International songstress Anna Pancaldi is set to burst back on to the scene this spring as she releases her highly anticipated third EP ‘Sweet Charity’ (released on 20th March). With heavyweight support from both BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2, the new EP is the third release for the London-based artist, already a veteran, with three iTunes Top Tens under her belt.
A gripping and tremendous evolution from her first two releases, ‘Sweet Charity’ is preceded by haunting new single ‘Brother’, a mesmerizingly honest performance stripped back to piano and vocal. Yet Anna’s voice is unmistakable in it’s depth and emotion, which draws you in, in a way few can.
Drawing inspiration from the rich lyrical honesty of Carole King, Jeff Buckley and Joni Mitchell and the theatrical sincerity of Judy Garland and David Bowie, Anna is an artist whose depth of emotion hits you right at your very core. With the timeless magic of the greats echoing throughout her work, Anna is an artist whose work shines brightly.
Having sold out her last three London headline shows, Anna has enjoyed success in both the UK and US, where she made her US live TV debut on CBS. She also enjoyed an extended collaboration with Levi’s,
for whom she penned a song for their Lot 700 jeans collection and featured in the accompanying advert.
Her single ‘Keep On Keeping On’ has been playlisted by British Airways for their Unsigned Music Awards curated playlist, meaning the song will be on every British Airways flight in 2017!
Live performances included Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Cambridge Folk Festival as well as supporting Prides, Bryde, Seafret, Paper Aeroplanes, and most recently Jake Isaac on his European tour.
Simple and elegantly performed, ‘Brother’ is a truly unforgettable piece of music, with lyrics exploring the heart-breaking reality of loss. Vocally, Anna performs way beyond her years with an emotional depth that’s destined to move hearts and minds. She is most certainly One To Watch in 2017.
Anna launches ‘Sweet Charity’ with a performance at The Victoria, London on March 22nd 2017.
