Hemma is the musical project of Eau Claire songwriter Hannah Hebl. Raised in a family of singers, she started writing songs at an early age on guitar and piano. Growing up as a beloved interpreter of songs for familial ceremonies, Hebl now makes her living sharing her original songs and commanding attention in spaces such as the Parkway Theater in Minneapolis and MSP Airport's Republic Stage. She’s had the honor to serve as a backing vocalist for HALEY, Sarah Krueger, and Wendy Lewis. She joined the PEOPLE collective in 2017 with a pop project called hômlê. Her debut EP, “Tomorrow River”, co-produced with Shane Leonard, will be released early 2020.

With training in performance from Phillips Exeter Academy (Ketch Secor, Win Butler), San Francisco Art Institute (Jerry Garcia, Janis Joplin), UW-Eau Claire (Justin Vernon),

and L'ecole de danse contemporaine in Montreal,

Hebl returned to Minneapolis in 2016 to pursue a

songwriting career. 

She writes original songs that float melodies characterized

by Hymnals and American Country music,

while sustaining a penchant for modernity

in her use of a beat machine and synthesized sounds. Her backing band includes members of Humbird, Field Report, and S. Carey.  

Swedish for 'at home', Hemma practices this craft with deep respect for

the authenticity of the homespun song.

Having grown up in a family of singers,

with whom she recorded 8 albums by the age of 15,

Hemma is at home in the studio, on stage, on tour, and in song.


Born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, she now splits her time between her hometown and the twin cities,

writing, performing, and recording.   




"Hemma is a talent."

- Dave Schipper, chair of Great River Folk Festival
