Kirby fondly remembers 'The Voice'; New album in November

Sulphur Springs entertainer Hannah Kirby is using her experience on "The Voice" as inspiration to work harder on her debut full-length record. Finishing in the top 8 finalists on NBC's Emmy winning talent show was just the spark Kirby needed to put together a brand new band, and head into the studio to record tracks for the upcoming "Fire In My Soul" album.

No stranger to A&M-Commerce, Hannah Kirby visited the KETR Studios to talk about the upcoming music release, life since becoming a TV star, her excitement about performing for the first time with her new full band at this weekend's Bois D'Arc Bash, and her ever-present enthusiasm for video games.

Have a listen to Hannah's debut single from the November release "Fire In My Soul" in its entirety here. More about the artist's upcoming shows, etc.  is available on her website.
