Anna studied classical violin and sang in a church choir growing up, but now plays popular styles, as well. She graduated from Columbia University and is working on her Ph.D. in Historical Musicology at New York University.
Anna keeps quite busy with musical endeavors. She can be found playing for various live performances (both popular and classical) around NYC, recording violin and vocals for original artists and projects, leading worship at Stanwich Congregational Church, and teaching violin and voice.
I met Anna a few years ago while on tour in Connecticut. A couple years later, I was on tour in New Hampshire and had a chance to record the pump organ heard on “Bring Me All The Way Home.” Since I was heading to Philly and knew I would be passing through Connecticut, I thought it would be really nice to have Anna play violin on that song. It was a long shot, since Anna is almost always booked and I only had one day that could possibly work. I contacted Anna and luckily my free day was the only day she had free as well.
