    Nice to see Taylor Hanson. Very amazing singer. What a voice! Hanson founded their own label in their twenties and as independent artists don’t have the reach that major labels do. But they have so many amazing songs! Their Underneath album which they produced themselves in their early twenties is a work of pop genius. Their recent album called Anthem also has great songs like Tragic Symphony and Fired Up. Keep it up, Hanson. The event is a nice gathering of talented and passionate people who do what they do best.
