“"I am releasing the background music to my life's story.”
— Anea Michelle
With a jaw dropping voice and a deep collection of soul-searching songs, Austin based singer/songwriter Anea Michelle is making a name for herself in Texas and beyond. Her seamless blend of R&B, Soul, and Jazz transcends genre to bring out the beauty of everyday life experiences.
Anea has always been surrounded by music. Born in Chicago, she literally grew up in recording studios, where she dutifully studied the craft of songwriting. As her confidence grew, she began writing and performing around the city, developing the commanding stage presence that is now a core part of her appeal. Relocating to Maryland for high school and college, she continued honing her abilities on stage and in the studio, eventually resulting in her debut single, ‘Late.’
Written to celebrate her wedding day, ‘Late’ is the perfect song to introduce Anea to the world. With its jazzy instrumentals providing a backdrop to her vocal virtuosity, ‘Late’ is already making waves with critics. The Bandcamp Diaries praised Anea’s “stunning voice” and her ability to “connect with listeners on an emotional level.”
With another new single ('Minivans and Microphones') and a debut album on the way, Anea is committed to using her music as a form of positive energy. “My music is a celebration of my life,” she explains. “The good and the good enough. It’s a celebration of the natural human voice with its flaws and all. It’s also a celebration of confidence. The confidence to be… and I really hope that’s contagious.”
