LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Catchy, hopeful and full of grace!
Hannah Schzde (“Sheez-dae”) is a singer-songwriter and violinist born and raised in Mexico City.
Hannah draws the majority of her musical inspiration from her roots and culture, leaning heavily onto percussive rhythms, “protestor spirit” and colorful visual metaphors that blur lines between reality and imagination.
In 2011, Hannah immigrated to the U.S. to pursue a degree in Music from the University of Massachusetts Boston and jumpstart her music career. After earning her degree, Hannah became immersed in the indie, jazz and folk music scenes of Boston and continues to fuse those elements into her music.
“I wrote “Fonder” during a one-month-long trip to my hometown Mexico City. It was my first time being far away from my now husband since we started dating. Even though I deeply missed him, I also felt grateful for having him in my life and knowing that we would be together again soon.
Many of us have spent a long time far away from the people we love, especially in the last couple of years. This song is a light at the end of the tunnel for all of us who deeply miss someone and a reminder that, whenever we see each other again, our love will be stronger than ever.”

Lyrics such as “distance is the number of days until I see you” show how much she misses this person. Wishing she “had a photograph” of the day they met. The song’s overall message is about being away from that someone. Whether that’s your family, partner, or anyone who makes you feel special. But something that makes this single even more beautiful is at the end, there is a light and sense of hopefulness in the story. Hannah is counting down the days until she finally is reunited and gets to experience the fullness of that love once again.
