Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, and producer Anna Shoemaker is excited to kick off the promotion of her 2022 debut album via +1 Records with the release of her newest single “Sick!” coming September 8th. Anna first turned heads in the industry after releasing a viral mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Chance the Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses.” Since then, she released EP 'EastSide’ back in 2018 and ‘Everything Is Embarrassing’ during 2020 in addition to several other successful singles.
Anna Shoemaker has a voice that you cannot ignore. Her music is some that the indie pop world has never heard before, mixing in her classic-rock and pop roots with electronic and R&B flavoring.
The release of her newest single “Sick!” introduces the breakthrough of a more mature and intentional sound. This song demonstrates her development as an artist with the captivating storytelling and catchy melodic hooks that it presents. We are so excited to see where she goes with these soulful flares in her songwriting.
Her rich cello tone pierces through the layers of instruments as the song progresses, creating a hypnotic effect on her vocals. The song’s unique mix of relatable lyrics and catchy choruses makes it the perfect song to add to your calming bedroom-pop playlists or sing at the top of your lungs with the car windows rolled down. Anna Shoemaker truly has something for everyone.
With stylistic choices that fit right in with current industry icons like Halsey and Dua Lipa, her indie anthems put a spin on current pop trends. A luring spirit, she is paving her own way in the indie-pop genre, bringing in a hybrid of alternative R&B soul to her songwriting to enhance the introspective lyricism.
As a young voice in the industry, Anna provides the teen anthems that will transport you into the scenes she creates with her immersive songwriting and production techniques. The youthful energy that she naturally exudes counters storytelling that reveals her to be wise beyond her years.
Her writing has always resonated deeply with everyone in her broad audience, and the relatable lyrics in this song create the effect that you are experiencing the situation alongside her. Her reflective words in the chorus immerse you in her world with lines like “I've been feeling sentimental crying in the bathroom / I could get my shit together but I just don't want to / Is it sick I like missing you?” Her riveting storytelling develops throughout the song with hard hitting lyrics that tug hard on your heartstrings.
Anna’s future is undoubtedly bright, and we cannot wait to hear what is to come with her album set to be unveiled in early 2022.
