The Album

With this first album of compositions co-written with Ben Rando, Anna Farrow reveals her voice in moving melodies, voluptuous grooves and direct and nurtured lyrics.
 
Self-taught and with a French-English background, Anna pursues the singer-songwriter tradition in a specific musical world, accompanied by Ben Rando, Cédrick Bec and Sam Favreau, leading musicians on the jazz scene.


With real sensitivity, the throbbing pulse of jazz and blues blend with accents of soul and folk music, borne along by the harmony custom-made for Anna's voice.


Listeners thus find themselves immersed in a graceful rumba (Travelling Melody), real groove ! (Happy Fool), swaying jazz (Words), soaring blues (A Little Help)...

"With a blend of spicy jazz and a hint of neo soul under the skin, Anna Farrow captures music as an actress catches light: with a natural momentum of supple virtuosity, blended with a sip of electric sensual swing." 

Christian Larrède

***

« In her ambitious new venture with a pristine repertoire the Franco-Brittanic Anna Farrow cares little for convention. Her natural approach to this heart felt music allows her to choose not to choose : blending exotic perfumes with swaying rhythms, instinctive jazz/folk, neo nude. Anna is smoothly accompanied by the perfectly syncronized trio. The young lady lavishes in vibrant light for her moving after hours show.»
