Anna Carmody opens the Autumn Series at The Superior Sessions with Thornton Pianos with her original singles; Hangover and Gone Away Dear. The first performance ‘Hangover’ is an emotional song comparing a bad hangover to the breakdown of a relationship. Louis Younge accompanies Anna on keys.
Anna is influenced by artists such as Lana Del Rey and her favourite band; Villagers. Although a newcomer on the music scene, Anna has quickly made waves, headlining a live streamed gig in the Town Hall Theatre, Galway supported by the Galway City Council. Anna’s music has been described as beautifully haunting, touching the hearts of many with lyrics inspired by heartbreak, love and other strong life subjects. Anna draws inspiration from the people and life moments that struck a chord with her the most. She crafts her music with traces of indie-folk combining a stripped-back intimate blend with explosive and emotional elements to the delivery of her music.
Thornton Pianos are behind the ‘Superior Sessions’ – having launched in September 2020 to provide a performance space for emerging artists during a difficult time for the creative industries. With gigs cancelled and venues closed, The Superior Sessions have been providing a platform for emerging artists to grow and share their music with the exceptional sound of Ritmüller pianos.
