Anna Wilson and her manager, Lisa Davis, are next on Music Business Radio.
Anna is a pop/jazz recording artist and songwriter whose timeless, sophisticated sound is juxtaposed by her stunningly contemporary voice and message. Her critically acclaimed sophomore CD, Time Changes Everything, was digitally released by Transfer Records in April 2007 as a follow-up to her debut, The Long Way (Asylum/Curb).
As a veteran performer, Wilson has toured with Boz Scaggs, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin and Dar Williams. As a prolific songwriter (Criterion Music Group), she has penned cuts for pop and country artists, including Reba McEntire, Chuck Wicks, and Lee Ann Womack. Wilson also has a long history of partnering with the entertainment industry and major consumer brands, and her songs can be found everywhere from Miramax films to the Whirlpool Corporation’s website.
Recently, Anna appeared in FOX's primetime, docu-soap, Nashville. Throughout the series, Anna's work as a writer and artist are highlighted. Anna is also featured in Habitat for Humanity International's televised public service announcements, which can be seen nationally on FOX News and in select markets. These spots center around Anna’s Habitat-inspired single, “A House, A Home,” which is available for download at habitat.org.
We talked about getting songs cut, getting record deals, being on a major label, getting dropped from a label, and more.
