Anna Nalick Biography

One of the most compelling emerging artist success stories of the past year, Anna Nalick struck gold with her debut album, Wreck of the Day, a refreshing blend of sophisticated wordplay, haunting melodies, subtle textures and an emotionally honest perspective. With all music and lyrics written by Anna, Wreck of the Day signaled the arrival of an unmistakable new voice in pop music.

Anna takes a heartfelt, introspective and spiritual approach when writing her words and music. She notes that "inspiration comes from a variety of sources," adding that her songs are "not necessarily about my personal experiences, but sometimes just observations of situations or relationships of different people I've known. They get funneled through my own inner psyche. Whatever the source of the interpretation, the feelings I get are personal. I find a need to write these feelings down in words and the melody follows." Although Anna's songs are intimate, they are poignantly universal at the same time.

Released in April 2005, Wreck of the Day entered the Billboard 200 bestselling albums chart at #20 and was certified RIAA Gold in September. Her break-out crossover single, "Breathe (2AM)," one of the year's most unforgettable tracks, reached #4 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, #6 on Adult Top 40, and reached #1 on Top 40 Adult Recurrents. A hit online as well as on-air, "Breathe (2AM)" has achieved RIAA Gold and Platinum Digital Single status.

Nalick was picked for Rolling Stone's "The Next List" of people to watch in 2005, is a VH1 "You Oughta Know" artist, and was singled out as a "Breakout Music Star" by US Weekly in its "Breakout Stars! Who Will Be Hot In 2006?" feature.

She embarked on her first ever North American concert tour in 2005, appearing as the opening act for the Wallflowers, Howie Day, and Rob Thomas as well as headlining her own shows.

She's continued to play throughout North America during 2006 and has seen "Breathe (2AM)" take on a new life after the song was played -- for an unprecedented five minutes! -- during a pivotal scene in ABC's smash primetime hit, "Grey's Anatomy." As Anna continues to rack up successes on the road as a riveting live performer, "Breathe (2AM)" is poised to break into the pop Top 20.

Anna Nalick went back into the studio recently to record a new version of her song, "Wreck of the Day," with 2006 Grammy-winning Producer of the Year Steve Lillywhite. Columbia Records plans to include the track -- along with three original demo tracks -- on an upcoming expanded edition of Anna's RIAA gold-certified Wreck of the Day.
