It didn’t even have a real chorus…just one streaming thought, but it summed up the album perfectly. And now all these folks in Taiwan are tweeting me telling me it touched their hearts.” The trailer can be viewed on YouTube. After four years of independently writing and recording her songs from her home-town, alongside producer and friend, Ryan Swift, Lee Anna Culp made her move to Nashville in May of 2011. Since the move, she’s been spotted at countless Nashville-style writer’s rounds and is a featured artist on local radio show “Real Life Real Music, Songwriter Feature Series.” Lee Anna has also been doing some traveling, playing everywhere from the Room 5 in Los Angeles all the way back to the Basement in Nashville. “Being in Nashville should count as a second degree in music. As long as you’re willing to set your ego aside and realize you’re one of thousands, you can learn so much about yourself as an artist here.
I’ve written so many new songs just through the experience and changes.” She has stayed true to her own style and song-writing techniques, even though Nashville is sometimes known for it’s “sound” and co-writing. “I have a point of view. It’s my own. And I think that’s half the beauty of any kind of art. I don’t want to be closed minded to other people’s input, but I want to stay true to who I am and what I have to say, even if it’s not perfect.
Imitating what’s trendy just makes you fit in, not stand out.” For the year of 2012 Lee Anna is releasing an entire album’s worth of free music from her website and Facebook page– one single a month from the new album entitled the Brandywine Project. “Each of these songs means something really special to me.” She laughingly added, “by the end of the year, anyone who wants it will have a little piece of my heart. For free.” Her other releases, Words & Actions Fists & Distractions, Bells and Doves and Beggars are all available through her website. www.leeannaculp.com www.facebook.com/leeannarocks https://twitter.com/leeannarocks http://www.youtube.com/user/LeeAnnaCulp Read more on Last.fm.
