Anna St. Louis
Anna St Louis grew up in Kansas, but made her home in Los Angeles some 5 years ago and learnt herself how to play guitar. With her apt titled debut EP ‘First Songs’, she took her listeners on a journey in search of her own sound.
But on her first album, which came out in October, she sounds like a singer-songwriter not to be messed with. With the help of Kevin Morby and Kyle Thomas (King Tuff), who produced her record, St. Louis serves her intimate folksongs with a slice of blues and some psychedelica on the side.
“St. Louis has learned to say so much with so little, suggesting the kind of keen aesthetic awareness that some songwriters burn through years, producers, studios, and labels trying to develop.”
