At the start of the pandemic, Ottawa artist and musician Hannah Judge had just broken up with her boyfriend, dropped out of college and moved back home with her parents, intent on becoming a comic artist. But she was writing songs, too, and brought that comic knowing sense of humor to her angsty brand of fuzzy pop. As fanclubwallet, she began posting songs on Bandcamp, and two years later, she's gearing up to release her debut album, You Have Got To Be Kidding Me, on May 20 via AWAL.

You can check out a couple songs from the album now, including the infectious breakup song "Gr8 Timing!" Says Hannah, “Even people that everyone thinks are really nice can be mean too. Everyone has a mean streak!” Watch the video for that and listen to "That I Won't Do" below.

Hannah is currently in Austin with her fanclubwallet live band for SXSW. They were terrific last night at the M for Montreal showcase at Swan Dive, and we just added them to our free Lost Weekend day party today (3/17), replacing Luna Li who dropped out of the festival. You can RSVP here.

After SXSW, fanclub wallet will head to NYC to play Mercury Lounge on March 24 with Thomas Headon, and from there both acts will play DC, Boston and Chicago. In June they have dates with Penelope Scott & Yot Club, including Dallas, Austin, Houston, Atlanta, Nashville, Columbus, Detroit, and Toronto.
