SON OF HAN 4 time Juno winner, Leot Hanson, invites the listener to join him in an honest and intimate journey through his 20 year musical career. Hanson cut his teeth with The Sheepdogs, the first unsigned band to make the cover of the Rolling Stone. He later joined The Pistolwhips, and The League of Wolves. which he continues to play with today. Part owner of Skullcreek Studios, Hanson has spent long days and nights with co-owner Aspen Beveridge, working on side projects and amping up his producing skills. For Hanson, "Beveridge is the ying to my yang in the music world",
Driven by his love of music and the search for his own 'sound', Son of Han is a culmination of songs that have incubated and evolved over the years. With Covid Lockdown came the opportunity to hone his song writing and musical craft, and finally focus on his first solo project. Over the course of the year the songs were molded and shaped into something that is connected tonally, but also offers completely different vibes from song to song, which makes for a more interesting listen. Many of Hanson's very talented musician peers helped perform and arrange certain tracks throughout the record. Aspen Beveridge a fellow musician and friend of Hanson's, led the engineering on the record while also helping arrange, produce, and master the tracks. The result is a refined musical perspective that delivers a distinctive welcoming contribution to the 'ever expanding rock genre'. Son of Han dishes out a dynamic ear pleasing album with a unique lingering sound easily identified as the "Leot Hanson Sound".
"Tapping into the subconscious is at the core of my creative process. A lot of the raw ideas and melodies incubating over the years, were born when I was not entirely awake, or in a state where I’m far enough away from myself to let a lot of truth and genuine emotion bubble to the surface”
“At the end of the day if you can’t be honest with yourself and you own music, what do you really have to offer?”
Casting a wide net of sound and style from Psych / Stoner Rock to PopRock, the EP speaks much like a Ween record, where the grooves and melodies are more unpredictable yet relatable. SON OF HAN strives to stand apart from the norm, while still creating a little something for any music fan.
