"The voice is confident, natural in It’s emission, smooth in the music flow"
ANNA FARROW | SMILE
To be released on OCTOBER 2018
After a first rather contemplative album, Anna has chosen to write music of a particularly optimistic nature.
No big talks but lightness and a touch of humour to sing about the search of happiness (New born day) Choices (Yes or no) Relationships (Boys and girls) Change (leave)
With her second album Smile Anna blends soul and pop sounds with English and french lyrics.
The album Smile embraces acoustic music with guitar-voice songs as Count on me and also produced and punchy music with tracks such as New born day or Boys and girls.
The song Happy Fool of her first album is often played in the morning on Jazz radio, according to Benoit Thuret it has great Zest.
The intention for this second album is to create "Smiling songs"!
All is well for Anna Farrow!
SMILE | WORK IN PROGRESS!

"MUST TSF Jazz"
« 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.»
