We were just in Seattle and now we’re in Richmond, Canada. We’re almost 3 weeks into our 10 week tour, and I decided to interview Hannah to see how she’s been feeling about touring so far!
Q: What has been your favorite part of this tour so far?
A: Being able to travel a lot of the country and sharing the gospel. I’m very humbled to have this experience.
Q: What has been your favorite city/state we’ve been to this tour?
A: Seattle! It was a fun city to explore. There’s so much more to see, do, and eat than the Midwest. Mountains > Plains any day 🙂
Q: What’s a memorable thing that happened to you at a venue?
A: In Sunnyside, WA, I met a ton of people who had a lot of connections to Prinsburg and my hometown. I almost felt like I was back in the Midwest.
Q: What’s your favorite song in our rep and why?
A: We Walk? It’s so hard to choose! But I love We Walk because it’s hype, first off haha. The song talks about how Jesus will take away every earthly pain and heartache we are going through, and how that battle has already been won. Because of what Christ has done, we can now walk in power and love. And I just think that’s a super awesome thing that we get to walk int he Spirit and have Christ on our side.
Q: What place are you most excited to go to this tour?
A: LA to meet Phoebe’s family. And I’ve never been to Cali before. (Wow. I blushed. Hannah is great.)
Q: What’s the hardest part about touring?
A: Team life, not getting enough sleep, and sitting in a van where I can’t fully extend my legs because of the length of them.
Q: How would you describe this team in 3 words?
A: Perseverant, Passionate about the gospel, Weird (Hannah, that’s more than 3 words, but it’s fine. It’s fine.)
Q: Lastly, how have you grown musically from this experience?
A: I was trained classically, so coming into CTI and was suddenly playing guitar lead lines on a keyboard was a real learning curve. It also involved playing a LOT of chords, and inversions were never my strong suit, but they come so so much easier now. I think I’ve learned a lot more about my instrument and how, when/where it fits and how to figure out what a song really needs from a keyboard.
We’ll be heading back to the States in a couple days, and continuing our ministry on the west coast. Hope to see you on the road!
