♩Wed Music. Suddenly Anna Calvi - Suddenly
A powerhouse artist much in the same vein as PJ Harvey, the passionate English performer does not shy away from tapping into her emotional core to reveal her dark fears and wild fantasies, showing off her knack for dramatics with rolling, crashing percussion and gut-wrenching vocals. Calvi’s voice is omnipresent
⌘ Who is that #remarkable woman ? Anna Margaret Michelle Calvi (born 24 September 1980) is an English singer-songwriter and guitarist. Her accolades include three Mercury Prize nominations, one Brit Award nomination, and a European Border Breakers Award. She has been noted by some critics as a virtuoso guitarist, as well as for her powerful, wide-ranging operatic contralto voice and sometimes androgynous stage appearance.

She subsequently worked as a private guitar instructor before embarking on a music career. She released her eponymous debut album in 2011 through Domino Records to critical acclaim, earning a Mercury Prize nomination for Album of the Year, a British Breakthrough Act nomination at the 2012 Brit Awards and a European Border Breakers Award.
Her second album, One Breath was released in 2013, earning her a second Mercury Prize nomination.
