Anna Mae is a singer and songwriter born 1990 in Switzerland. Music has always been an important part of her life. The singing started in her childhood, the writing in her teens. Anna Mae stands for an authentic, emotional and intimate concert experience. With songs going from Folk and Country over to 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 of them in France - Anna Mae made her first music experiences like singing in a school band, playing the guitar & flute, taking singing lessons and appearing on stage on a regular base. Later on Anna Mae started to gig as a solo performer by 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 fully 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 particular year not only for training but also for networking and gigging in the area.
Back in Switzerland, where Anna Mae is living, she's again on stage performing and writing songs. She is booked either as a solo artist or with her band and is taking so much pleasure in sharing her music with the audience.
"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 music is a language that can be understood by everyone on this planet and has the energy to 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 motivation to go her own way in order to achieve her goals and make the world a little bit better with what she's doing. Having quit her secretary job by 2016, Anna Mae is one of the hardest working professionals in the music business committing herself 100% to the music.
Her debut EP "Let It Roll" has been released in 2016. It consists 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 produced by Gango Luege, Lucerne. Furthermore, Anna Mae could release a video with BalconyTV Zurich, appear as a guest singer on stage or in the studio for several artists, and in 2018 absolved her first music tour in North America (Midwest USA & showcase at Canadian Music Week, Toronto Canada). Finally, in late 2018 Anna Mae has released another single that's called "River", a duett with swiss country singer Chrigel Zenger.
