Anna and her family fled communist Poland for Sweden in 1979, leaving their familiar lives, family and friends behind, and ultimately settled in Canada. Sixteen years ago, Anna moved to sunny California because of love!
She is a former lawyer and stay-at-home mom who at the age of 43 reinvented herself when she turned to singing as a way to find her voice and to change her life when the love is her life was no more. She is now a successful singer, author, speaker and producer. She produces private and public events as well as produces Jazz on Cedros a sophisticated musical happy hour that is celebrating sold-out shows since its inception last year. In addition, Anna just fulfilled another dream by recording her second full-length jazz album at the iconic Capitol Studios in Hollywood, which will be released in early 2016 and is already gathering critical acclaim.
Her music is based in the classics, the jazz standards we all love and grew up on, the music of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole. But she’s also taken modern songs and arranged them for jazz. And recently, Anna started writing her own standards! The new album contains half original songs, which are Anna’s stories!
