A Story That Breathes Sound
Anna was born with music in her soul.
She started playing the piano at age 3 and playing the guitar soon followed.
By the time she was 14, she was starting to write her own music. “when you
grow up in a small town in southern Wisconsin there isn’t much to do. Music
was my escape".
After countless family picnic, church performances and local singing contest
wins, it was time for something bigger. Anna was growing restless. The world
Interscope Records showed interest in Anna soon after she arrived in LA age
16. They had their eyes set on her becoming the world’s next pop superstar.
She started writing and recording with many notable writers and producers of
the time, successfully getting her music placed on MTV.
While things went well, they weren’t exactly going the way she envisioned. So
after 4 years she hit the reset button and followed her gut to get her college
degree. She wanted to expand her knowledge of the music industry. She
studied Music Business at Augsburg University, completing her degree in
London, England while she worked for a record label, LoMax Records.
But once her degree was completed, life managed to take over and music
slowly took a backseat. “I felt like a part of me was dying and I wasn’t sure
how to start the fire again”.
It took a global pandemic to clear the way for her to find time for her passion
During Covid she refocused on writing. Influenced by Brothers Osborne and
The Black Keys she developed a new breed of country rock, creating her own
signature sound of hard-charging rock sensibility with a country soul.
Anna has released her new songs and sound in a demo project called “Restless
Spirit” An apropos title for that little girl from southern Wisconsin who didn’t let
the world get between her and her music.
