Anna Mae is a singer and songwriter born 1990 in Switzerland. Music has always been an important part of her life, spending all her time on singing and writing songs. Anna Mae tries herself out in different genres in order to keep discovering new facets of herself. But what her heart is absolutely beating for is: Folk, Country & Chanson Française.
"Tina Turner, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Michael Bolton as well as Michel Sardou and Edith Piaf are artists I get inspired of and I deeply admire their work." - Anna Mae
In her schooldays - spending 4 years in France - Anna Mae made her first concrete music experiences such as singing in a school band, playing the guitar & flute, taking singing lessons, constantly appearing on several concerts and competitions. Later on Anna Mae started to gig as a solo performer accompanying her voice with an acoustic guitar. That's when she slowly started to establish herself as a solo artist in Switzerland (2010).
"A great opportunity for me was to open for Bastian Baker in Lucerne, Switzerland or to sing with Deborah Allen on the occasion of a Country music festival in Switzerland." - Anna Mae
Next step (2012-13) for Anna Mae was to more concentrate on music and singing in order to understand and learn deeper about it. Therefor she attended a vocal diploma course in London at BIMM University (former Tech Music School). She used this year not only for training but also for networking and gigging in the city.
Back in Switzerland, where Anna Mae is living, she's back on stage performing and writing songs. She is booked as a solo artist or together with her two fellow musicians Roli Stadelmann (bass) & Gabriel Yaacoub (guitar).
"I get a kick out of singing and performing because it's the way to express myself and to show what lies inside of me. I think that music is a language that can be understood by everyone on this planet and can bring people together." - Anna Mae
This is what she's aiming for: bringing people together with the strength of music. Anna Mae is full of energy and motivated indeed to follow the way in order to achieve her high set goals. Having quit her job in the office by 2016, Anna Mae is one of the most hard working professionals in the music business committing herself 100% to the music.
Her debut EP "Let It Roll" has been released in late autumn 2016. It's consisting of 4 original songs recorded and produced by Tobi Gmür in Switzerland. Anna Mae's first video clip featuring the track "Don't Go Away" came out in early 2017, it has been shooted by Gango Luege, Lucerne. Furthermore, Anna Mae could release a video production with BalconyTV Zurich, appear as a guest singer on stage or in the studio for several artists, and in 2018 absolved her first official music tour in North America (Midwest USA & Toronto Canada).
