With a voice described as ‘truly astonishing’ by Rolling Stone, Anna Smyrk is a powerful singer and songmaker from Naarm (Melbourne, Australia). Her songs are anthemic indie bombshells, pairing vulnerable lyrics with explosive arrangements and undeniable hooks.
The last 12 months have been massive for Anna, with highlights including supporting Birds of Tokyo and Tim Rogers, touring North America and Europe, official showcases at NXNE (Canada), Folk Alliance International (USA) and Live at Heart (Sweden) and recording a new EP in Nashville with award-winning producers Jake Finch and Collin Pastore (Lucy Dacus). Listen now.
The first single from the new record, ‘I Don’t Want to Meet Your Mother.’ was added to Apple Music’s New Indie playlist across multiple territories and ‘The Runner’ was added to MTV in Germany.
Her 2021 EP, a collection of long-distance love songs, cemented her reputation as ‘a significant songwriter with an exceptional voice’ (Backseat Mafia UK). Singles from the EP were added to rotation on Double J and MTV and described as ‘soul-stirring’ by Triple J.
With her all-star band- Alex Burkoy (Tinpan Orange), Holly Thomas (Quivers, Husky) and Loz Irwin Ray (Belly Savalas)- Anna has toured widely throughout Australia and this summer has seen her gracing stages at Port Fairy Folk Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.
