Singer, SONGWRITER & MUSIC PRODUCER
Los Angeles, CA
Anna Awe is a singer, keyboardist, DJ and music producer whose sound blends pop/rock songwriting with the latest technology. Her music is at the forefront of a new movement that emphasizes the DIY artist/producer and the artist’s ability to independently express their imagination and vision through music without heavy reliance on an established ‘system’ or ‘industry’. Her work is heavily supported by the house/EDM scene as well as online, indie and underground radio stations. As a singer, she has collaborated with several top producers to release singles on labels such as Catch 22 and Road Story Records.
Summer 2021 will be a breakout moment for Anna as she will finally assemble all of her knowledge and experience to produce and release a record every two weeks. She has now reached a level where she is confident to share her work with the world.
Anna first started singing rock music as a child, and continued to sing in bands for the next few years, while cultivating a talent for songwriting. She composed songs for her bands on the piano, and taught each musician the part in person. Her unique sound eventually landed her gigs around the country at famed venues including the Viper Room. After attending electronic music festivals around the world, Anna developed a keen interest in electronic music. She bought her first hardware synth in 2008, and began to learn how to produce music in programs such as Logic and Ableton.
Anna’s original plan was to use DAWs to self-produce demos to send to labels, but ultimately she enjoyed music production so much that she began to produce her own records and incorporate electronic music into her sound for both live performances and studio records.
She spent the following years in NYC and LA honing her poetic voice and electronic artistry. Under the mentorship of top engineers and Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, she learned how to apply the latest technologies creatively in the music making process.
After formally studying music production from 2018-2019, in 2019 she began to produce and release the songs she had written over the past decade. Additionally, she began working professionally as an open-format DJ for clubs and private events. This better acquainted her with current music trends as well as the DIY DJ/Producer approach. What followed were a series of independent releases such as “See My Light” and “Unbelievable” that received FM and online radio play in countries such as the U.S., the UK, and Mexico.
Anna’s work then attracted the attention of electronic music labels Catch 22 and Road Story Records, where she teamed up as a singer with top level producers to release “The Sweetest Sound” and “Believe in Someone”.
