Everyone who hears Anna von Hausswolff sing, immediately stops, listens and gets touched by her magic.
Her voice is that of total expression. Sometimes it caresses you, sometimes it roars up a storm; but it always finds a very special place in your heart. The voice perfectly combines total knowledge with a wild and natural feeling, reality with romance.
Would You like to compare it with something from real life? Immediately book a visit to the most spectacular views that Mother nature has to offer, the Angel falls for example - or pay a visit to the Choir of Angels in where Joan As A Police Woman and Anony Hegarty is singing.Anna has a new album, Ceremony, being released in two weeks. Personally I can't wait.
