Atelier ...

by Anna Mae

Hi there,

To be honest, I can’t wait to board the plane. My aim is to write new songs, establish my international network, and work on my future plans as a professional musician. I feel privileged to get this very chance thanks to Sister Cities Luzern-Chicago. As some of you may already know, I will soon leave Switzerland and head to Chicago IL. The organization mentioned above is giving me the opportunity to fully commit myself to music. The atelier project will start early December 2022 and will last for 4 months. I couldn't be happier to get this very chance!

I never quit the countryside for a very long time. Although I had spent time in London, being on the road playing concerts, or taking a trip to Toronto to sing for Canadian Music Week, my heart always needs to come back to the roots. Today I still live in Lucerne’s hinterland, surrounded by fields of green, cows (and cowbells), and we do even look up to a hill with an ancient castle on top.

I am very determined and do have clear visions. My passion and love for country music, folk, rock and french chanson has brought me to many different places. And now there’s midwest’s Chicago I’m travelling to. I couldn’t ask for more. I’m grateful indeed for having quit my job back in 2016 as a secretary striving to become independent and work as a professional singer and songwriter, for over six years now. I try to be ‘artist’ and business woman at the same time; which is quite a bit of a challenge sometimes. But it’s also a dream come true.

However, music means everything to me. The singing and songwriting is a thing that I absolutely need to do in my life. It is my aim to spread love and positive energy all around the planet, to be the best I can be, and to contribute my part to make this world a better place.

Believe in your dreams, try to be the best you can be, and never stop learning.

Save the date 27 April 2023 / 8pm.

My best, Anna Mae
