Icelandic singer/songwriter, Anna Claessen has been singing since she was a young child. It wasn´t until she moved to Vienna, Austria where a jam with talented pianist Julian Ruths sparked her interest in creating her own material. After a successful concert at her college graduation, she knew she wanted to create music for a living. After this epiphany, Anna decided to move to L.A. to fulfill her childhood dream.
Claessen shares a vocal style similar to Mandy Moore, but has created her own sound by incorporating musical styles akin to American artists from the 50s and 60s. Anna finished her Associates in Vocal Performance at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and is now singing with the band Anna and the Bells
