"Desperately close to a coffin of hope
I'd cheat destiny just to be near you" - from Wreck of the Day
My Opinions and Recommendations
Anna's voice catches your attention and her lyrics make you think. She is not your typical teenage pop princess, but instead seems more introspective and less concerned with being the next "it" girl. This makes Anna interesting. Her first CD, Wreck of the Day, has some great songs on it. Breathe 2AM was the first single, and it is still one of my favorites. I also really like In My Head, but if you like any one song, check out the whole album because Anna is consistent throughout it.
If you already like Anna, try Chantal Kreviazuk, who also has original lyrics and a memorable voice. I can see Anna evolving and making amazing albums the way that Chantal has recently done. Also, listen to Heather Nova. I actually think that Anna is a nice mix between Chantal and Heather Nova. I wouldn't be suprised if she was influenced by either of these artists. Finally, put Bonnie McKee in your stereo. Bonnie is new on the scene, but she mixes pop with interesting lyrics in the same way.
