In 12 years of being a working musician, John has released 5 albums, capturing a Juno nomination for Best Traditional/ Roots album and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Album of the Year.
“You’re dead a long time” chants Juno nominated John Wort Hannam’s mantra, “so you better get out there and play.”
John Wort Hannam and the Blue Collars’ winsome, lonesome and then some style of acoustic roots reveals a woven textile of metaphor, phrasing, irony, and rhyme that reads with ease like well written prose.
He is one of the new torch-bearers of a vast songwriting tradition in the styles of John Prine, Louden Wainwright III, and Steve Earle but proudly Canadian.
