Artist - Anna Lee
Ok here goes, I grew up in Dublin, Ireland, in a very musical household (my father being a violin teacher!) moved to maynooth to become the much loved stereotypical arts student (studying music . . . and beer!) for two years.
It was there that I first performed at the NUIM singer songwriter night hosted by Paddy Curley (thank you bren!). It was at this s/s that I met many talented musicians such as Kevin and Ebby Brett, Catherine Ferris and Anthony Kelly. Moved down to Galway for a year to write music and busk for a living! performing regularly at the Monroes and Warwick singer songwriter nights hosted by Kevin Brett.
During this time I also performed at Scribblers wine bar/cafe both as a solo act and in a jazz duo with Ebby Brett. I then moved to Sydney where I played regularly in venues such as The Vic on the Park, Kellys on King and The Marquee and i also recorded my album full of lots of luverly sad and depressing musics while eating pie.
now . . . i'm back in galway helping to run People In The Moon Records Ltd. with the afore-mentioned Brett brothers and gigging around Galway in places such as De Burgos, Richardsons, the Rowing Club, the Cellar, the Roisín Dubh, and BK's Wine Bar. I also have gigs coming up in Dublin so watch out for them!
Every so often, I'm lucky enough to support Cuckoo Savante. They're a fantastic band, do check them out if you see them playing around Galway.
