Age: 23
Based: Glasgow
Hey Anna! So let’s tell our readers when you decided you wanted to pursue a career within the ever so daunting music industry?
“I decided I wanted to pursue music at around the age of 15 years old. That was the age I started playing guitar and writing songs. I played piano and sang from a young age, but it took until I was 17 until I was confident enough to go out and perform my own material. “
Describe your sound to anyone who hasn’t heard it before?
“I would say a little like Taylor Swift, HAIM, or Imogen Heap.”

What inspires your songs? (Are you a total Taylor Swift singing about relationships or do you prefer to sing about other topics?)
“I’m a total Taylor Swift. I grew up on her music from my early teens… always been a huge fan! But, naturally I write from my heart. If you do me wrong, you get a song… It’s how I deal with relationships. Songwriting is cathartic!”
You self-produce your music, tell us a bit more about the process? How do you piece a song together?
“Ahhhh, this is completely different for every song! But, for a lot of them I can hear production in my head as soon as I write lyrics. I can hear what I want, and then go into my home studio and do my best to emulate that sound. Sometimes it’s trial and error!┬áThere’s about four different versions of one song off my album – ‘Wind and Fire”… But the album version is my favourite!”
So Anna, what’s the goals for the rest of 2018?
“I would love to get in the studio to pro-produce and really just keep creating more music! I want to play some festivals, tour, grow my fan base and of course I have released my debut album!”
We’re behind you Anna! Keep doing your thing girl!┬áCheck out Anna Sweeney’s debut album: GAME FACE
