After a brief hiatus following her critically acclaimed sophomore album Cat & Bird, Anna Coddington returned to push in a new direction with a string of bold singles: ‘Bird In Hand’, ‘Make You Mine’ and ‘The Runner’. In 2015 she followed these with self-produced single ‘Slate’ and a NZ tour with US-based Silver Scroll winners LIPS.
October 21, 2016 will see the release of Luck / Time, her third album. The album is the culmination of five years of diligent songwriting and many hours in her home studio, combined with studio sessions at Auckland’s The Lab with some of NZ’s finest musicians. Singles ‘Release Me’ and ‘Lantern’ have set the tone and established Luck / Time as one of the most anticipated local releases of 2016.
Anna is known for her enchanting live performances and voice which “flows perfectly from soft to grunty”, and for her songwriting prowess which has seen her in the prestigious Silver Scroll songwriting award Top 20 list four times since 2010. She is a regular contributor with Fly My Pretties, has performed Aotearoa’s top music and arts festivals, and has sung her way around the country on numerous tours over the years.
