Singer-Songwriter & Musician
Anna Gilbert, a singer-songwriter living in Portland, Oregon, composes songs about life, love, and loss. Gilbert's songs are from the heart, and she hopes she can bring warmth, truth, and sweetness into the heartbreak and sadness that affects us all. Gilbert also spends much of her time collaborating and co-writing with other artists in addition to pursuing her own musical endeavors. She has made music with Grammy Award winning producer Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, The Lone Bellow), Jeremy Larson (Sucre, Violents), Peter Hollens (Legendary Vocals), Troy Welstad (Pink!, Selena Gomez, A Fine Frenzy) and Grammy and Golden Globe nominee Sam Ashworth (H.E.R., Leslie Odom) just to name a few.
The Oregon native’s childhood memories are suffused with sound, melody, and the songs of James Taylor and Ricky Skaggs, Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell. Her father was a music major and teacher before becoming a minister, and both her parents performed in a bluegrass band that performed regularly. Gilbert followed suit, writing songs and accompanying herself on piano or guitar.
Gilbert's current projects include working on her Pop Project, Shy Honey - an up and coming synth pop band in Portland - and writing the music for MILAGRO, a new musical; a collaborative effort with Evynne Hollens. Gilbert also releases music monthly on Patreon as a creator. (Patreon.com/annagilbert).
"She's the surprise you've been waiting for,” Grammy Award winning producer Charlie Peacock claims. “Not only are her music skills in order, her personality is magnetic. She's the kind of artist I love to work with -- daring, teachable, funny, loving, and serious all at the same time."
