Hani Zahra

Hani Zahra Hani Zahra is a man and a band. The man originated from Nebraska and has recorded nearly 800 songs since the age of 16 ranging from acoustical Beatles-inspired love songs to warped surf rock guitar medleys glazed in falsetto harmonies.

The band is comprised of drummer Tom Ambroz (former member of UUVVWWZ), bassist Adrian Morgan (of Timeless Mastering), synth player Gillian Orwoll (from Max & Gillian), and guitarist Dan Hanrahan (of The People).

The band officially formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and have three releases since 2012. Hani Zahra EP was the first in May, followed by the full-length Along Those Lines a year later. They played their album release show to a sold out audience at The Bowery Electric on April 5th, 2013.

On September 27th, 2014 the band released their second full-length album, Cereal, and held the release at The Knitting Factory on the same day.

Over the past two years, Hani Zahra has garnered enough attention to be invited to play Rooftop Films, to winning The Deli's NYC Artist of the Month, and now to play at the 2014 CMJ Music Marathon. While the band continues to perform through New York City's indie hot spots, the vocalist and main songwriter maintains his obsessive desire to record. What will surface from these recordings will undoubtedly be something weird. One thing is for sure: there doesn't seem to be any sign that there won't be a new release upon each coming year.
