About Anna Burch

Creating lo-fi indie rock with mischievous lyrics delivered with deceptively bittersweet vocals, Anna Burch is an American alternative singer/songwriter from Detroit, Michigan. She developed a taste for the arts early on with an affinity for Disney songs during her childhood years and the work of Fiona Apple in her teens. Burch covered songs by the latter at open-mike nights and by the age of 18 she was recording and touring with her first band, Frontier Ruckus. She eventually went on to share lead vocal duties in the Ann Arbor-based Failed Flowers. It was during this time that Anna began to pen her own material. After a brief hiatus from music while she attended graduate school in Chicago, she returned to songwriting in Detroit in 2014. Her own songs had begun to take on more shape and structure, with friends on the scene encouraging Burch to assemble a live band to begin performing the demo ideas she had. With her ever-changing ideas, Anna eventually began to perform solo shows with a fully realized backing band. Her first official release was an eponymous split single with fellow Detroit artist Stef Chura in early 2016. The singer began earning comparisons to artists like Waxahatchee and Courtney Barnett before fellow Michigan-based musician Fred Thomas sent some of her demos to his label, Polyvinyl. This led to the attention of producer/engineer Collin Dupuis (Lana Del Rey, Angel Olsen), who offered to help mix her songs. The result consisted of nine songs that became Burch's debut album, Quit the Curse. The record saw release via Polyvinyl in early 2018. ~ Rob Wacey
