MORE IS MORE! Anna has been described by renowned Jazz Drummer, Keith Copeland as a "tremendous talent". Juno Award winner Rick Kilburn described her vocal ability as "just like the old masters". But no one sings like Anna! With a distinct retro quality, Anna brings a new dimension to modern jazz vocals. Anna's lush vocals go straight to the heart whether she swings or broods over a ballad. She touches listeners to the HEARTBEAT.
There are a lot of singers out there, Shirley Horn, Blossom Dearie... (long list) Some of them have phrasing, some of them have tone, some can swing, YOU HAVE IT ALL! (Keith Copeland, 2003)
Anna Lyman was born to a Latin American Father and a Scotch/Irish/English Mother in Michigan. She studied guitar and writes both vocal and instrumental music. One of her own compositions "If You'll Turn Back" appears on "It's Lush".
Being Latin, she also writes and performs a lot of Latin jazz. Club Audiences don't want to leave the club while she is singing! Lots of stage appeal too.
