s father was quite a coup for a teenaged artist. Campbell is rightly recognized as a genius arranger. The project was shopped to the majors, but will come out on Moody’s FNR imprint instead.

To watch the other two songs Hana recorded for us after the jump…

“These Two Hands”

“Just A Phase”
