Anna Smyrk

With a voice described as ‘truly astonishing’ by Rolling Stone, Anna Smyrk is a powerful singer and songwriter from Australia. Her songs are indie-pop bombshells, pairing vulnerable lyrics with explosive arrangements and undeniable hooks.

2024 has already been a huge year for Anna, with highlights including official showcases at SXSW (Austin, Texas) and touring the US for the first time.

Anna’s recent EP was recorded in Nashville with award-winning producers Jake Finch and Collin Pastore (boygenius, Lucy Dacus). The record explores themes of fight or flight, the push and pull of relationships. She’s toured widely around Australia and Europe, supporting artists like Birds of Tokyo, Tim Rogers, Ash Grunwald and Bachelor Girl and performing at festivals such as Port Fairy and Woodford.

In 2024 Anna has been showcasing and performing at international festivals and events including NXNE (Canada), Folk Alliance International (USA) and Live at Heart (Sweden). On the back of this success, she signed with booking agents in 3 territories (Onya Soapbox in Australia, ROLA Music in Europe and Black Oak Artists in North America) and embarked on a 17-date tour of Germany and Sweden and a 15-date tour in Canada.

Described by Backseat Mafia UK as “a significant songwriter with an exceptional voice,” Anna Smyrk is a formidable artist on the rise.

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, Europe and the US and is set to make a splash over the Australian Festival Summer with the launch of her first album.
