New England Music Award nominee Anna Madsen returns with ‘Whisper’ and tour dates

Having received a Songwriter of the Year nomination from the New England Music Awards, performed on Britain’s ITV ‘Christmas Carols’ and gained support from BBC Radio 2 leading to inclusion on Spotify UK’s Hot Hits UK playlist, Anna Madsen has returned with second studio album ‘Whisper’ and released dates for her tour.

Musically, Anna has been described as “Lana Del Rey meets Kate Bush meets Enya,” but ultimately her music is completely her own and expands beyond one genre. The singer-songwriter takes inspiration from classic romanticism, fairy tales, and her own personal experiences, using storytelling through music as a way to create worlds that listeners can enter and completely absorb.

Anna’s Mormon heritage influenced her music greatly and while she is currently not active in the church, she acknowledges that it was a vital part of her personal and musical identity.  She believes that our personalities reflect the dark and light in each of us and track ‘Pioneer Hymn’ is just as representative of Anna as much as darker ‘Black Dress’ is.

In October 2015 Madsen released her debut EP ‘Palm Reader’, which immediately caught the media’s attention, gaining Anna a role in the motion picture ‘Granite Orpheus’. The film’s soundtrack features Anna’s song ‘Palm Reader’ as well as an Anna Madsen/Alex Preston duet, ‘I Would Save You.’

Soon after, Anna received two New England Music Awards nominations (Best New Act and Video of the Year) and was invited to perform at the Awards Show in April 2016.

Her second full length album ‘Whispers’ was released March 2017 and distributed by Nova via Universal Music. The record features notable appearances from Anthony Phillips of Genesis, Kate St. John of Dream Academy, and drummers Jonathan Mover and Dave Mattacks.
