Hannah Parrott was born in Los Angeles, California. She began composing and playing piano by ear at the age of 10.

While not surrounded by formally trained musicians, Hannah was immersed in musical settings, often singing four-part harmony with her three sisters and in the local church choir. It was through these experiences that melody and the singability of musical ideas became of primary importance in her compositional development.

Upon hearing the score by Harry Gregson-Williams for the Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Hannah was drawn into the partnership of film and music to tell a story. Hannah then went on to study Music Composition at Biola University’s Conservatory of Music, collaborating as composer with many filmmakers from the film program at the university.

Hannah has been involved in the music for such films as BBC's Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II, Finding Dory, The Magnificent Seven (2016), The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug, Chaisson: Quest for Oriud (Phoenix Comic-Con, San Diego Comic-Con, FilmQuest Film Festival), This Is Not the End (Best Short Film - SF IndieFest, Grand Jury Prize - No Budget Film Festival, Slamdance on the Road), Reagan (LA FIlm Festival), and Heritage (Best Student Short - Sedona International Film Festival, Best Original Score - Biola Film Festival). Hannah has worked for notable composers James Horner, Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer, John Debney, Michael Boddicker, and J.A.C. Redford, has been the pupil of such esteemed composers as Dr. Robert Denham and Mike Watts, and has assisted Grammy-nominated recording engineers Simon Rhodes and Chris James.

Hannah is currently living in Los Angeles and pursuing a career in film and TV scoring.
