Newly signed to Bella Union, the California-born and New York-based Hannah Cohen arrives with a rich biography that takes in time as a model, muse and photographer.

She’s been shot by everyone from Ryan McGinley to Terry Richardson, produced her own book of abstract pictures shot during time in Bahia and Rio De Janeiro and is a self-taught musician and songwriter.

Her début record drops in April but until then we’ve got Matthu Placek‘s arrestingly simply video to accompany Cohen’s heart-rippingly melancholic ‘The Crying Game’. Take it in and be overwhelmed by the incredible connection the young singer-songwriter (not surprisingly) has with the camera.
