“Silvera is a songsmith whose music simply aches beauty…pure poetry”
Time Out

Ana Silvera is a young singer and songwriter hailing from London. Soloing with English National Opera by her teens, Ana set about defining a unique song-writing style of the lush, tender, waltzy order – think Jacques Brel in English with fewer Gauloises, plus a pinch of Regina Spektor and Leonard Cohen thrown in for good measure.

"What interests me is telling archetypal stories in a new way, and unfolding those stories from unexpected perspectives" says Ana; perspectives which encompass everything from a starlet in war-torn Paris, a biblical and murderous Salome, an Irish choirboy and a dead poet’s wife. Not forgetting herself too, on occasion.
She plays the guitar too, and is accompanied on the double bass and cello by cohort Jon Cottle

‘Most recently, Ana has been In New York, playing with bassist Jeff Langston of Antony and the Johnsons.

She is currently embarking on her first studio album; her album "Live at West Road" is currrently available via OT records.

A new fan is born. I'm very impressed. Great music, great performances. Stories, dreams, thouhgts, John Dowland and Juliette Greco, jazz things and it's your own unique poetic style. Wonderful!

Best,

JS (Joerg Sommermeyer)

Congrats on the nomination! I had asked that same question! Alas! Not a real trophy, but still an honor just the same.

Regards and good luck.
