With a large repertoire of songs, Adla M. Hannon hails from Waterbury, Ct. Her songs are classic and traditional ballads, choruses and both male and female vocals -- all with more sincerity and heart than pop. Alda's music often has an old vintage broadcast sound, with little squeaks and static heard over the radio in the 1930s and 1940s. With a strong sense of America during the World War II era, Alda's folksy, downhome oldies and love songs will add authenticity to dramas from this era. Many of these songs are a tribute to her husband during the years of the Second World War.
Listening to Alda Hannon is like an early 20th century walk down Memory Lane -- a lane many of today's listeners are too young to remember, but may have seen it in the Golden Era of Hollywood filmmaking. Many of the male and female vocals remind one of the great baritone Richard Middleton singing with Ethel Merman (as Annie Oakley), from both the 1946 Broadway musical "Annie Get Your Gun" and the later film, starring Betty Hutton, honoring Buffalo Bill's Wild West.
Adla's tracks can be upbeat, bluesy or spiritual, praising the Lord like a 1940s tent revival in rural parts of the South. With folksy humor, much of Alda's music sheds a light on hard times during the sad depression and recession years when farmers lost their farms and began their migration into cities to the Northeast for factory jobs, or to California with the hope of making a better life for their families.
