She captured the hearts of television viewers on Season 8 of NBC's The Voice. Now, Hannah Kirby is refining her music and set to play a gig with the largest band she's ever assembled.

Hannah recently spoke to Notably Texan about the continued recognition she receives from The Voice, her new concept album in the works, and the 7-piece band (including a horn section) she will perform with at the Paris Balloon and Music Festival on Friday night.
