Anna Coogan UK tour

Songwriter Anna Coogan has announced a string of UK tour dates this October, as part of her international The Silver Sea Tour. Anna will be kicking things off in London (Green Note) then heading on to Glasgow, Nottingham and Essex. Now celebrating her thirteenth year as a performing songwriter, Coogan has released five critically acclaimed full- length records and toured extensively around the US, UK, and Europe. Her music has been described as “absolutely gorgeous” (BBC
Radio Scotland) and “simply divine” (Maverick Magazine). Blabber’n’Smoke reviewed her 2011 album The Wasted Ocean here

After moving from Seattle to Ithaca, New York in 2011, Anna began to find her voice among a group of avant-garde musicians living in upstate New York. Under the tutelage of freak-country artist Johnny Dowd, Anna traded her acoustic guitar for a 1979 Stratocaster and began to move away from her folk roots. She began writing songs with longtime friend and producer JD Foster (Calexico, Patty Griffin), and powerhouse drummer Willie B (Jamie Lidell, Neko Case). Inspired and driven by collaboration, Anna plays electric guitar for several upstate NY outlets, including Mary Lorson (Madder Rose), and Johnny Dowd, and has produced several records by young musicians in Upstate New York. She is currently touring her 2015 collaboration with JD Foster “The Birth of the Stars”, as well as a new live record made with Willie B at the Triple Door in Seattle.
