Welcome to the magical world of Anna Calvi – a place where beauty and darkness conspire and collide, where untamed emotions conquer and consume.
Influenced by the vocals of artistes as diverse as Nina Simone, Maria Callas and Scott Walker, the guitars of Django Rheinhard and Robert Johnson, the classical romanticism of Ravel and Debussy, Anna Calvi may be inspired by musicians from the distant past, but her sound is still very much of the here and now.
Live, Anna Calvi has adopted an intimate backing band consisting of Mally Harpaz on guitar, harmonium and percussion, and Daniel Maiden on drums, and the results are often overwhelmingly epic.
