RECENTLY returned from a US tour, Essex born Anna Pancaldi describes herself as a ‘gutsy, melodic singer-songwriter’. Her new single, Keep On Keeping On, proves this instantly with its stripped back intro, allowing Pancaldi to show off those gutsy and melodic vocals. The song then spirals through waves of beautiful melodies and acoustic rhythmic guitar patterns.
Anna explained her inspiration behind the single. ‘It’s about growing up and revisiting homes you once lived in that look identical to how they were back then during childhood’ she said, ‘but then the juxtaposition of returning and life resembling no likeness anymore at all. Strange really isn’t it!’
Explaining how she doesn’t stick to a regular process for writing a song, Anna says: ‘sometimes the lyric is first, sometimes the melody, sometimes both. It’s a magical one with no strategy and that’s part of it’s beauty.’
Anna recently played in Harlow as part of the Harlow Playhouse’s BBC Introducing gigs. Speaking about the night, Anna said: ‘BBC Introducing in Harlow was a gorgeous night, fantastic venue and sound and the perfect setting for an intimate night of music. Great crowd too, I can only see that getting bigger and bigger!’
When I asked Anna what she thought of the Playhouse venue, she said it was a ‘great venue’, continuing with ‘the top room we were in had such a warm ambience with the seating and lighting. I really did love it!’
‘BBC introducing has been great with playing out my music and supporting my career’, explained Anna, ‘it can often be the hardest time to get ears to hear when you’re starting out and it’s wonderful to have them on board!’
Making musical waves not only in the UK but also over in America, Anna has just returned from a US tour which saw her playing in New York, Nashville and LA. ‘The crowds, having never played there before, completely blew me away. I couldn’t believe how many people were there!’ she said.
Anna Pancaldi’s new single, Keep On Keeping On, is out on 10th October, followed by a single launch at St Lenoards Church in London on 12th October. Tickets available here: https://billetto.co.uk/anna-pancaldi-single-launch.
