Hanson CD
Hanson is back with the release of their new CD, This Time Around, on 9 May 2000.
Hanson Background
Hanson Who? - Hanson is three close knit brothers: Isaac, Taylor and Zachary. They are better known as Ike, Tay, and Zac. See the comparison Hanson Birthday Countdown Table. Hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma, they spent a few years singing at fairs, festivals and the popular new venue for mini-concerts - shopping malls. Finally it was one of these shopping mall gigs that took them to the top of that rollercoaster. In late spring of 1997, The three performed at the Paramus Park Mall in Paramus, New Jersey. They had been signed by Mercury Records and Hanson's record MMMBop was a hit, climbing higher in the charts every day. They had a following of thousands of squealing and screaming fans. (For the older generations - remember Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Duran Duran? Okay, you've got the picture). 

Soon articles about Hanson were popping up in the popular magazines, "People", "Rolling Stone", "US", and every teen magazine known to mankind, even those in foreign countries. Hanson has had TV guest appearances on the "Today Show", "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee" and "Saturday Night Live". 

Irresistible - "MMMBop" is contagious, it's something that stays with you long after the song has ended. They are contagious - you see them and hear them and you want more. Young girls, mothers, grandmothers - all have found these young men irresistible. 

Do It Themselves - The Hanson clan write and sing their own songs. The inspiration for their songs comes from everyday life and, of course, girls. They play their own instruments. Hanson music has a definite 50's rock influence, possibly helped along by their parents who are both musically gifted. Their mom and dad were always singing and making up songs. So the brothers grew up in a home where music was part of their daily lives. And they spend a lot of time in that home because they don't go to school. The brothers are home schooled and it seems to be working very well. 

Been There - Done That - In just a short time, the three brothers have been at the top, have toured Europe, have made music videos, have recorded their own special holiday CD, have appeared on the "Rosie O'Donnell Show", have had a book written about them, have a home video, and of course, what started it all, their album "Middle of Nowhere". Oh, in case you don't know, Isaac plays guitar, Taylor plays keyboard and is the lead singer, and Zac plays drums. There's a lot more to come from this talented trio, and maybe just a slightly different sound, Zac's voice is changing. 

"Weird" - Hanson chose the Oprah Winfrey Show to debut their new single, "Weird". The only guests on the Feb. 16 show, Isaac, Taylor and Zac performed to an audience made up of devoted teenaged females.  The video of "Weird", also just released, was directed by Gus Van Sant.  He was the director of the Oscar nominated movie, "Good Will Hunting".
