Following in the footsteps of the folk tradition, but decidedly veering down a new path, Anna Gordon writes ethereal dream folk songs laiden heavy with storyful lyrics. In an effort to express utmost vulnerability, Anna’s delicate and daring writing speaks of intimate truths and deep, dark waters. Her life story is told through her lyrics, dealing with the muddiness of love and relationships, the struggle for self-actualization, processing death, poverty, and sickness, and finding home. Sung through the eye of the natural world, her experiences are often steeped in metaphors of forests, bodies of water, and the star-studded heavens. Her voice is hauntingly beautiful, waxing and waning between brutal power and extreme delicacy, curving artfully through the landscapes her lyrics evoke. Though her songs are deeply personal, they are widely resonant.
Anna Gordon is currently based out of Olympia, Washington.
