Anna has always enjoyed sharing her sound in groups, first playing with local band 'Jug in Hand', before recording their album 'Skullduggery and Prose' in 1999. Anna next enjoyed a short stint with the band KILT, before beginning full-time studies at St. Francis Xavier University. Before graduating in 2005, along with solo gigs, she enjoyed playing with Maritime bands Barnacle and Banshee.
Since joining DRUM!, a critically acclaimed Halifax-based group and two-time ECMA nominee, Anna has launched a professional music career. In 2005, she gave an electrifying performance, opening for, and playing with, the Beach Boys, winners of a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 Grammy Award ceremony. Further showcasing her talents at the East Coast Music Awards in both 2005 and 2006 as a solo artist, she also graced the ECMA mainstage in 2006 with DRUM! Anna has enjoyed national and international travel, sharing the stage with performers such as Sam Roberts, Blue Rodeo, Ron Hynes, and Buddy MacMaster. Anna released her debut album, Reel to Reel, in March 2009.
Reel to Reel was produced by Dave Burton and mixed and mastered at ECMA-winning Lakewind Sound Studios. Featuring the talents of Fred Lavery, Scott MacMillan, Dave MacIsaac, Wendy MacIsaac, David Burton and Jamie Gatti, this funky celtic album, combines Cape Breton-style fiddle with edgy contributions from drums, bass, piano, pipes and guitar. The standout track 'Weeping Willow Tree' gives us a glimpse of Anna's immense vocal talents. A fiddle instructor for almost ten years, Anna enjoys working with fiddle students of all skill levels. Anna currently lives in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, where she recently showcased her talent at the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, as well as other local venues.
She is playing and promoting her new album around the province, and looks forward to her 2009 Canadian tour with DRUM!.
