[Note: To receive the 2018 Member kit, you must join/renew within 2018 with an expiration date of 2019 or later.]
About the Hanson.net Community and why it exists:
"We care first and foremost about the relationship we have with the people who like our band/music. We know how important that relationship is and that is why Hanson.net exists. The Hanson.net Community is a place for all of us to stay connected with one another, fueled by one common passion, music.” -Isaac Hanson
While it is often called a Fan Club by many, Hanson.net is far more than that. Hanson.net is a community of people from all over the world, from many different walks of life, with one thing in common… The love of music. Hanson.net also gives us a place to take risks that could otherwise be difficult to explain. You see we, Isaac, Taylor and Zac as artists need a place to throw the musical gloves off and know that those who hear/see what we are up to will understand where we are coming from or at very least enjoy it. In other words... We trust you.
Once a year we take time to make Hanson.net Members Only EP’s (2014’s Music Made for Humans, 2013's The Sound of Light, 2012’s No Sleep For Banditos, etc.), and it has become one of the most exciting creative experiences we have each year. The thing that makes it so much fun is the fact that we do not know what will happen. We set out each year with no preconceived notion, no musical check lists, no limitations. We are purely there to chase the muse, trying to find new ways to explore and articulate the feelings of being human, the joy, the pain, the love, the hopes, the fun and desire for a better tomorrow. That is after all what music is, a contained way of telling one another how we feel, what we think, who we are. And music does not care whether you wrote it, recorded it or are listening to it, in any case the feelings are no less true or real. That is what makes music so special, it unites us, and even if it is for a brief 3-4 minutes that feeling can stay with us forever. That is why we do music. That is what we care about. The honest power of an emotional and musical connection and the trust that it creates.
“We are very lucky that this is our job as well as our passion. We owe that in large part to our fans. While making music can be very hard work it is the joy of the relationship we have with people who like our band that make it all so worth while.” -Zac Hanson
The other side of why the Hanson.net Community exists is also very important, but it reaches outside of the community. In the same way that we are able take musical risks in sharing freely our inspirations (no matter how random and different), your membership not only makes it possible for us to do unique and exciting Members Only Events (M.O.E.) like Back to the Island and Hanson Day each year but it all so also fuels the making of New: Albums, Singles, Music Videos, Tours. The support you give us each year through your membership to Hanson.net
“We know that people trust us to put the best of ourselves into everything that we do and if we do not give our music our full focus and passion we have violated the trust that is at the core of our relationship with them. What’s more, You can’t expect someone to care about something if you don’t care about it yourself.” -Taylor Hanson
With every thing we do we always try to ask “what would we want if we were Hanson.net Members”. It is that question that has driven us to do most things that we do in the community every thing from Fan Club Reporters (at each show on tour we do an interview with a Hanson.net Member), to Members Only Event recording sessions (Underneath Acoustic, Middle of Nowhere Acoustic & Stand Up Stand Up), and yearly events like Back to the Island and Hanson Day. We very much want to make your membership valuable because that way you can see that we value you.
Thanks for considering joining Hanson.net, All the best, ISAAC, TAYLOR & ZAC
