Icelandic singer/songwriter, Anna Claessen has been singing since she was a young child. It wasn´t until she moved to Vienna, Austria where a jam with talented pianist Julian Ruths sparked her interest in creating her own material. After a successful concert at her college graduation, she knew she wanted to create music for a living. After this epiphany, Anna decided to move to L.A. to fulfill her childhood dream.
Claessen shares a vocal style similar to Mandy Moore, but has created her own sound by incorporating musical styles akin to American artists from the 50s and 60s. Claessen released a Promo EP on http://annaclaessen.bandcamp.com, which donations were used to get to her sisters wedding.
Claessen is currently the lead singer of Anna and the Bells, www.annaandthebells.com
