Debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Charts!
Well, it's no surprise that this album debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Charts! Solana Beach California Anna Danes is the real deal - this is a great album!
Bottomless emotional expression!
Touching story of self-discovery and self-actualisation. Thank you for sharing and giving others the courage and resolve to find their inner-strength too! You can feel the sadness in WHEN YOU WERE MY KING. The vocal echoes in the beginning are haunting. I really enjoyed the minimalist rhythms in the drum kit and the timbre of the double bass. There is nothing but romance in the air in THAT’S ALL, with a beguiling duet telling the story of how powerful simplicity and humility is in matters of the love. MR. OMG is marvellously cheeky and flirty! A very inspiring musical journey!
About Anna Danes
California-based singer Anna Danes is lyrical performer known for her sophisticated take on jazz standards. Born in Gdansk, Poland, Danes fled the then-communist country as a child, first to Sweden and finally to Ottawa, Canada. She grew up singing in church, and discovered jazz in her teens. Although music was a passion, Danes initially focused her attention on attending the University of Ottawa on a scholarship for ancient history and archaeology. She then went on to earn her law degree at the University of Windsor, after which she practiced for several years. Upon marrying, Danes relocated to Southern California where she worked as an operations manager in her husband's business while raising a family. It wasn't until winning vocal lessons in a local auction that Danes' teacher recognized her dormant talents. Encouraged, she began seriously pursuing a vocal career, and in 2013 she released her debut album Longing. In 2016, Danes returned with her sophomore full-length album, Find Your Wings. ~ Matt Collar
