The driving force behind Donora Music Creative is the brother/sister team of Jake and Casey Hanner. Growing up in a musical household, each sibling began experimenting with music on their own at a young age. In 2003, they combined their varied musical influences and experiences and started writing music together. As they matured musically, Casey concentrated on songwriting, branching out into many different genres. At the same time, Jake was honing his production, engineering, mixing, and mastering skills in the studio working with many different artists of varying styles. The brother/sister duo, along with bassist Jake Churton, have been writing and recording music together for ten years as the band Donora. After seeing the success their music has had with television, advertising, and film placements, Jake and Casey decided to focus their efforts on creating original music for these outlets.
Donora Music Creative is a full-service company that can take a song from inception to a finished, media-ready product. Access to their own private recording studio ensures a quick turnaround time for clients. Jake and Casey love the challenge of using different instrumentation and writing styles to create specific moods or to fit into particular genres. The projects they have worked on have taken them all over the musical map, ranging from a bubbly and bouncy children's song about the planets for Pittsburgh's Carnegie Science Center to latin inspired music cues for an independent film set in Spanish Harlem. Donora Music Creative believes that music is an essential part of visual media, and they are excited to help you with your next project!
