Mmhmm are Hannah Fairlight (Acoustic Guitar, Stomp Box) and Raelyn Nelson (Ukulele). The pair have gained a lot of traction individually with their solo projects, and now the universe has pushed them together to form a genre-mixing duo that was has been deemed “envelope pushing” by Nashville Arts Magazine.

With catchy melodies, pretty harmonies, and their sassy, sweet and sexy vocals, it’s no wonder The East Nashvillian named them “the breakout duo of the year.”

When Midwest native Hannah Fairlight moved to Raelyn Nelson’s hometown of Nashville, TN, the people of the village kept confusing them for one-another, so the two like-minded lookalikes decided to form a band.

Raelyn Nelson has been singing since she can remember, having been raised on a steady diet of traditional country and gospel music. A gift from her grandpa (Country music royalty Willie Nelson), in the form of a guitar, was the inspiration she needed. She began writing her own songs and formed The Raelyn Nelson band, a completely fresh and original sound, a true hybrid referred to by some critics as “Country/Garage Rock.” ”I don’t really have a desire to be a ‘solo-artist’. Everyone in my family who plays music has always placed a lot of importance on band chemistry, on stage, off stage and in the studio. Hannah and I can read each other’s minds. Why would I wanna mess with that?”

Hannah Fairlight, a Midwestern girl turned TV-personality and original music pioneer, hasn’t wasted any time paving her future in Music City since she landed there in 2013. After landing a leading role on A&E’s Crazy Hearts: Nashville and released a self-produced EP reminiscent of Jack White’s raw rock sound, Fairlight went on to work with legendary rock producer Michael Wagener (Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osborne, Motley Crue) before landing the role of Veracity in Universal’s Pitch Perfect 3. “People always ask me what genre my music is. I never know how to respond,” says the Bowie-and-Patti Smith-inspired young rocker. “I like to take risks and stay true to myself.” Says Fairlight

So, what makes the talented duo work so well…? “There are no “no’s” in mmhmm.” Fairlight says. “mmhmm” agrees Nelson.
