In literature and in songwriting, the American South is where writers go to face their fears. Hannah Aldridge doesn’t just dip her pen into the well of the South, the Muscle Shoals native embodies it. With every song, she’s facing down demons of a life once lived from substance abuse to failed relationships and scars from the lashes of the bible belt. 'Gold Rush' is Hannah Aldridge’s second album, a follow up to her 2014 debut 'Razor Wire'. While that album launched her career, drew the attention of music writers and sent her touring across the world, 'Gold Rush' shows a more mature and introspective artist with more life experience - and music experience - under her belt.
