Anna Nalick

Opening act Dan Godlin

Thursday, November 21
8pm $21

Anna Nalick is a platinum selling singer and songwriter from California. In addition to writing all of her own music, Anna has been writing for other artists since the age of 15.

Starting in 2005, Anna released her first studio produced album, entitled: Wreck of the Day, featuring the hit single “Breathe (2AM)” under the SonyMusic label. The song propelled to the top of the charts and sent Anna on a nearly four year tour around the world. Featuring her third hit single “Shine,” Anna and SonyMusic released The Shine EP.” Both Wreck of the Day and The Shine EP can still be heard widely on radio and television today, with “Breathe” being featured twice on the hit television drama “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Wanting to pursue a musical style free of label influence, Anna decided to part ways with SonyMusic in 2010 and in 2011, released her first independently produced album: Broken Doll & Odds & Ends. Anna describes the album as: “mostly acoustic with haunting and unusual instrumentation. I wanted to release the songs I wrote while I was with Sony before I move on to all new material. I liked the songs too much to just leave them all behind. Now I’m ready to explore new territory.”

Utilizing the unique sounds of toy piano, sitar, glockenspiel, oud, mandocello and sweeping string arrangements, Broken Doll & Odds & Ends features a wide range of instruments, performed by a very talented collection of musicians. Anna’s unique storytelling ability and timeless sense of melody has gained even more notoriety with fans, selling over 30,000 copies during the album’s first month.

Presently, Anna is dedicating the majority of her time to writing for her next project. Unlike the acoustic feel of “Broken Doll & Odds & Ends,” Anna’s next album will be an electric collection of songs, featuring a full band and a bigger sound than previously produced.
