N. Lincoln Hanks studied voice with Nina Hinson and Paul Kiesgen and composition with Don Freund, Frederick Fox, Claude Baker and John Harbison at the Aspen School of Music. He also studied early music performance practice with Thomas Binkley and Paul Hillier at Indiana University's Early Music Institute, where he helped found the award-winning vocal group, The Concord Ensemble. The group, of which Hanks is also a member, performs and records a variety of music ranging from medieval, renaissance, and baroque music to contemporary vocal works.

As a composer Lincolnís accolades include winning the Contemporary Choral Composition Competition from The Roger Wagner Center for Choral Studies and an ASCAP Foundation/Morton Gould Young Composer Award. He has been commissioned by many distinguished performing artists and groups, including the Cyprus String Quartet, The Dale Warland Singers, The Denver Young Artists Orchestra, and San Francisco's Volti.

Most recently, Hanks has been commissioned to compose a new work for the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic Orchestra. Under the direction of Lawrence Loh, the orchestral work will premiere in Spring 2007 to celebrate the orchestra's thirty-fifth anniversary. Hanks is also working on a new oratorio, The Tegel Passion, a composition for tenor, chorus, and orchestra, and setting the poetry of Dietrich Bonhoeffer to music.
