Aimee Hannan’s new single ‘Brighter Side’ was co-written with nine-time Golden Guitar winner Lyn Bowtell. Aimee has drawn upon her own life experiences to deliver the essence of the song as well as her observations of the world around her during the current pandemic. Life has been difficult for many, with people experiencing mental health issues, missing family, and all of the associated problems we have been sharing.
Now is the time we can look on the ‘Brighter Side’ with this bubbly upbeat song speaking of letting go of the negative and enjoying the positive things in life. Produced by Rod Motbey at his Tracking Dog Studios, Aimee will have you singing and dancing along with her as she heads into this celebration of life.
Aimee found her love of country music at age ten, joining the local country music club. She was soon selected to open Lee Kernaghan’s Hat Town tour in Queensland. Aimee then travelled the countryside competing in many festivals throughout Queensland and NSW with great success, as well as graduating from both the Junior and Senior programs at the CMAA Academy of Country Music.
Singing is a major part of Aimee’s life however it became increasingly difficult to perform as she was struggling with a rare medical condition that was causing her heart to fail, and it became necessary for Aimee to have her leg amputated. Staying true to herself, Aimee was back on stage months later performing from her wheelchair until her prosthetic was made. Nothing could stop her.
After competing in Today’s Country Brand New Star competition, she connected with fellow artists Gina Jeffreys and Max Jackson and with their help co-wrote a collection of songs, some of which Aimee recorded on her debut album ‘Stronger’, recorded at Hillbilly Hut Studios with Simon Johnson.
