    Anna Nalick

    Get her new CD. It's very solid.


    Some songs to sample:


    Breathe (radio hit)
    Wreck of the Day
    Bleed
    Paper Bag



    I don't really know how to classify her music. It's pop, but has a bit more bite to it lyrically. Kind of reminds of a Liz Phair or Michelle Branch, but better vocally.

    Here's a review:

    Yet another songstress added to the surplus of crooning folksy pop singer-songwriters, Anna Nalick summons the catchiest of melodies and the indie-cool street cred of Southern California to create Wreck of the Day, her debut into the world of the music industry. With influences from Fiona Apple to Tori Amos, Anna formulates her own version of such popular genres of pop chick rock using, of course, lyrics detailing the more poignant moments of her life.

    As most chick pop rock goes, Wreck of the Day is relatable to the every-girl, pleasant to listen to, gets stuck in your head, and is non-offensive to the parental earóa great stocking stuffer! Itís the stuff youíll hear on the radio as sheís nominated for Grammy after Grammy. Yet it fails to make a lasting impression. Itís the ďnice CDĒ in the rack. Itís pleasant and polite and has potential, yet not anything anyone will be scrambling to get to. In fact, itís so polite and non-offensive that you feel like you must be courteous to it in return.

    Sounds kind of like Vanessa Carlton, Sarah Mclachlan, Michelle Branch, Tori Amos and Maria Mena rolled into one generic emotional hopefulóa lucky lady who, in the eyes of music industry hounds, had dollar signs twinkling from every soulful chord and catchy hook. And good for her; her dream of being a performer and singer-songwriter is fast coming true. The great thing about Anna Nalick is the versatility that comes with being the ďnice CD.Ē She canít really receive any of the flak that singers like Britney Spears or Pop Diva #-whatever do since she writes her own stuff, and her voice ainít too shabby either. Itís soulful and airy but not too much of either, and itís wracked with emotion but not to the dreaded emotional extent. The only problem with ultra-versatility is that there is no distinctive trait that makes the music unique. Itís well done but lacks a signature. And all music deserves a signature.

    I know her ex-boyfriend! He's my best friend's cousin and his name is Josh. She even thanks him on her CD! I like her CD a lot, she has a lovely voice.
    A recent survey stated that the average person's greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death which was third on the list. So, you're telling me that at a funeral, most people would rather be the guy in the coffin than have to stand up and give a eulogy.

    I just saw Anna Nalick for time #8 and 9 this weekend. She is such an amazing artist and person. I have never seen someone so appreciative of their fans. Yes, she is still new but seriously, I don't think she will change.

    She's much better than Britney Spears. :x

    I have her CD, and I love it. Her vocals need some work, but she's not bad. Her lyrics are amazing though.
