Anna May

Anna May

Alternative tragic Americana, invocations for peace & judgment reshaping with bleeding heart stream of consciousness poems.

Originally from Connecticut, before becoming a western transplant, Anna May is a singular artist whose songs bear a placelessness that lends to their timeless nature.

The deep exploration of heartbreak and trauma has been an ongoing quest throughout Anna's work.

Her lyrics have been heavily textured by a lonesome whimsicality that finds itself most at home in the vastness of the American West.

Anna's music honors the nomadic spirit with memory, meditation & fresh interpretations of folk music and jazz influence. She honors a hope to enhance connection, humility, healing, and joy among people in the process of parting with typical genre rules.

Anna's lyrical sensibility is steeped in wisdom, and layered with evocative musicality and metaphysical embroidery while eschewing the mainstream & parting with platitudes. Anna explores both estrangement and connection while taking cues from artists like Billie Holiday, Shawn Colvin, Neil Young, and Leonard Cohen.

As a yogi, pianist, teacher & poet, she masterfully blends all of her influences into her songwriting.

Anna has performed at wildflower music & arts festival, treefort music festival, boston arts festival, water lantern festival, trout lake hall, abbey arts in seattle, Globe Hall in Denver, Salesforce Tower in San Francisco, Broadway Comedy Club in Manhattan, the Mint in Los Angeles, and many more.
