International songstress Anna Pancaldi burst back on to the scene this spring as she released her highly anticipated third EP ‘Sweet Charity’. With heavyweight support from both BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2, the new EP is the third release for the London-based artist, already a veteran, has now charted within the Top Ten of the iTunes Singer songwriter charts with all releases. Having sold out her last three London headline shows, Anna has enjoyed success in both the UK and US, where she made her US live TV debut on CBS, whilst also performing in NYC, Nashville and LA. She also enjoyed an extended collaboration with Levi’s, for whom she penned a song for their Lot 700 jeans collection and featured in the accompanying advert.
Her single ‘Keep On Keeping On’ has been playlisted by British Airways for their Unsigned Music Awards curated playlist, meaning the song will be on every British Airways flight in 2017! She has also gained huge support from Spotify being featured in 'New Music Friday', 'Piano ballads' and 'Easy'. Live performances included Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party and Cambridge Folk Festival as well as supporting Prides, Bryde, Seafret, Paper Aeroplanes, and most recently Jake Isaac on his European tour. Music aside and such is her entrepreneurial spirit, Anna has teamed up with North Yorkshire based distillery Mason’s to craft her own signature gin. Joe’s Gin is named after her brother, with an elderflower infused flavour that reminds her of her youth. Retailers including Harvey Nichols and Selfridges now stock the gin nationwide.
