Anna Ash is a Michigan-born musician who now operates from Los Angeles and has been making her way for many years. On stage she drinks whiskey, she produces her records herself and her voice is a mix of Kate Bush, Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams. She covered the latter, with whom she also has some musical resemblance, Righteously and that became a mini-hit.
On her new album 'Sleeper' she has opted for a richer production with keys, choirs, horns and pedal steel. However, the eleven self-written songs are still all Ash. Also because of the never cheerful theme and the sometimes frightening music, this is folk noir, like no one else makes. It makes 'Sleeper' an unparalleled album.
