Anna Wilson is a critically acclaimed jazz recording artist and songwriter whose timeless, sophisticated sound is juxtaposed by her stunningly contemporary voice and message. Jazz Times says, “She’s got a voice like crème de cacao and an inner metronome that swings wildly from age to age.”
She has shared concert billings with many top acts such as Josh Groban, Boz Scaggs, Al Jarreau, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Keith Urban, and The Mississippi Mass Choir to name a few. In addition, she performs regularly at jazz festivals and exclusive wine events like the Napa Valley and Naples Wine Auction, the Grand Ole Opry, as well as intimate acoustic performances at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café and similar venues around the country.
After a twenty year recording career and five studio albums, this dynamic and diverse songbird has more to sing about than just jazz. She is currently co-producing another special project alongside her producer/songwriter husband, Monty Powell, that will highlight various country and pop artists as they re-imagine the songs of one of the finest singer/songwriters of our time, the great Billy Joel. In addition to her diverse recording career as a jazz artist, Wilson is an award winning ASCAP songwriter whose compositions appear on over seven million RIAA certified albums. Over the years, she has penned songs for Reba McEntire, Brooks & Dunn, Billy Ray Cyrus, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Cagle, Chuck Wicks and others, while continuing to write for up and coming young artists in pop, country and jazz and on the American Idol circuit.
Anna is expected to release her new album Jazzbird/Songbird in 2015.
