About the Artist
(New York, NY--September 18, 2007) Already a star in her native Sweden, 28-year-old, singer/songwriter, Anna Ternheim is poised to make her U.S. debut with her self-titled EP, available October 30th on Decca. Ternheim's hauntingly poetic style -- evident in both her vocals and eloquent songwriting - can be heard on every achingly beautiful song. One of the largest newspapers in Sweden was quoted as saying that Anna has "a voice that cuts like a knife...so beautiful it makes you want to cry." Her first-ever New York City performance at The Living Room is scheduled on October 19th as part of the famed CMJ Music Marathon conference. More tour dates will be announced soon in support of her full-length album to be released in March 2008.
Anna Ternheim began playing the guitar, writing songs and performing when she was only ten years old. During a year abroad in Atlanta, Georgia, Anna put together her first band Sova and played at smaller festivals and local clubs. After almost two years, Anna returned to Sweden to release her debut album, Somebody Outside on Universal/Stockholm in 2004. Following the release of Somebody Outside she won a Swedish Grammy Award for Best Newcomer, and was nominated for Best Female Artist, Best Lyricist and Best Songwriter in 2005. Her second full-length album, Separation Road, garnered two Swedish Grammy wins in the Best Female Artist and Best Lyricist categories.
Her Decca EP features two songs from Somebody Outside including the fragile, "My Secret" and the evocative "I'll Follow You Tonight," as well as the melodic tunes "Today Is A Good Day" and "Lovers Dream" from her sophomore effort, Separation Road. To round out the EP, Ternheim does David Bowie proud with her interpretation of "China Girl" from her Shoreline EP and "Bridges" from the Lovers Dream EP. The disc also features bonus video footage of her performing "Shoreline" by Swedish, indie-rock band Broder Daniel.
