Playing Favorites is an interview series where creative people pick a topic and tell us their five favorite things about it. Opinions expressed in this series are those of the interviewees and do not reflect the opinions of S.W. Lauden or The Big Takeover.
Hannah Judge, singer/songwriter behind the band fanclubwallet, started writing her debut album at the beginning of the pandemic, after breaking up with her boyfriend, dropping out of university, and moving back home to live with her parents in Ottawa.
