What I Feel reflects my interest in mentoring and collaborating with local women artists. Musically it fuses various genres and generations of music while emphasizing the power of the female voice. It contains 11 selections. In the album liner notes, celebrated Baltimore culture writer Bret McCabe states:
"The solo female vocal album can feel a bit dusty, a relic of a time when jazz was popular music and American Idol didn’t exist. The trick to making it work today isn’t trying to appeal to contemporary audiences, it’s writing songs that compliment the voice. That’s exactly what Diana Wharton Sennaar and Jaara Sennaar do for Hána on What I Feel, 11 tracks of ethereal beauty spotlighting a voice that feels whisper soft but lands a powerful emotional punch. Sure, some right-now sounds seep in—the R&B beat bounce of “Insanity,” the gentle hip-hop pulse of the title track—but for the most part the Sennaars recognize that a voice this refined needs only to be wrapped in a ghost of a melody and arrangements as delicately ornate as flowers. Look no further than “Heart 2 Love,” a flirtation between Hána and an acoustic guitar that starts off as a hushed secret and blossoms into a levitating rush as refreshing as a deep breath of ocean air. Elsewhere, the Sennaars put a dash of rhythmic spice underneath Hána’s husky vibrato (“Doin’ Things Together”), let her slow dance with a bass and drums groove that is as tender as a caress (“Pride”), and provide her with a fingersnapping ripple created by interlacing a lissome guitar line and percussive textures (the positively exuberant “Joy”). Perhaps most stunning of all is the haunting “Lovely Day,” a gentle piano and strings ballad that allows Hána to swoop in and take your breath away."
