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.

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.
