The 1975‘s Adam Hann is the band’s impressive lead guitarist. He’s an important part of the band’s unique sound and, as the band would say, he’s “way out.”
Hann has been with The 1975 since the beginning. It’s been his first — and only — band. He went to school with Matty Healy, Ross MacDonald and George Daniel and they’ve been making music together since the early 2000s. Before they started creating the 80s inspired music that is The 1975, they were performing covers. Now they’ve found their own sound — and a cult following.
Since they’ve been together so long, their music and stage shows are well put together and polished and each member has gotten more talented through the years.
Hann’s guitar skills have always been an integral part of The 1975, a British pop band that’s heavy on guitar. Get a preview of what to expect when you see Hann and The 1975 live below:
He chatted with Premier Guitar last year about just how geeky his love for guitars is. He told them he’s been playing since he was a teen and, although he tried lessons, he’s primarily self taught. Read more on Premier Guitar‘s website.
Hann’s skills don’t stop with the guitar. His hands are talented in other ways, too. The Manchester-born musician also lent his hands to producer Mike Crossey for the band’s self-titled debut album. His heart lies with the guitar though and it’s obvious after simply glancing at his Insta. (How does he make photos of amps look good?)
The 1975 are currently on tour and tickets are a hot commodity. They’re done with their US portion of the tour but still have dates in Germany, the UK and Italy. The band’s next album will drop next year and they’ll likely announce more tour dates in support of the new music. Just remember to mark your calendar for presale opportunities, it’ll be a show you don’t want to miss.
