Makena Hartlin is a unique Nashville based singer- songwriter whose power lies in her ability to silence rooms with her equally intimate and powerful vocals. She draws in her listeners with lyrically colorful and detailed songs. She never shies away from heavy song subject matter, such as: generational trauma and healing, love and loss, and the delicate complexity of femininity.
“Listening to Makena is an experience where the listener no longer feels like part of an audience, but part of the story”- (DamnSmashNash)
She has done thousands of live performances since her start as a musician, ranging from solo acoustic shows to full band opening slots for national touring acts. Since moving to Nashville, TN in 2020, she has become a core member of the Pitch Meeting band, sung background vocals for household names in the music industry and sung on world renowned stages such as the Ryman Auditorium.
She plans to release numerous singles throughout 2023.
