Anna Mae is a singer and songwriter born 1990 in Switzerland. Music has always been a part of her life, spending all her time on singing, writing and composing. Anna Mae tried herself out in different styles and genres - that's what she actually still does in order to get the most creativity out of her - but her heart is beating especially for country, folk, and french chanson music.
"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 her school band, playing the guitar & flute, singing lessons, 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.
"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 festival in Switzerland." - Anna Mae
Next step for Anna Mae was to concentrate more on music and singing in order to understand and learn more about it. Therefor she attended a vocal diploma course in London at Tech Music Schools (today: BIMM British & Irish Modern Music Institute). 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 her songs. She is booked as a solo artist or with a band, always depending on the event and the organizer.
"I get a kick out of singing and performing because it's my way to express what lies inside of me. And I think that music is a language on earth that can be understood by everyone and can bring people together." - Anna Mae
This is what she's aiming for: bringing people together with her music. Anna Mae is full of energy to follow her musical way in order to achieve her high set goals - creating songs and melodies for the world, performing them live on stage, recording albums and collaborating with diverse artists.
Anna Mae's first EP "Let It Roll", consisting of 4 of her original songs, has been released in late autumn 2016. It was recorded and produced by Tobi Gmür (SUI) and mastered by Marco Jencarelli (SUI). The EP shows all of the artist's potential in terms of singing and songwriting. The first video clip came out in early 2017, featuring her song "Don't Go Away", this video production was a collaboration with Gango Luege, Lucerne (SUI).
