A brief Hanson mention in this article about The Alabama Shakes Frontwoman Brittany Howard

She was 13, out of a pre-teen obsession with the pop group Hanson, newly a fan of grownup stuff such as The Dark Side of the Moon, when she set about turning herself in to a musician. She taught herself the guitar and spent hours alone in her bedroom with a midi keyboard and a computer. Ten hours at a stretch, sometimes, just writing. It isn’t hard to imagine this being a method of coping with grief.
