Hannah Rose Dexter is a 23-year-old bass player and composer with expansive range and interests. Had she never heard the album Funk Power by James Brown, she’d be well along the slippery slope to a career in classical music. Six years after putting that record on the stereo, her style is a combination of all that she loves: funk, ragtime, old time, jazz, pop, world, experimental, new wave, 50s rock’n’roll, country western, and (still) classical.
Since graduating with her Bachelor’s from CalArts in 2015, she has scored the feature length film Wild Prairie Rose, performed an original solo bass score to a series of 19th century films at REDCAT, and another to The Glass Menagerie, directed by Deborah Lavine and James Franco. In her spare time, she can be seen biking around Los Angeles and performing with the psychedelic children’s band, A Horse A Spoon A Bucket.
