Anna Wise is one of electronic music’s most beautiful voices. A goddess in her own right, Anna’s vocals first came into the earphones of many back in 2009 when she and her partner-in beats, Dane Orr, dropped their debut cult-classic album Golden Ageunder the moniker Sonnymoon. It didn’t take long for word to spread because eventually rap king Kendrick Lamar came calling and Anna soon found herself in the main spotlight. It was her sultry moans and gorgeous vocals/melodies that opened up and set the tone on Kendrick’s monstrous track “These Walls” for which they won a Grammy award.
Since then, Anna has become a voice for women in a “times up” climate with anthems like “BitchSlut” and the below gem “Decrease My Waist, Increase My Wage.” Her current projects include a new indie avant-garde album with the talented Jon Bap and her voice was recently heard on HBO’s mega-hit Insecure.
Without a doubt there is only more to come, so listen to her, follow her, love her. You won’t regret it.
