Anna Wrasse has been writing and performing original songs since age 11. She has been playing piano since age 6, picked up the guitar at age 10, and recently started studying violin and playing in her high school orchestra. Anna is passionate about the way music is able to connect everyone and bring people together. With her songs she hopes to tell stories of her personal experiences in a relatable way that is meaningful to others. Anna was honored to win the 2016 youth division Ferdinand Folk Festival Singer-Songwriter competition and the 2016 Kiwanis Idol competition. In 2017 Anna won the Jasper Strassenfest Guitar Pull and was again invited to perform at the Ferdinand Folk Festival. In 2016 (solo) and 2017 (with Phillip Hammond on violin) Anna performed half hour live radio broadcasts on WFHB’s “Local Live” show, featuring all original songs. In January 2018 Anna was recognized as “One to Watch” by Nashville Songwriting Association International.
Anna released “At Night”, her first EP of original music, in 2016. She is currently recording all new music to release a full length CD entitled “To You” in spring 2018. In 2017 Anna released her new song “Temporary Home” on an EP with a few songs from “At Night”. Anna was very fortunate to have Phillip Hammond do some beautiful violin work on “Temporary Home” (vocal and instrumental versions) and is excited to feature Phillip on many songs on her forthcoming CD as well. Thank you for listening.
