Anna Vogelzang


"The Wisconsin troubadour has a penchant for playfulness when it comes to her music; however, when she gets serious, few craft a better folk song." - The Huffington Post Anna Vogelzang, unavoidably soulful singer/songwriter and newly-transplanted Midwesterner sings the best kind of songs, the ones about feelings. Her latest full-length venture, Canary in a Coal Mine, was created completely through fan funding and is being independently released on September 20, 2011. Read more on Last.fm
"The Wisconsin troubadour has a penchant for playfulness when it comes to her music; however, when she gets serious, few craft a better folk song." - The Huffington Post Anna Vogelzang, unavoidably soulful singer/songwriter and newly-transplanted Midwesterner sings the best kind of songs, the ones about feelings. Her latest full-length venture, Canary in a Coal Mine, was created completely through fan funding and is being independently released on September 20, 2011. Amongst the album's cast of professional musicians are Brian Viglione (the Dresden Dolls) on drums, Todd Sickafoose (Righteous Babe) on upright bass, Franz Nicolay (the Hold Steady) on accordion, Emily Hope Price (Pearl & the Beard) on cello. Featuring up-beat, robust crowd-favorites "Die Trying" and "Heart Beat Faster", the album has also been called Vogelzang's riskiest venture to date, toting sweet love songs on kalimba & ukulele, a girl group stomp-and-clap summery singalong, a rip roaring barroom bluegrass tune, banjo dirges of pining sincerity, and a haunting piece featuring only a cello quintet and voice.

Anna will be touring nationally in the fall of 2011 in support this new project. After releasing her college thesis as a CD in 2007 and following up with home recordings that sold out of their handmade sleeves, Anna released her 5th album, Paper Boats, in April 2010. The widely recognized album was met with invitations to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and National Women's Music Festival Emerging Artist Stages, as well as receiving play on over 200 radio stations nation-wide. Vogelzang has shared stages with Regina Spektor, Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady), Mirah (K Recs), Wye Oak (Merge Records), Deer Tick, Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projecters), Amanda Palmer, Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), and a laundry list of other friends and mentors. She also spent some quality time performing as a vocalist with The Dresden Dolls, notably at Lollapalooza 2006 & on NPR's World Cafe. Based in Madison WI, Anna has been on 11 DIY tours since 2008 and is probably on tour right now.

Anna is a member of ASCAP. 2010 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist 2010 National Women's Music Festival - Talent Competition Winner 2010 Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase - Honorable Mention 2010 Madison's Favorite Folk/Bluegrass Act - Bronze January 2010 Madison Songwriter Showdown Winner ("Guilt") "Her voice will blanket you with awe... Do whatever you can to see her live." - The Deli Magazine "Pittsburgh's indie-folk scene said goodbye to one of its brightest singer-songwriters when Anna Vogelzang took off for Chicago." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “Anna Vogelzang is one of the promising young female artists who puts her money where her mouth is. This girl won’t stop until she gets the attention she deserves, and believe me, she deserves it." – Amanda Palmer, The Dresden Dolls "Take a song like "Judy Garland", in which Vogelzang invokes the mistress of Oz in vocals more frank than Dame DiFranco, then namechecks Nina Simone and Ginger Rogers. But don't call her sexist; she knows her Neil Young, and plays the occasional Iron & Wine cover like a nice, smoky cabernet." - C-Ville, Charlottesville, VA "Combine sweet, early-jazz warbling, classic female singer-songwriter acoustics, girl-with-a-guitar aesthetics, and indie-folk quirk (imagine Kimya Dawson if she could really sing) with a dash of slightly angsty girl-rock (Ani DiFranco if she’d mellow out), and you’ll have an inkling of the unique style cultivated by vocalist Anna Vogelzang." - Brick Weekly, Richmond, VA Read more on Last.fm.
