About Anna: With a combination of sultry voice and beautiful songwriting. Anna Davel has been mesmerising audiences for nearly two decades.
A little info about Anna. It started in 1997 when she became the overall winner of the annual ATKV Crescendo Competition, her self-penned entry Viooltjies (translated as “violets”) putting her firmly on the map as singer, songwriter and performer. The song made a remarkable impression with its theme of domestic abuse.
Anna obtained her Diploma in Light Music/Jazz at the Tshwane University of Technology in 1998. Later that year she joined the popular female a Capella group Cutt Glas and remained a member until 2003. The group toured throughout South Africa and abroad in countries such as the UK, Portugal, Finland, China and Belgium. During her time with the group they released three albums.
PRODUCTIONS: In 2003 Anna decided to do it solo and exciting things have been happening ever since! Her career has delivered eight highly acclaimed albums and a wealth of original music from her pen. In 2006 her debut solo album was awarded the prestigious SAMA for Best Adult Contemporary Album: Afrikaans and in 2008 she was nominated along with only five top South African ladies as Best Female Vocalist during the prestigious VMT Music Awards ceremony at Emperor’s Palace.
Anna regularly performs Jazz standards at corporate functions alongside top SA musicians (Timothy Moloi, Denny Lalouette, Brendan Ross, Mauritz Lotz, David Klassen and Matthys Maree). Her easy, soothing vocal style has resulted in this repertoire constantly being adapted to suit various occasions. She was also part of the annual Skouspel concert at the Sun City Superbowl. (The biggest event on the Afrikaans music calendar.)
A personal highlight for her is her 2013 performance in the RMB Starlight Classics. This production was held at Vergelegen Winefarms with the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra.
